Books.

 I love to read. It sounds so cheesy but it’s true. Growing up, I hated reading with a passion. It was probably because we always had to read out loud and in front of everybody in the classroom. I was considered one of those students that stumbles on her words most of the time and is a pretty slow reader. I hated reading out loud just as much as I hated our teachers for making the others like myself read out loud, because you knew everybody including the teacher hated you at that time of the day. You should have seen me trying to read Shakespeare. Lol

When I was a freshman in high school. My English teacher, with whom I had twice in the mornings. He had told his class at the beginning of the semester that on Friday’s we would be reading all period long and if we didn’t have anything to read, we would have to go to his small bookshelf to find something to occupy ourselves and we were not allowed to fall asleep either. So after that kind of warning and the first week, I actually got into reading because it was the only time where we were allowed to read to ourselves. The first book I found and actually remember reading in that class was, The Royal Diaries: Nzingha – Warrior Queen of Matamba, Angola, Africa 1595 by Patricia C. McKissack. It’s been seven years since my freshman year and I have tried to rack my brain about the other books I’ve read in that time frame.

While I was a junior in high school, I took a class called, Novels and it was probably one of the best classes I’ve ever took in school. I remember wishing it lasted all day long because it was a semester long book club meeting. We would read a book for a month and after reading it at night, our teacher would talk about it with us and we would give our thoughts about it as well. The first book and the last book we read were, Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and Helter Skelter: The True Story of the Manson Murders by Vincent Bugliosi and Curt Gentry. I think we read about five or six books that semester.

It’s been a few years since I’ve graduated and I’ve read countless books and I’ve wanted more. I think I like biographies and erotica, I love celebrity memoirs and rockstar romance books. I like history influenced books and plus, teen fiction as well. The only subjects I don’t like are mystery (which surprises me!) and sci-fi books.
