Historical fiction novels are my favorite genre when it comes to reading. I love getting lost in the time zone and historical setting while reading them.

She gasps. I break from my astonishment and look at her. She is not able to breathe properly. She struggles and twitches while I kneel down beside her, hopelessly staring in shock. “Hey, what’s wro-” I just realise that the Earth’s gravity and atmospheric pressure is too much for her. “No, no no no nooo!” […]
