One of the main things that I am thankful for this year, as well as previous years, is books- specifically of the fantasy genre. I have enjoyed reading immensely since I was a child, but recently it has become very important to me. With all the stressors of high school and the situation of the world, books have become an escape for me. When I read, all of my problems seem to disappear temporarily. This is why I particularly enjoy fantasy books- it allows me to escape to a world that I can not physically experience but can still connect to characters, settings, and plots. During the summer, I consumed a ton of books, and it helped me cope with the struggles I was experiencing. The feeling of loving a new book and wanting to know what happens next is one of the best ever. When I have free time, which is rare, reading is still the first thing that comes to mind, and I am so grateful for it.
