Today, I have my newest good friend on the blog Ambur from Burning x Impossibly x Bright. Ambur is a fellow Edmonton Book Blogger and we first met at the Smart Chicks Kick It Tour, we have become instant friends and I am glad to have Ambur as a friend and have someone to gush over Cassandra Clare’s novels with. Ambur is also joining me on my adventure to the Calgary Expo where we will get to fan girl over Darryl (The Walking Dead), Tyrion (Game of Thrones) and Draco Malfoy!!!
So I asked Ambur the following question and this was her answer.
What made you start reading?
I was always a reader as a child, but I didn’t read nearly as often as I do now. I had a bookshelf with a small collection of books, and would read them every once in a while. It wasn’t until senior high school that I went from reading casually to reading prolifically….and you know what? I have Twilight to thank for that. You see, I actually started reading again when a group of us at school started reading the Twilight Saga and we would all talk about it between classes. I devoured the saga in about a week, and reread a couple times in a row. After that, I just kept on reading. I found City of Bones and The Mortal Instruments (back then it was trilogy :P) right after Twilight, and it was definitely one of the series that prompted me to keep finding more books. The main reason I kept on reading was because it offered a mental escape where I didn’t have to think about school and I was able to relax and let myself just enjoy the words on the page. I still read as an escape and to relax…and if I haven’t read for a while, well I can get a little grouchy. :P
Thanks Ambur for answering my question. That how much love of reading started as well. It’s like we are book soulmates! hehe
Make sure you visit Ambur. I swear her blog is full of awesome.
