¬°Hola! I have a bit of a spontaneous post, but it is about something that has been on my mind a lot lately. I’ve been wanting to write on this topic for a while, and I think it’s a nice break from the reviews (although one should be up pretty soon). 

Books changed my life. Trying to imagine a world where I do not read is like trying to imagine a world where I do not eat. Probably the best piece of inspiration I’ve received is from a book by Michelle Phan. She spends a great deal of time making sure her fans are following their true passions. Finally, after listening to Michelle, I realized that everyone does have a passion and sometimes it takes a while to find. But out of everything in your lifetime, the most important thing is to make sure that you are pursuing your passion. And that is exactly what I am doing, thanks to Michelle Phan.

Patience, love, education, adventure, bravery, magic, mystery, self-confidence, knowledge, personality, sacrifice. 

This doesn’t even take up a fraction of the list of lessons you can take from any story. A tale woven with those elements is one you’ll never forget. If you think books are boring, consider rethinking. Every author has created something precious, regardless of what the cover looks like. What’s on those pages could really surprise you. A bad author could make an amazing story. An amazing author could make a bad story. 

Book covers can attract us, sure, or they can make us crinkle our noses. And believe me, I strongly think it’s up to the author to make sure she/he has an attractive cover if they want readers, but I also think it’s the responsibility of the reader to pick up a book they have an interest in regardless of appearance. You never know what you may find. The best book out there could be disguised by an ugly cover. 

Stories jam packed with action and romance and friendship can “kill” you in the metaphorical sense (if you’re a huge fangirl and you “can’t even” take your OTP), but they can also bring you back to life. Getting lost in another world is the perfect distraction. I found that out at a young age, and I haven’t gotten any less attached to that feeling. 

That said, I wanted to tell you guys why I’m so excited! Victoria Aveyard, author of Red Queen, is coming out with two novellas tomorrow related to the story! Glass Sword is also coming out mid-February. 

It must be the prime time for new books, because I’m also anticipating Sarah J. Maas’s release of A Court of Mist and Fury. 

I know I’ve mentioned in my Christmas list the book Let it Snow by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. Well, if you’ve read it, there’s some good news for you. They’re making a movie!

Some other movies-based-on-books in the making:

Miss Peregrine’s School for Peculiar Chidren

Before I Fall

The 5th Wave


Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Okay, this one isn’t based on a book, but it kind of is! This film trilogy is going to take place in the world J.K Rowling created in her Harry Potter series. As a huge HP fan, you gotta know how excited I am for that!

Anyways, thank you for reading my crazy thoughts and fangirling! Check back soon for a review.
