Twenty Things Reading Has Taught Me!
Today of all days is my twentieth birthday. (Woo!) And in light of now being two decades old, I thought I would reflect upon all the things that reading has taught me over the many years:
- There is nothing more valuable than the knowledge that you can learn from books
- Colleen Hoover will make you cry every time. Every. Dang. Time.
- Boys in books are just better
- Shell Silverstein will always make you smile
- The TV/Movie world may never do Cassandra Clare justice
- It’s okay to write in/dog ear/page flag books
- There is no shame in reading self help books
- Manga is fun, but maybe just not for me
- Anderson’s Fairytales cures any book hangover
- It’s okay to judge a book by its cover, but don’t let that stop you from reading it anyways!
- Twilight, no matter how lame, will always be the book that comes to mind when someone asks what book you have re-read the most
- It’s okay to not understand what makes a classic a classic, you will most likely understand eventually
- The world is full of so many adventures, always take advantage of them when they come your way.
- No character is ever safe from death
- The answer to all of life’s questions can be found in books
- Pre-order perks are always worth it
- Fictional best friends are totally real
- You will never be too young to read Middle Grade/Young Adult novels
- True love is real
- Magic exists.
These are just some of the many lessons that being an avid reader my entire life has taught me. Some are silly, some are seriously valuable. I hope you can relate to some of these as well!
