Hey, friends. It’s this blog’s 3rd anniversary, and finally, I’ve got a post for you. I don’t even know what to call this kind of post. Emotional? Informational? Spontaneous? Unexpected? Really, it’s all of the above.
POV: In a sea of internet people who read 100s of books per year, you have finally stumbled upon me, who recently forced myself to read 50 books over the past two years.
Don’t get me wrong, 50 books in one year is still a lot! I’m giving myself a pat on the back as we speak. But as I was asked to input a new Goodreads challenge for 2021, I decided to lower my standards by a lot, and I went for it.
I only signed up to read 25 books this year.
Contrary to the title, I would not go as far as creating an actual streaming service! Do you know how much work that would require?
I would probably need money. And people. And connections. All of which I do not have yet.
No, I actually did this for a college project! This project was submitted at the beginning of May 2020, but 😅 I kept putting off this post until now!
I don't know about you, but July was exhausting for me. I've never written this much in my life. Is this close to what it's like to be a full time writer? 🥺 It's definitely so hard. I don't think we give authors enough credit.
I remember the exact moment I finished Percy Jackson and the Olympians. I remember precisely where I was, how I felt, and what kinds of emotions I was going through. Reading that series over the course of a month was one of the highlights of my time as a young reader, and I don’t think I’ll ever forget how special those moments of reading were to me. With all the news about Percy Jackson being adapted by Disney+, this got me thinking… how much can a favorite series impact us, and why?
