Messy Confession 6 – “Books”


**TRIGGER WARNING** If you are triggered by books, what the heck are you doing on my site? 😉 This one is about some serious issues though that I have had with books and feeling allowed to read, so if you have suffered abuse this could be triggering. I don’t think it will be, but I am not in everyone’s body, so I will not assume to know that someone won’t be triggered by this video!

Music at the beginning of video is from freemusicarchive.org and is entitled “Reader! Do you read?” by Chris Zabriskie.

    My high school was the same as yours. We read maybe 5 classics all 4 years. I haven’t read Lord of the Flies either. I used to LOVE Fear Street!! R.L. Stine was the best! I never read Sweet Valley High but I used to love The Babysitter’s Club books.
    Cassie, oh my god, my heart!! You are making me cry! 😭 I am so thankful that I met you and have gotten to know you! You are such an inspiration for me and I am so thankful for our friendship! I love you! ❤️❤️❤️

      R.L. Stine is still one of my favorite authors because it was just about fun and enjoyment in reading for me with those books. Do you remember your favorite babysitter? Mine was junior member Mallory Pike! I love you to bits! I am thankful to have met you as well!

      I think that my love of reading comes from it being denied to me, so I am glad I am where I am with it. I don’t think that I would have ever started a book blog and I would have never met you, so I think it all worked out in the end! Love you to bits and I am glad you finished THE ONE 😉

    I didn’t read many classics as a child. I tried to read Little Women but it was difficult even though my reading was above average I still think some classics children’s books are probably not for children. I tried reading The Lord of the flies a few years ago but coukdn’t get into it I loved Goosebumps and horror books and whatever was in my library. I love blogging and sharing my views and connecting with other readers. I know so few people offline who read.

      I also don’t know very many people offline that read. It has been heart-warming to find others that enjoy reading! I agree with you so strongly that some children’s books seem to be written for a different audience than the original intended audience, but it could also be that times have changed and the level of reading comprehension may have changed? I am not sure. Thank you for commenting!

    Damn I don’t get to watch as many videos of yours. I read as many posts as I can during my commute but can’t say the same for watching videos. But I finally found time to hear this out.

    I started reading while I was quite young even before we had compulsory reading in school. So when the time finally came I had already read most of them (from my sibling and cousins’ shelves) and Yes I have been an overachiever since then.

      You are lucky that you got the opportunity to read when you were young! Hold that dear to your heart. Thank you for listening to my videos. I appreciate it greatly!
