Inkheart by Cornilia Funke. I was 12 when I read it and made me want to write fantasy stories just like it

Inkheart, Inkspell, Inkdeath, Children of the lamp book 1 and book 2. The reason for all the Inkheart series cause they were all equally amazing, I love fantasy and the idea in the story of Silvertongues is pretty cool, wish I was one haha.

Like friends, I'm a very social person and love when my readers talk to me about anything

When I was 14, I was trying to write a vampire story, finished it but old computer I had before crashed and my story was gone forever
