The Joy of ReadingOct 18, 2022
This post was written by Sofia Noriega, a Ventura County high school student.
Buying my new books makes me feel
so happy as if I was watching a beautiful
sunset. Nothing compares to how you feel
while being so excited to read a new world
in the palm of your hands. Exploring new
worlds almost as if you're traveling without
leaving. The weight of all those feelings
and experiences all in a form of one. Makes
me stay up reading till one. Smelling the
delicious breakfast freshly made, oh no,
I stayed up too late.
I lay in my bed reading. My quiet space. A
place where I feel safe and cozy. The only
thing I hear are my thoughts and the way I
am picturing the plot of the story. I close my
book, taking a break to take in what I just
read. Can love really exist like that these
days? It is something I always imagined, but
is that really a realistic dream I am having?
At the end it is always a happily ever after,
but that’s just in fantasies. I would rather escape
this crazy world and escape into my world of
many special beginnings.
