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.
