An Old Post

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?

  1. You got a lot of great books in this list, plus a lot more that I would love to read!

    Favorite Category? Probably Magic Show, but if I only ever got magic books, I'd get bored. I love various types of books for spicing up my life.

    Currently reading The Evolution of Mara Dyer and also Renhala.

  2. I totally remember reading this post when you did it on Katie's blog! I loved it then, and I love it now. It's just so brilliant and amazing. :)

  3. This was the greatest guest post ever! I love that you were able to look back on it and discover why you loved books! I still need to read Hex Hall! haha :) Awesome post Kare! :)

  4. I loved Hex Hall! Love this post!


  5. That was an awesome post, love that meme! :) Great blog.
