This page is an addition to my plentiful story, I loved reading books and it really hard a strong hold on me when parents naturally censored TV shows and music. I instead used books to learn about all the things they were shielding me from. Relationships, violence, sex and other PG16 things.
Some of you are like:
You: Really? rebelling with books?
Me: YES honey, you name it!
In Zambia, the internet was not accessible in family homes and I knew nothing about the internet until I came to the US. Here I understood what emails and social media was. You, in developed countries were raving about Myspace by then. Any who, I read it all, everything I could find.
From Harry Potter to HIV/AIDS prevention short stories handed to upperclassmen and college students (they had a lot of relationship drama. Trust me).
So because I still feel pretty passionate about reading and I have awesome book recommendations from friends. Why not do a quick fun segment were you learn of the books I loved to read and hopefully you also get excited to read them too.
It will force me to finish some books still waiting and make me feel well rounded. Join my book club, it will be a literary journey.
Thank you for reading!
