Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted on The Broke and Bookish about the top ten of almost anything book related. I thought it was a great idea and decided to join in on the fun!

This week's topic is a Top Ten Tuesday Rewind. I chose to do Top Ten Reasons Why I Read, which I'm not sure was ever a topic but if it wasn't it should be.  

Top 10 Reasons Why I Read

1) I'm a dreamer. I yearn for more adventure, more excitement, more connection in my life and books give that to me.

2) I love to imagine. Because of this I can easily relate to other characters and their problems and this is the reason why books are vortexes that suck me in.

3) Books are relaxing. After a hard, stressful day I need something to do that calms me down and I find that something in reading.

4) I need an escape. Somethimes real life gets to be too much and what better way to let go of it all than to read about the Quidditch World Cup?

5) Life can get boring. On long car rides or road trips or even when sick in bed with nothing to do, books are the perfet medicine.

6) Books teach me that I can survive. My domain genre is ya and the characters often  deal with issues such as abuse or bullying. When I read ya and see that they can deal with and escape this I realize that it is possible. That people aren't worthless because others say they are; that everyone is deserving of a good life and a good friend; that, in the end, anything is possible.

7) I want become a published author. Reading published books is the perfect way for me to become a better writer.

8) Part of why I love reading so much can't be described. It's because of something inside me,some innate need a have, some void that is filled when I read. Reading makes me content and I can't exactly explain why. Reading is something I'm passionate about and everyone needs a little passion in their lives.

9) Book characters are the best! The books I read often have loyal, trustworthy best friends or supporting boyfriends. I read about heroines who are tough physically and save the day or even mentally and survive heartbreaking issues. I read because, honestly, who doesn't love a kick-ass heroine.

10) I want to travel. I would love to visit Alaska, Lonon, Paris, Egypt, Japan, New Zealand, or Brazil. With books I can journey all over the world. In fact, by reading I can visit nonexistent places too such as Hogwarts or underground resorts or parrellel realities.
