The first time I picked up a book and read it willingly was back when I was around 12 or 13 and never in a million years did I imagine that book would turn me into the reader I am today. I was always that kid that complained about reading assignments and my favorite subject use to be math. Then it all changed.
My friends asked me to go to the movies with them and I was really excited because I had never been to the movies in this country before. We went to see Breaking Dawn Part 1. Now, I had never even heard of Twilight before that night so you can understand how lost I was watching all those vampires and werewolves but it really caught my attention. So after the movie I wanted to find out more about it (I had so many questions) So I asked my friend and she told me there was a book. However, she didn’t specify there were four books or their order but when I went to the library and I said wanted to borrow Twilight and they obviously gave me the first one. Thanks to that I figured out there were four books and etc. Once I started reading it I couldn’t stop. It blew me away how I could feel so many emotions just from reading or where my imagination could take me.
When I finished Twilight I read New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn, watched all the movies and became a huge Twihard. I was obsessed, there were posters all around my room (Team Edward all the way), had a bunch of collectibles, and reread/re-watched all the books/movies a million times.
While I’m not as obsessed as before, Twilight still holds a big place in my heart (and my bookshelf). I actually reread Breaking Dawn last month and I’ve been craving to watch all the movies again. I’ll always defend it (a lot of people have bad opinions about it) and it’ll always be one of my favorites.
And so that’s how I got into reading and now I’ll never stop! After I read Twilight I started reading a lot of Twilight fanfictions because I didn’t think I would like to read anything else but then I gave Harry Potter a chance and realized I just love reading and the way it makes me feel. Since then reading is my number one hobby and I don’t think that’ll ever change.
Anyways thanks for reading and let me know you guys got into reading!
