Hi Bookworms, I hope you had an amazing Book Lovers Day! This is our time!
I must say, I had a pretty spectacular Book Lovers Day; despite, the fact that I had some odd circumstances. I was stuck at the hospital for a test most of the day, but that made for some great reading time.
I read a hundred pages of my current read to celebrate this day. How can you not read on national Book Lovers Day? If you haven’t picked up a book today, stop everything, grab your favorite story, and clock a few minutes of uninterrupted reading time.
My Book Lovers Day only got better when I was grabbing coffee after my appointment. I discovered a message from Penguin UK Books on my Instagram. If any of you remember, a few weeks ago Penguin ran a photo contest using the hashtag #bestlovedbook. I posted a photo, link here, of my first favorite read: Little Women by Louisa May Alcott. I fell in love with the story when I was ten years old, even though it was a daunting five hundred pages. To my great surprise, Penguin Books decided my post was one of their favorites!
My photo, along with five others, can be seen on Penguin’s website. I am now happily awaiting my Penguin Books coffee mug, sent to me by the publishing house as a gift for posting the photo! Seriously people, posting for contests sometimes pays off. I’m over the moon about this news! I will definetly be showing off the mug when I recieve it.
For my final act in celebrating Book Lovers Day, I thought I would share my top ten favorite books with all you bookworms.
- The Outsiders
9.Go Ask Alice
8.The Opposite of Loneliness
5.We Were Liars
4. Little Women
3. The Little Prince
2. Catcher in the Rye
- Breakfast at Tiffanys
*** HARRY POTTER ***
Okay so Harry Potter sort of recieves it’s own special place. It can’t even be listed because I’m biased. However, my list of favorites is a mix of YA and Classic lit that I always go back to. I may even sneak in The Little Prince before I go to bed tonight, because it’s so short.
So, happy Book Lovers Day Bookworms! Hope it was a great one!
