I sometimes pretend to myself that I have insomnia.
When what I really have is a good book and an inadequate respect for tomorrow.

I am so into reading right now! Which probably sounds hilarious, but I mean more than usual!!!!!!
I can’t explain it, but I can’t get enough of books! Even bad ones… and I’m reading novels quicker than I can review them. Having barely read anything during my first year of university because of adjusting and workload etc., it’s like I’m appreciating books all over again from a fresh perspective! They feel all the more precious, valuable and vital.
I love this quote because I am a night owl and have often been known to stay up until 4 or 5am in the morning to finish a good book. It doesn’t matter whether I have something important the next day or how many times I should tell myself to get a good nights sleep I always end up reading into the night, which usually means I’m knackered the next day! For instance, last night I stayed up till just past 4am reading I Heart Paris by Lindsey Kelk and didn’t get up today until 1.30pm.
What is the longest you’ve stayed up to read a book?
