It can be difficult to find the ‘perfect’ book that just makes you want to keep reading forever but it isn’t impossible! Finding the perfect book can set you on a journey filled with books and reading which is an amazing thing. I like to think that everyone likes to read, but if they don’t it’s just because they haven’t found the right book to get them started. Which is why I made this post!
Step 1 to finding the perfect book:
Experiment. Maybe read a few chapters of a few books and get a feel for what genre you like. Some books I recommend for this stage is Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi and Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. These are just some amazing books that are easy to get into and get you hooked on reading!
Step 2 to find the perfect book:
Find the right place and time. Finding the right time and place to read is extremely important. For instance, I prefer and get most of my reading done at night because I am less distracted and can focus more on my book. The place I also prefer to read in is my bed or couch in my bedroom. All these things contribute to finding the perfect book.
Step 3 to finding the perfect book:
Read it. Now it is time to read the book! You have found a book to give a go, the perfect place, perfect time so now it is time to see if you like the book!
Step 4 to finding the perfect book:
Now, once you have read the book you decide whether or not you liked or disliked it, or maybe you just thought it was okay. If you didn’t love it, or at least really enjoy then repeat step 1 and pick another book! Don’t give up so easily, just keep trying to find the right book. Maybe even switch reading places or times. Just do whatever feels right.
Step 5 to finding the perfect book:
Talk about it. Hopefully by now you have read a book you really liked or hopefully love. One of the best things to do after you finish reading an amazing book is discuss it with other people who liked the book as well. There are 2 different ways to do this. If you have friends that read the same books as you you can talk about it with them or you can go onto the internet. Social media platforms like Twitter and Instagram and Goodreads are great place to discuss different fandoms with people!
