Show Gratitude and Win 19 Signed YA Books

There are so many great books out there that I absolutely love and I am thankful for each and every one of them. However, the one book that I am most grateful for is Twilight by Stephenie Meyer because it completely changed my life around. I discovered this book by accident during the summer of 2007. I rarely read on my own outside of school but, I stayed up all night long reading Twilight. Ever since that night, I discovered a new passion for reading and I now carry books with me wherever I go. I never knew that a book was capable of making you smile, laugh, and even cry. I was going through a lot of personal stuff at the time when I discovered just how much a book can help you escape. A break from reality was just what I needed and Twilight helped take me away and into an exciting world. This book is how I made it through high school and every single bad day I encountered. I could just pick up this book and completely lose myself in the story and the characters. I also never realized that it was possible to connect to a character as much as I was able to relate to Bella. I still go back and reread the book quite often because it brings me a sense of comfort all over again. Twilight is the book that led me to find a new love and appreciation for reading. It has also ultimately led me to pursue a degree in English.  

What book are you grateful for?

  1. I said just about the same thing! Twilight made me start loving YA...without it I wouldn't even probably have a blog or read any of it. :)
