About five years ago while I was attending high school in the ninth grade, my teacher really exerted my classmates and I into reading novels, short stories and chapter books. We read books such as, Tuck Everlasting, The Outsiders and Frederick Douglas. Until this day, out of every book I have ever read in my so far, so short life time; The Outsiders was my all time favorite. The setting in this story was mostly the streets, hang out spots and night life areas. There were two groups which were the Greasers and the Socs.
I am twenty-one years old with a book obsession that would put even the most passionate of librarians into shock. I have a passion for the arts and literature and enjoy creating colorful pieces of art for my home for others to admire and enjoy. My interests are quite varied and range from enjoying foreign movies to attempting to cook new recipes. As a young child I have always felt a passion for fiction writing that compelled me to write. While most children played outside I would lock myself in the room and type hundreds of pages pulled from my thirteen year old imagination.
In elementary all throughout middle school, I detested all sorts of reading. I use to think that reading was for boring individuals that liked to read for fun. Once I attended high school, I discovered movies that were based on novels, not wanting to wait for the second movie to come out I decided to read all of the books in the series and was instantly hooked. I read all of the series that were popular at the time such as The Hunger Games, Twilight, The Maze Runner, and Harry Potter. Once reading all the popular series, I slowly transitioned to romantic and non-fiction genres.

I loved everything about it from the storyline, to the characters, to the ending. But as I read it again when I’m older, I realize many different things that I had not noticed when I was a
The words are bound to my memory forever, “Now I lay my head down to sleep, I pray the lord my soul to keep…” A small gospel tale read to me by my grandmother for my first years of life is my first recollection of loving books in my life. Though I can no longer recall the name of this gospel story that I demanded my grandmother read to me every time I spent the night at her house, I do remember how this book began my walk with Christ and my love for reading. Throughout my almost eighteen years of life I have read a lot of books ranging from nursery rhymes to great works of literature such as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
