It has always been about magical worlds and epic adventures for me; Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were firm favourites when I was growing up. I also loved The Wardstone Chronicles by Joseph Delaney.
I was 11 when the first Harry Potter book came out and I was hooked immediately! JK Rowling has created such a beautifully detailed and captivating magical world.
For me, all of these books have been the source of so much wonderful and almost therapeutic escapism – I think that is one of the most brilliant things about reading.
