*Warning: you are about to get an alarming dose of cheesy things, hence the cheese-rain-related title.
Reading has done so much for me and is still being a constant in my life when everything else whirls around me. Good things come and go and life moves on, but books are one good thing in my life that won’t fade. If that isn’t my cue to gush about them, I don’t know what is. So let’s get started!
1. Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
For filling my childhood with wonder and magic, and being a home to me.
2. Furthermore by Tahereh Mafi
For calming my anxiety while I read it with its whimsy, fantasy and limitless world.
3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
For introducing me to a favorite genre, dystopian, and giving me characters I will never forget.
4. Diaries of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
For making me smile despite the hard times I went through because Anxiety(TM).
5. They Both Die At The End by Adam Silvera
For opening my eyes to what ‘You only live once’ really means and telling me to do my best to live without regrets in the best way possible, aka ripping my heart to pieces.
Wow, these all sound like book dedications. Wait, has anyone ever dedicated a book to another book ? Or a bookish character ? I do wonder… I guess when someone wants to do that, it’s the author they ought to dedicate the book to.
I’ve seen a lot of dedications to other authors, like in The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, dedicated to Cassandra Clare. I wish I could have a list of all the authors I’d love to meet, but it would be way too long xD If I’d dedicate a book to an author I love, it would be Victoria Aveyard because I love the Red Queen series to pieces. The same pieces that are were torn apart from my heart when I read King’s Cage and Glass Sword, of course 😂
