Words have always been a safe space for me. Since before I can even remember, I would find myself venting away with the help of a pen; pouring myself across each page. It’s always been a lot easier for me to express myself on paper than in person. Sometimes I feel as though I must write it all down in order to move past it. There’s just something about putting it down on paper that feels so final to me. In some in explainable way, it always felt like someone out there is listening. I think that’s what I’ve always admired about writers is their fearlessness behind each phrase. Their courage to show the world what the inside of their mind looks like. To stand up in a crowded room and scream at the top of their lungs. There’s this element of vulnerability about it that made me fall in love with literature at a young age. The simplicity of an idea and a pen, that brings me a feeling of contentment.
When I think of my all time favorite books, the ones that first come to mind are usually those that made me feel something; whether that be happy, sad, inspired, or a combination of all of those things. Make sure to check them out below, and I hope they bring you as much joy as they did for me xoxo
