Books have always played a big part in my life; while others chose to go outside, I chose a new intriguing book. Books have been a dear friend to me providing the escapism to console myself no matter what life may have thrown at me; so here are just a few of my life-changing books.
Diary Of A Wimpy Kid // Jeff Kinney
I guess you could say I was a late developer on the literature front. Cringeworthy as it may be, I am not ashamed to admit that this was the first book I ever read at the tender age of 10. The novel, if you can deign to call it that, is about a boy called Greg and his supposedly ‘hilarious’ endeavours into becoming popular. I think the reason why this book played an important role in my literary life journey is because it was so derivative and basically written that it inspired me to better books. When I say ‘derivative’ I mean it is a slightly worse copy of ‘The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole,’ and that’s saying something! Nevertheless, I would like to personally thank Jeff Kinney for first being able to get me into the world of literature.
