Books I'm thankful for

I have this blog because I love books. Plain and simple. The reasons I love books are not as simple, but I can easily say that my love of reading and writing has shaped me into a better person than I would have become, had I not discovered my passion for books. I am thankful to every book out there. Not just for myself but for others, because I'm sure every book has helped at least one person. Sure, I may not like them all, but I don't need to. There are two series I am immensely thankful for, that have really affected my life, like I'm sure some of the books I don't like I have done for others.

I can read this series over and over and not get sick of it. This is my ultimate favorite, and it's gotten me through some tough times. Here's the story:

Five minutes before moving out of my hometown where I lived for 14 years, me and my dad had to go to the groery store to get one last thing for the move. I saw Vampire Academy sitting on the shelves and I begged my dad for it because it had the word 'Vampire' in the title. Best. Move. Ever. Since then I have move about five or six times and each time I re-read this series because it helps. I don't know why, but it helps.

Confession: I'm nowhere near being a Twihard. In fact, I don't even like these books. I use to, but not anymore. These books, however, were the stepping stone to my paranormal and book obsession. These books showed me that reading was more than just words on paper, an that reading can break my heart and mend it back together again. I learned a lot from these books, and while they were my absolute favorite at first, I soon learned that they are not all that great.

  1. oh my gosh, i LOVE Vampire Academy!! Unfortunately, i didn't put it as the series that I'm thankful for because House of Night was what started it all for me. Without HoN, i wouldn't have found VA. Amazing :D
