As a regular book enthusiast, it is inevitable that you’re going to be aware of the constant new, upcoming releases that rise up in the book community. It may be a weird thing to think about but, do you ever find yourself reading a book or a series just because everyone else is reading it and you don’t want to feel left out? It’s kind of a book peer pressure if you think about it. Modern cult classics such as The Fault in Our Stars, The Hunger Games series, The Divergent Series, The Twilight Saga, and of course, Harry Potter seem to be series that everyone and their moms know about. So… does that mean you are obligated to read them? Of course not! Reading is supposed to be a relaxing and enjoyable activity that you do to let go of the stresses of the day. With that, let this be a reminder to you that you should read what you want, when you want to, and why you want to without explanation to anyone.

Let us know your thoughts! Happy Reading!
