Books That Made Me: World Book Day Inspired Post

Books are the way to new worlds. 
They allow us to experience anything 
And everything that we want to do in the world. 
They are the way to worlds that we didn't even know existed 
But we don't know what to do without. 
Allow us to open doors in this world
That change us, make us learn, 
Allow us to know that anything is possible 
If only we believe.
Books are escapism when we need them the most. 
Books can change our lives, for better. 
Books make us better people. 
They made us, well us. 
Here are the books that made me...



Twilight (Twilight, #1)Book One: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

This book opened the door to a new world that I didn't know existent. It opened the door to YA and I haven't looked back...







Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging (Confessions of Georgia Nicolson, #1)Book Two: Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison 

This book opened the door to a world I already knew existent but not in fiction. It taught me that life can be messy and embarrassing and that that's OK and the female friendships rule!





The Hunger Games (The Hunger Games, #1)
Book Three: The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins 

This book opened the door to a world of fun and fans and films. It changed my life and stained my heart, I would not be the same person without this book. 








Star Girl (Stargirl #1)Book Four: Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

This book illustrates that sometimes you make mistakes and that you have the chance to correct them. That to kind is always the best route. 









Book Five: The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling 


This book opened a door to a magical land of witches, wizards, dragons and everything that my imaginations wanted and I haven't left since. 





Am I Normal Yet? (The Spinster Club, #1)Book Six: Am I Normal Yet? by Holly Bourne

This book opened my mind and told me that it's OK not to be normal and that what is going on in your brain is as important as what goes on the inside. 








All of the AboveBook Seven: All Of The Above by Juno Dawson

This book was the first time that I saw a part of myself in a book and showed me how important representations is. 












Book Eight: Radio Silence by Alice Oseman 

This book taught me that sometimes university can be shit and that's OK and that friendship will always help you through it. 







So this was a different kind of post and was inspired by the YALC of the same name. I had fun writing this post as I have definitely been feeling in a writing mood the last couple of days. 

I hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you soon,

2nd Year Blogging Anniversary and GIVEAWAY (CLOSED)

So if you see by the title of the blog post, it has been over two years, on the 15th June 2015, since my first blog post. I said in my last blog post that a lot has changed in a year but I feel like the thing that has changed most is the layout because let's face it I haven't really been consistent this year. (I blame university.) Although my posts are inconsistent I still love blogging and come up with so many ideas that I want to write about and would love to become more consistent over the next year but we will see how that goes. Blogging comes with a great community of people and Twitter chats have made me find so many books that I love and interact with great people so I am happy to be part of this community. 

So last year I completed a mini-survey which spoke about books that I like and want to read to see if I might have changed in a year so I thought that this was something I will do again...

Turning 21?

You see I have put this blog post for such a long time but tomorrow the inevitable will happen and I will turn 21. I don't know why I decided to add and to keep a question mark in the title because it's not like it is going to happen it will but maybe it's because I just don't feel like it. Queue all the age is nothing but a number talk but I  guess that this is not what this blog post is going to be about. 

Being 21 has always been the number that I have aspired to, the one that has been in the back of my mind for the longest time. When I was 18, I knew that at 21 I would be in my final year of university, which I am, and that I would graduate this year and on to the future. But am I right?

I feel like so much has changed it want this magic number must be, given the bears with keys in their hands as if a sign that this would be the time that we would get keys of our own and would gain so much independent. But this is it, it is just a dream. 

That's not going to happe…
