Something I fear being is narrow-minded… in any situation. I never want to be a person that limits herself to just one type of thing, be it as superficial as food or as deep as the type of friends I keep. This desire to be adventurous and to see new things has also bled into my reading life.
One of my favorite things to do is pick a random book off the bookstore shelf and buy it before I’ve hardly skimmed the summary. This has forced me to delve into new genres that I never would’ve considered exploring on my own… and I’ve found some beautiful works of writing because of it. And now I want to share them with you.
