But then I discovered V.C Andrews when I was 14 and started devouring her books. Remember the editions with the window in the cover…My favourite…and she wrote naughty stuff (I was feeling so grown up reading her books!)
I have devoured over 350 ebooks since I read the FSOG trilogy.
I started writing mini reviews on Amazon, my little thank you to the authors. Each book I read woke a part me up that I had either long forgotten or hidden away. Not only did reading become my little piece of heaven, an entertainment source for my mind, but every book I have read has had a new key that unlocks a part of my soul, some locks never been opened and others that I locked years ago through some heartache or loss! The Universe seems to always know which book I need to read next, whether it be a favourite authors new book, a genre specific book or just some random book I have discovered or has been given to me to read. Each book comes to me a time when I truly need to read them, each book has a topic or character that resonates with me or enlightens me at time when I need them most. Yes they are 99% fictional but each book carries a message that helps me grow as a person, each book touches my soul in a way that I have spent many years ignoring. So to all the beautiful authors I have crossed paths with, read your books or befriended, from the very bottom of my heart, Thank you! You are my therapy to becoming a person that is beginning to feel whole again!
Read People, read frivolously, read like your life depends on it….READ BECAUSE YOU CAN!
