Attitude Towards Books + Reading in the Book Blogging Community | Right or Wrong?

Hello everyone, I know it’s been a long time since I properly posted, and my only answer to you is that A Levels have hit me like a bag of bricks and I am reeling. The fact that I am currently writing does not mean that I should be because I have 3 different tests to revise for but let’s not get into that. This subject is something that has been playing on my mind for quite some time, and is also part of the reason as to why I have been so absent.

Ever since I read Anne of Green Gables (which was when I was 11) I have been all over classics. I went through an entire phase where I only read classics (namely ones that are child-friendly such as The Secret Garden or Little Women or Treasure Island) whether they were the famous ones or the lesser-known ones (by Louisa May Alcott, Susan Coolidge) – I’m not saying I’ve read all the classics ever but I’ve read a great deal.
