Giving out book recommendations. We all do it. We are proud to read a book, love it, then
force recommend our book to our minions friends. Some of us book lovers actually have some friends that we can communicate about our favorite books. I have about 5 that I can communicate with offline. Yet I give recommendations to EVERYONE, and I mean EVERYONE. Book Lover. check. Random Citizen. check. Teachers. check. EVERYONE. Yet I am truly interested about talking about my favorite books if you’re interested as well. For example, my friends think that I am a gigantic weirdo. Adding obsessing over fictional stories and characters makes them think that I am just weird with a capital WEIRD. But they still try to get into my love for reading. There is this one book that I recommend to everyone. Usually I go based on the person’s like or interest but the one book that I recommend to absolutely everyone is Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. One of my favorite books EVER! This book is filled with fun, action, romance. A little bit of everything for everyone. Naturally making this book the book that I recommend to everyone. So the people ask for a recommendation I tell them Obsidian…a few weeks later I ask them if they are enjoying the book. “What book?” “OBSIDIAN THE ONE THAT I TOLD YOU TO READ WEEKS AGO!” “Oh that one yeah I haven’t gone around to buy it just yet” You haven’t gone around to buy it just yet. What?! So that’s one of my problems with recommending books. Another thing. Some of my friends that do enjoy books don’t really read in the same genre as me. They might be into historical fiction, classics, and sometimes they are into YA. “Have you read *insert VERY popular YA book title* yet” I ask them. There is some mixed answers when it comes to this question. Some might say yes while others might say no. For the people that say no you can guess what I say to them “WHAT THE RAINBOW SKITTLES HOW CAN YOU HAVE NOT READ THIS AMAZING FANTASTICAL BOOK YET! READ IT READ IT READ IT READ IT. I AM DEMANDING YOU TO READ IT.” “okay” “NO ITS NOT OKAY YOU WILL READ THE BOOK SO WE CAN CRY, LAUGH, AND FANGIRL OVER IT” Meanwhile while I am doing my ranting I don’t see the other person backing away slowly from me. Yet I’m okay with it, it shows how much I am dedicated towards my loving books. So the next time that I recommend a book to someone you better give them earplugs.
