"'A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one."
Brazilian reader with way too much time in her hands. My mother dropped me in my head when I was four. It shows in my reviews.
This still kinda of reads as a fanfic to me,and I say that in the least offensive way possible. Fanfics usually focus more on character development than world building (which is exactly what happens in these books)
