Everything in books and movies is better. The reason it’s better is because we know their future or the beginning plot of the story, however in our lives we have no damn clue of where we’re going or what’s going to happen.
It’s comforting to watch an anime or a movie, knowing even if that scene was literally taken and drawn exactly from real life, it still managed to look better in an anime or fiction realm.
Why? Because it’s comforting to relate to other people’s lives in a story and hope that it ends up being in ours.
It comforting to know we can live many different lives from the perspective of one life we call our reality.
And most likely than not, the stories we grow attached to are the ones with happy endings.
Examples (no photos are my own, they all were found on Google):
Just yesterday I picked up two books at target. I am so excited to read them!
The two books:
1. “Me before you” by Jojo Moyes
~this was bought because I read the back of the book, and was sucked into it being the hopeless-romantic that I am. Also, it turns out this was made into a movie that’s popping into theaters on June 3, 2016. Now I’m even more excited.
2. “Dream house” by Marzia Bisognin
~this was bought because I read the back of the book, and it sounds a bit like a mystery or scary book. I used to read Nancy Drew books like a fiend in elementary school, however, not so much scary reads (especially scary movies) so this is my way of stepping outside of my box. Also, it was written by one of my favorite YouTubers (CutiePieMarzia). ^_^
❤️ PSA: if you ever go to target with me, I guarantee we (or I, I should say) may spend a good 10-20 minutes in the book section. Just a warning 🙂
Also, I tend to add to my book collection although there’s still a few books lined up for me to read haha. Does anyone else do this?
