Melissa W (melissawiebe80) | 11 comments Hi all! Don't know what else to say but that I love books and have found it a way to escape some of the things that have happened to me. Its has also been a way to let me know how one properly socializes with others (I don't seem to pick up on social cues correctly).

Anyways, I love books and have been trying to expand what I read by reading non-fiction (I find non-fiction sometimes very dry and boring; guess that comes with being a history major and having to read a lot non-fiction material) and also fantasy/sci-fi.

One of my favourite books (I have many) is Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. I guess its one of my favourites due to the fact that it combines an actual historical event with a fictional narrative.
