I hope you are doing well ❤
So, of course I love reading. But what started it? That’s a difficult to question for even me to answer. To be honest, for the longest time I read only subjective books (Boring I know), but that was because fiction or the book community was not very popular where I grew up.
Then this one time while visiting my grandparents house, my mom asked me to buy a book from one of the small vendors at a railway station. I asked her why and she said ‘so you have something to keep you busy throughout the journey.’ And guess what I picked? A freaking comic book because of course we love colors and pictures.
After that I picked up a book every time we visited my grandparents house.
Slowly, as I grew older I started to reach for fictional books (not the popular ones) and even though their quality wasn’t astounding, I kept wanting to read more and more.
And then wallah ! When I was 16, I read ‘The Hunger Games’ and ‘The Percy Jackson’ for the first time and tell you what, it blew my mind. I was ecstatic and happy, I felt as if this part of the world that was hidden from me has suddenly opened to me now. And I remember thinking to myself ‘what shit have I been reading till now?‘ and ‘Where are more books like this?’
Hahaha, you get it and then I stumbled upon Booktube because we love the internet and its recommendation system. That started it all, I started making TBR’s, watching and reading reviews, trying my best to get hands on these wonderful books and trying my best to be part of this lovely community.
Also I love stories in every freaking form! I watch movies, anime, tv-shows, c-dramas, k-dramas etc.
And lastly I love reading y’all. I love it. Its an experience that nothing else in this world can surpass. I mean the fact that a human being can create an entire universe just through words? Arghh dont even get me started on it.
And now I want to share my love and joy of reading books with you guys. May we finish all our reading goals and may we thrive together ❤
Until next time,
