Hello there, daydream believers!
I got to guest post over on the Nerdy Book Club yesterday about the books that made me brave and the lion who makes me want to roar. Here's the link, if you'd like to take a gander:
One of my favorite conversations to have with other booklovers has to do with *the* book. The book that came along when you needed it. The book you swear was written just for you. Maybe Harry was ignored in the cupboard under the stairs at the same time you were ignored in the corner of the cafeteria. Maybe Mia Thermapolos figured out she was royalty around the same time you figured out how to use your voice. Maybe Speak gave you permission to scream. Maybe Where the Wild Things are brought out the wild animal in you. Taught you life was a wild rumpus and you shouldn't let it pass you by. Or perhaps you're a King or Queen of Narnia, too. Maybe you know what it feels like when the roar of a lion rattle your bones a little bit.
Is there a novel that helped you get through a tough situation? A book you read when you were younger that you have never, ever forgotten? Or is there a book that makes you feel in ways you can't describe? I would love to hear about some of your favorite books down in the comments!
I'm going to grab my coffee now and go back to work. Please send snacks. And pictures of cute animals. (Cute animals = puppies, kittens, otters, Hugh Jackman, etc.)
