Thinking back to my childhood, I was never really a bookworm. I read what I had to for school or church or anything else I was involved in and that was about it. I do remember I enjoyed reading sections out of a book in front of the class at school but never read anything outside of school for fun.
I remember going over to my friends house one day in middle school and she was reading a book. I was very confused because she was reading something that wasn’t school related and was just reading it for fun. I was skeptical at first but she started telling me about the book and I became very interested in it.
After that, I read every book that I could get my hands on! I read comedies, romances, mysteries, biographies and so much more. I read every chance that I could and sometimes that’s all I ever did. I loved reading and often fell in love with the characters and became emotionally attached to their stories and personalities.
One reading memory that sticks out to me is my senior year of high school. I took two semester of literature classes and wasn’t quite sure what I had gotten myself into. We read a total of twenty books in those two semesters and I loved every second of it. It helped me grow as a reader because we read books from many different genres which broadened my list of authors to choose from!
As college came around, I found myself too busy to sit down and read a good book. I would start a book but never finished it because homework and my social life became a little more important. Although I am still in college, I would like to make more time to read the books that I love and get back into falling in love with fictional characters.
