Hi, my name’s Alisha and I love reading.
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t have a book in my hand. When I was a little my dad used to help me read, to the extent that I picked up my first book before I even started school. It was The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien and to this very day it’s still my favourite book.
I was that weird kid, the one who had a dozen books in her bag, and who stayed up late reading. Who would rather spend time at the library than with other kids her age. But I don’t care really, it’s made me the person that I am today.
Up until I started blogging in 2014 I only had two bookshelves. Actually, I didn’t have any bookshelves. They were either piled on the floor in the corner or on top of my wardrobe. In my first few months of blogging I purchased two bookcases. They were tiny but they housed some of my books. Since then i’ve gotten rid of one and gained five new ones. Basically my room is now a mini library and I love that.
Since 2014 my book collection has grown and I feel like i’ve grown as a reader. I started out blogging on blogspot, releasing various thoughts and feelings about the different books that i’d read to the small number of people who wanted to listen, but from September 2016 I decided to switch to wordpress.
Reading truly has moulded my life to the shape that it is today and I couldn’t be happier how it turned out.
