I love reading. Understatement of the…ever, but it’s true! I love reading, and I love interacting with other readers and bloggers and authors. I love book covers and…wait, I have to save these for my reasons!
1) Book covers
Such pretty covers! Like these ones:
2) Other book bloggers
In fact here are some of my favourite book bloggers of YA fiction:
3) Reading different genres
Okay, so most of my TBR pile is full of contemporary YA books. But I read other genres as well! Recently, I’ve read these awesome books:
4) Being part of a fantastic community!
This one speaks for itself. Love you all!
Reading is when I relax, and when I can stop worrying about stuff.
6) Helps with writing
7) When people make references to other books by using characters from one book and you KNOW WHERE BOTH OF THEM ARE FROM
Heh heh heh. Okay so this is more a movie reference than a book reference, but…still.
8) “Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book. And then there are some books which you can’t tell people about, books so special and rare and yours that advertising your affection feels like betrayal”
This quote from The Fault in Our Stars perfectly summarises why I read. Because when you find a book like this, there’s no other feeling like it.
9) Connecting with authors
Thanks mostly to Twitter, I’ve connected with Australian authors through their books: Emily Gale, Steph Bowe and Gabrielle Tozer just to name a few!
10) Watching the film adaptations of YA books
For example, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, my favourite book-to-movie adaptation (besides Harry Potter, because duh):
