Do you ever see a post and think that is me? Or wonder, “who found this picture or video of me and decided to post this on the internet?” Yeah, me too. Here are some book-related posts that I’ve come by which speak to my soul…
*Disclaimer: None of these posts are my own, they all belong to the authors of the post. Only the post cover photo is mine.*
1: That feeling of so many emotions and thoughts wanting to burst out of you after you’ve finished a good book but have no one to share it with? Yeah, I’ll admit I have gone on an air rant like this at times. However, now I have this blog to post on so feel free to scream with me here anytime!
2. Just like these book posts speak to my soul, oftentimes lines in books also speak to my soul. I love it when this happens because as this post explains: something you’ve been thinking or feeling is put into words. It may help you to better understand yourself or your world as well. I think this is one of the greatest feelings while reading a book. It could be a fiction book, but the feelings and impact it leaves on the reader are real.
3. I came across this book tok the other day and laughed my head off. It is really hard for a booklover to pass up on a great sale, especially when they are softcovers and “barely even count.” Who cares if you’re running out of space on your shelf? You can squeeze a few more in there.
4. This. Like fight me, but books are one of the greatest forms of entertainment to exist?? Easily portable, no wifi or cables needed. (Unless you want to use an e-reader or audiobooks which are also great accessible options!) A lot of people I know who say they don’t like reading are TV shows and movie fans, so I don’t understand why they wouldn’t like books too? They are very similar except they play in your mind! With all this content living “rent-free” in our minds nowadays, I promise books are not that different. I know a lot of people’s dislike for books may come from being forced to read in school but not all books are the same! There 100% is a book out there for you.
5. So this next post just called me out… When life gets crazy sometimes it can feel a lot easier to spend a few minutes scrolling on Twitter rather than picking up a book. This is something I have to work on because I know I could be getting more reading done if I opted to read a few pages before bed or during breakfast instead of going on my phone. Still, book slumps are real and sometimes going on book Twitter and other social media sites may help you find something new to read or excite you to read again!
6. The dreaded question: “What’s your favourite book of all time?” I wholeheartedly agree with this post. I have several favourite books but I am not sure if I would see some as “favourites” if I read them now. Still, they definitely hold a special place in my heart. Like this post says, some books just find you at the right time. I read The Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan at the start of high school which was a big transition, and a story about friendship and fun adventures was exactly what I needed.
Did any of these posts also make you go “that’s me”? Or do you have different thoughts about them? Let me know in the comments below!
