There’s nothing in the world I love more than reading (except maybe watching movies with Ryan Gosling in them). Reading has always been an escape for me. I find that reading fictional stories helps me in understanding the world better. Classic literature in that sense is a genre that I’m connected to so closely because I find myself in awe of the emotional link that is present between the reader and the storyteller, regardless of how the time periods differ. Whether you’re sailing alongside Ishmael in his attempt to conquer the seemingly impossible, or sitting alongside Jane Eyre as she overcomes the trauma of her past abuse by fearlessly facing the trials and tribulations of her life, it can certainly be said that the characters we know and love, or sometimes know and hate, have a way of tugging at our emotional heartstrings in unique ways.
