My name is Opal and I collect, reading, and hoard books. I get made fun of all the time by my family and friends about it but I have come to terms with my condition, that I am a bibliophile. I take pride in the name with no shame and I full support people who just like me. Now I wasn’t always a book lover, I actually didn’t start reading until I was 13 years old and the first book I read was If You Come Softly by Jacquline Woodson and that’s when I realized I hated reading. It wasn’t until I read Harry Potter in 2004 that I noticed reading wasn’t so bad and that there are different genres out there for everyone to love. In 2003, I read the Twilight series and the Mortal Instruments series and I officially became a book lover. I have ventured to other genres such as New Adult and Romance but I mainly stick to YA.
