Paperback Castles

I live on a page in a book. My name is written in a curly and swirly font, along with long descriptions of sleepless nights and filled bookcases.

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (Barnes & Noble Leatherbound Classics Series)

The Adventures of Tom Sawyer - Mark Twain I cannot, cannot, cannot, cannot believe that I haven't read this one before. I even read Huck Finn a dozen of times when I was younger, but apparently never realized that it was a sequel to this. How it could have escaped my attention I'll never know.

Reading this was delightful. Mark Twain portrays, with great humour, the carefree adventures of childhood and the simplistic and innocent way only a child can think. I especially loved the parts where Tom got irrationally melodramatic, as I clearly remember being that way myself.
I can never really get enough of Twain's writing as he had a peculiar way with words, making him capable of documenting accents and therefore giving his various characters individualistic and unique voices.
