My Journey with Books
I was blessed to love books from a young age. My grandmother was an avid reader and she definitely passed her love of books on to me! I can remember being very young and asking her to read the dictionary to me (who does that?). We also had these big, brown encyclopedias of information that I would ask her to read to me. She taught me cursive when I was in first grade and we had a bird book that I had memorized. Her children (my dad and three uncles) and I used to make fun of her because she read the typical old lady books – you know the ones…with a handsome, half naked man on the front. If she wasn’t reading them, she was reading mysteries. Now looking back at those memories, I guess karma is laughing in my face, because all I read are dirty *young* lady books and mysteries (along with some other genres).
My favorite genres are definitely smutty books and young adult books. However, just this April I have determined that I love books that fall under the umbrella term Fantasy (thank you Sarah J Maas). I owe my friend Sophie a lot of credit for getting me back into reading. Her book recommendations are FIRE and I haven’t disliked a book she’s offered me to read. Quarantine has also opened my eyes back up to reading. Working full time and being in grad school doesn’t leave me a lot of time to do what I enjoy. The unexpected break that 2020 has given us has helped my mental health heal from a crazy job and allowed me to get back into reading…hence me being here!
I have a lot of favorite books, but I thought I would share my absolute favorites with you right now…it won’t be the last time you hear about them anyway, so here’s a soft introduction!
My dad was a single father and my gran used to read this to me when I was little. I still have it and it will always have a special place in my heart.
SO, this is me in a nutshell. I hope I haven’t scared you away – I’ll only get weirder from here! Check out my social media accounts and let me know what you’d like to see more of (books obviously!).
Thanks for hanging out with me!
