Weekly Whatever is a new thing I'm going to try. Basically I post about something going on in my life or bookish things that I love or even about the way Doctor Who rocks my socks. It can be bookish or it can be a rant about the way people chew their food. Anything is game. It's just random collection of whatever. Hence the name.
This week I'm taking a step down memory lane. I was looking through Katie's blog (Call Me Crazy Ya Reviews) and I noticed a guest post I had written up for her. It was on why I loved books, and what they are to me. I vaguely remember writing it but even as I read it, the one who wrote it, it reminded me why I love books and sometimes you just need that reminder. I thought I'd post it on my blog. Enjoy!
To me books are:
A time machine
(The Book Thief, To Kill a Mocking Bird, and Night)
A magic show
(Harry Potter, My Fair Godmother , and City of Bones)
A portal to another world
(The Chronicles of Narnia, The Iron King, and Now You See it)
A key to the past
(Revolution, Nobody’s Princess, and A Great and Terrible Beauty)
A window to the soul
(The Mocking Birds, I am the Messenger , and By the time you read this I’ll be Dead )
A vision of what could be
(The Hunger Games, Inside Out, and The Forest of Hands and Teeth)
A non-stop Laugh
(Hex Hall, Demonglass, and Just one Wish,)
A story between a boy and a girl
(The Oracle of Dating, Love Undercover, and At first Sight)
A view through a boy’s eyes
(Infinity, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and The Giver)
What are books to you? What do books give you? Which is your favorite category? Any suggestions to add?
