Prompt #2: Two Books that helped you fall in love with reading
I find it fitting that this prompt is starting right by Valentine’s Day. It’s almost as if I planned it that way. *wink**wink*
I’ve been reading since I was little. My mom heavily encouraged reading growing up and I remember our trips to the local library together. She’d always let me get two books for a dollar from the old ones they were selling.
As you may know, I made a Goals of 2019 post earlier this year. I had two blogging goals and two reading goals. I’m going to try breaking down these goals by month to help keep me on track.
Reading Goal: Finish 2 Books
So last month, I read The Poet X and Dear Martin. I finished them both before school started and I loved them. Since school has started up again, I haven’t had as much time to focus on a single book. I keep starting one and then stopping, then picking up a completely different book.
All this to say, I’m hoping to finish at least two books this month.
The main reason I’ve been able to keep posting while in school is because of the amazingness that is the scheduling tool. I’ve had at least six posts scheduled at any given time but lately, I’ve been too busy to create posts. I’m hoping to keep my page fresh with new posts this month.
I also want to keep up with the Two for Tuesday tag. Make sure to join if you’re interested.
Bookstagram Goal: Post 3X a Week
I’ve been slacking with my bookstagram for the past week or so. Truth be told, I need to take more pictures. I’m probably going to have another book photo shoot pretty soon. Make sure to follow my page on the sidebar.
Personal Goal: Keep Track of my Planner
I need to work on getting my life reorganized. I currently have four classes, two part-time jobs, and three organizations I’m part of at my University. I definitely need to make a few changes and get my life together.
It’s time for another recap. I caught this episode late but I still had to get this recap up for y’all. Make sure to check out the other recaps for the Premiere, Episode 3, Episode 4,Episode 5, and Episode 6 while you’re here.
For this first prompt, I’m throwing it back quite a bit. The first book I chose was March by John Lewis. It’s the book that taught me about the unsung heroes of the civil rights movement.
And the second one is a book I read sooo long ago. I was probably in elementary school or something but I remember loving it. I learned so much about World War II by reading Under the Blood Red Sun by Graham Salisbury.
