My thoughts May
I asked you in the previous post to guess my first book that set me reading. Well that is the topic of today’s post.
No one guessed it right and I expected that because this might come as a shock.
My first book was……
Yes. Twilight. And I am not ashamed of that. I loved twilight when I read it and though it took me a week to finish it, I couldn’t have imagined it being any better.
Maybe it was just the experience of reading a novel for first time that was good or maybe I did find the story interesting but after Twilight I went into the Vampire phase. I finished Twilight series, The vampire diaries by L J Smith, Vampire academy series, The southern Vampire mysteries, House of the night series and any vampire book I could get my hands on. I thought that those were the only books I would like.
How wrong I was!
I started experimenting with other books. Some that had Vampires in them but other creatures too like Shadow fall series. And then my friend lend me a book.
A thousand splendid suns by Khaleid Hosseini
This book blew my mind and changed me in ways I can’t explain. It was beautiful and heartbreaking, touching and just brilliant. And there started my journey to reading genres other than paranormal. And my vampire phase ended.
