Falling in Love….with reading

There’s something just plain magical about finding a genuinely fantastic book. The book you can’t put down, the one you stay up half the night reading, the book experience you can’t wait to talk about with your friend who is hopefully as equally obsessed with the story and characters as you are. The one that, once you finish, leaves you devastated (in the best way, of course).

Once you know true book love, your whole life changes. Because immediately after you finish one spectacular book, you’ll want more. More books, more genres, more authors to discover. You’ll wonder why you haven’t been reading your entire life. Your bookshelves will start to overflow and groan under the weight of other people’s stories. Your library card will become worn down and faded with use. You will spend hours and hours reading alright-but-kind-of-mediocre books your sister recommended, only to find them lacking. But once you find the next amazing book, the one that makes you want to skip work or school so you can read one more chapter, it’s so, so worth it.

  1. I haven’t had time to read in a while, but I miss it. I’m currently looking for something to draw my attention… but nothing has interested me enough to take my attention away from little G.

    My all time favorite book (or… unfinished series. The last one is coming out soonish) is Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz. It’s amazing.

    • It’s so hard to find time for reading sometimes 😦 I think you’d like the 100 year old man..book, so funny and a fast read, I’ll keep my out for that one Dean Koontz is such a good author!
