I find it hard to find only one book I’m thankful for. There are so many books that had a huge impact on my life. Here is one series that really had a huge impact on my life, and for that, I’m extremely thankful.
The Harry Potter Series:
How can I not talk about this series? It had such a big impact on my life. It has been part of it since I was 9 years old (I’m now twenty). It made me enjoy reading so much more. It gave me a love to share with people, and a series to always be there to cheer me up when I’m down. I don’t know if I would be the reader I am today without J.K.Rowling’s series.
I have to end this post by saying that I’m thankful to books in general. I wouldn’t be the dreamer I am today without them, I wouldn’t feel as good about myself without them. I also probably wouldn’t be as happy as I am, because books always have been there to cheer me up when I was down.
I will always be thankful to authors who give teenagers a feeling of belonging through their books. Being a teenager, or even a child, doesn’t always feel easy. After, people can be so cruel sometimes. I strongly believe that books can save lives, as I believe any kind of art can.
This is why I am thankful to authors.
*I have to say that This Song Saved My Life by Simple Plan reminds me of books when I listen to it. I changed a couple of words to express how I believe that books save lives, as music does.
I wanna start letting you know this
Because of you my life has a purpose
You helped me be who I am today
I see myself in every word you write
Sometimes it feels like nobody gets me
Trapped in a world where everyone hates me
There's so much that I'm going through
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you
Sometimes I feel like you've known me forever
You always know how to make me feel better
Because of you my dad and me are so much closer
Than we used to be
You're my escape when I'm stuck
In this small town
I read you
Whenever I feel down
You let me know like no one else
That it's ok be myself
You'll never know
What it means to me
That I'm not alone
That I'll never have to be
