I had never read a book out of pleasure before a year and a bit ago, It was always a chore I actually hated it because it was something I was forced to do. Out of the blue (only because I had no electric in my house) I picked up a book, how much life changed since that day.
Reading now is a passion of mine, I make sure I take time out of my day to open a book and fully escape into the characters lives I’m reading about. I have fallen in love, travelled the world, had adventures and met exciting new characters with the turn of ever page, I’m sad I hadn’t found reading before but its better late than never.
Through my new interest I have found my favourite author Paige Toon, her books are beautifully written bringing you into a world that you can see yourself in. I love that she uses a lot of her years of living and growing up in Australia in her books her description and love for the country makes me want to pack a bag and go and see all the beautiful places she is describing. I get carried away with the characters she has created, they are relatable, broken, complicated, make you see things in a different way, they could be you or your friends and I have falling in love with a couple of them Nathan and Sam how I wish they were real. I really like that she brings her characters back through her backs they sneak into other books giving you a glimpse of what they are up to.
Every book I read of hers leaves me wanting more, this what brings me on to The Hidden Pages, Paige has a FREE website that you have to subscribe to, she releases The Hidden Pages of her books extra chapters of her already realised books and new one-off stories. It is such a fantastic idea, its like you get a little bit of extra bonus cake of a book you really loved and snippets of new stories you wish would really continue.
