After spending a lot of time finding quotes to try and inspire the official name of my blog, I gathered a few of my favorite quotes about books and writing to share. Hopefully these quotes can remind you why you wanted to be a writer like they did for me.
This last one is my absolute favorite because it perfectly captures how I feel about the magic words can hold.
Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
My Favorite Books
The Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale
Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan
The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
My name is Alyson and I love words. I love to read them, I love to write them. Words have the power to change our lives, for better or worse I hope to be the kind of author who uses words to inspire others and change lives for the better. My goal as an author is to change the way people view the world, but most importantly to improve the way we look at ourselves. As someone who struggled with self-esteem my entire life, books were my solace. The words contained in what I read influenced how I treated myself and those around me. I hope to be the author who helps just one other person who struggled like I did.
