I’m looking for something, for a very particular kind of book that I haven’t had the pleasure of reading for quite some time now. I’m waiting for a new voice to come along and whisper in my ear that it has a story to tell me, and then find it to be the most remarkable story I’ve ever heard.
I want to read a book whose every word is stuffed with beauty, and is just the perfect word for that phrase and sentence.
I want to read a book that takes me somewhere new just to show me truths I have always held inside.
I want to read a book that gives me the feeling of discovery even if it doesn’t involve a long journey to parts unknown.
I want to read a book where I can escape from boredom and into reality.
I want to read a book with all the wonderful atmosphere of magic whether or not a character chants a spell.
I want to read a book which can hold me firm in its grasp from morning to night.
I want to read a book that, long or short, will last in my heart forever.
I’m looking for a book to fall in love with, and I seem to be looking for it in all the wrong places.
I don’t suppose anyone could help me?
One thought on “Looking For Love”
I’d try Les Miserables by Victor Hugo, Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoevsky, and especially the Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss.
