Since “Inspiration” is (or should) the theme this week … what is your reading inspired by?
What is my reading inspired by? Um...everything. I don't know! This year, I'm reading a lot of books that are well known and which have received a plethora of good reviews thus far as well as some lesser known YA novels. Sometimes I read books off of suggestions from my teachers or for school assignments. So I find books to read from school/friends/reviews/other bloggers.
My reading itself is inspired by my curiosity. I learned to read when I was pretty young and I always enjoyed getting lost in my Dr. Seuss. Since then, I've progressed towards bigger and better novels until I'm where I am now. I love being able to learn something new from what I read, whether that be a new perspective, new pop culture references, or new little factoids. I also enjoy getting lost in books. It's fun to be branded as a bookworm, I think. I embrace it. I've been told I'm "smarter than I look" (think about that for a while) so I'm totally fine with being a little nerdy, glasses and all, so I can make myself look a little more intelligent. So I guess my reading itself is inspired by learning and being able to delve into a new world. And also maybe redeeming myself, smarts-wise. You know, showing that I'm not that dumb blonde. :P
