I’ve noticed something changing about myself recently and that is my love for reading. I have never been a big reader of books at all, in fact I could probably tell you how many books I’ve read in my life time. I would start one, get a few pages in and then lose all interest. I’m going to be completely honest I didn’t even read my whole comparative novel for leaving cert English… oops. I’ve always loved reading magazines, blogs, anything online but books were just not for me.
I bought Zoe Sugg’s book Girl Online months back, in December I think, but I never got around to picking it up. With loads going on in my life along with exams on top of that although I really wanted to read it I could never find the chance. Last week I was babysitting my cousins and decided that while they were in bed I would start reading it and for the next 5 days I literally couldn’t put it down! I don’t know if its because I’m now finished school and don’t have piles and piles of books staring at me 24/7 that I have no option to look at but my view is different now. I have never in my life read a book as fast as I read Girl Online. I got completely hooked with the story and grew attachments to the characters. For one of the first times in my life I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed picking up a book and reading it. It may be a phase or a new view on things I don’t know but I’m loving it. I even spent some of tonight searching my house for a particular book that I bought a couple of years ago and never got around to finishing (no surprise there). The search was unsuccessful but I’ll try again tomorrow.
