Book – 14th April, 2020 (daily prompt)

Books have been my life for as long as I can remember. My mum told me that I started to read at the age of two. Books have surrounded my world ever since.

Many books hold special memories for me.

This is the book that my dad used to read to me and my sister when we were little. We had complained that he didn’t read enough to us, oblivious to his exhaustion from long days working, and mum bought this book for him to read to us. I can still see him sat there, I can hear his voice and the song of the page turning as he flicked it loudly to make us laugh.

When I was around 12 years old, we studied Shakespeare in English. I loved it that much that I asked my teacher for a Shakespeare book to read. She gave me this one from the library. I loved it. I’ve loved Shakespeare ever since and I have no doubts this book helped me on my path to taking an English degree and becoming an English teacher. And, in searching for an image of this book, I have just found and bought a copy from eBay.

Oh… My passion. I was recommended this book when I was 17. I fell in love with it and every book by Jane Austen. My favourite book, without a doubt.

Other favourites include:

Rebecca, Daphne du Maurier

Me before you, Jojo Moyes

You don’t have to say you love me, Sarra Manning

The Learning Curve, Melissa Nathan

Ps, I Love you, Cecelia Ahern

The Lovely Bones, Alice Sebold

Wild Magic, Tamora Pierce

One Day, David Nicholls

And about a million more.

  1. I love most of the books you’ve mentioned. Enid Blyton, Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Daphne Du Maurier, Cecilia Ahern – I love their books! I’m looking for my next read – any recommendations?
