I don’t like introductions
Which is probably not a good way to introduce myself,
but it must be said for—I really could care less for them
I’d rather hear about someone’s favorite book
or their favorite book to movie adaptation
(which was better?)
So here’s my favorite book,
besides Harry Potter
It’s The Darkest Part of the Forest by Holly Black
No, it’s not perfect. Yeah, the ending could have been better
But it was one
of the first books I discovered
Entranced by the cover and premise,
I was more than ready to dive into the deliciously dark
story of a girl who vowed to save the world
but forgot herself.
There’s just something about
stories with forests and magic
that I can’t help but adore
like The Raven Cycle
or Uprooted and The Bear and the Nightingale,
You get the idea.
I have a soft spot for fantasy, fairytales,
Hereos and heroines
Monsters and villains.
What can I say
What about you?
What do you like to read into the late hours of dawn?
What kinds of books do you start and finish in one sitting,
that linger in your mind
still to this day,
all about it.
Hello my name is Cherry and when I was in middle school I kept a notebook for writing poems about anything and everything. I'm not sure when I stopped writing poetry and I can't say I was ever actually any good at it, but it was fun nonetheless. This post in particular was a bit of an accident. I decided to keep it though in case anyone else might like it too. If you'd like to read my actual introduction post, check it out here:
