Sometimes, A Book Calls to Me

I bought a book recently that I was planning on reading after I’d finished working my way through this graphic novel.

It’s Gareth Malone’s Choir and I was excited to learn more about what went into the television series “The Choir”

But I didn’t want to start this book until I finished this one that I was going to review for the blog.

It’s called Bully in the Mirror and from teenaged author Shanaya Fastje. I’m halfway through it now and hope to have it finished soon.

I”d also started this book over the Christmas Holidays . . .

But then I saw other books that I wanted to read and put it aside . . . just for a little while. I fully planned to get back to reading it. Honest!

Then last week when I was at the library, I picked up this title.

Tony Hawk is an amazing athlete and has managed to expand his empire to many other things. He’s done more for skateboarding than any other skater in history. So this book definitely called to me. I had to pick it up.

This book moved up to the “Read Next” position since I own Choir and could read it at my leisure. Library books need to be read within three weeks.

So with all of these books pretty much waiting for me, I had no plans to pick up another one when I was at the library this weekend.

But then this book called to me.

The title of it caught my attention right away. When I opened the front cover and read the summary, I knew I had to get this book.

It’s about a girl named Emily March who mysteriously gets transported into the classic Little Women novel. She’s a middle sister in her actual family and now the middle sister in this fictional one.

When I got home, I immediately began reading it and didn’t want to put it down.

This book is now on the top of my list. Hopefully I can whip through it quickly, and it looks like I can. After that, I’ll get back to tackling the rest of the books in this list.

Has a book ever called out to you and you just had to put everything aside to read it?
