I did this last year (click HERE to read the first one, or just search "30 Days of Gratitude" in the search box) so I'm going to do something a little different this year. I'm going to write about something I'm grateful for every day for 30 days, but I can't repeat anything I said the last year. :) Shouldn't be too hard.
Today I'm grateful for . . . Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. It’s such a simple, sweet, heartbreaking book that’s very
character-driven (my favorite kind). You feel so much for these
characters that you’re almost surprised to find that they’re fictional.
You get so attached to them that they’re almost like your best friends,
no, family. I finished it wishing I hadn’t, because I couldn’t ever read
that book again for the first time.

30 Days of Gratitude--Day 1
I am a 17-year-old homeschooler, author, daydreamer, voracious reader, introvert, feminist, klutz, fangirl, and overuser of tape. I love the impossible (which might explain my obsessions with fantasy novels and Harry Potter) but I dip into the real world . . . occasionally. I tend to get overly emotional over my OTPs and eat sushi or listen to Taylor Swift to soothe the pain. If all else fails, reruns of “Doctor Who” or “Supernatural” is sure to help. I’m a big fan of mismatched socks, Cheez-Its, and bittersweet endings. I believe anything Rainbow Rowell, Felicia Day, or Lin-Manuel Miranda touches turns to gold. If you want to win the way to my heart, help me adopt a baby elephant. Or a llama. Or both. I write to survive and will often yell at my characters if they aren’t behaving, which is always. It doesn’t usually help. I am a contributor to the "Fauxpocalypse" anthology. You can follow me on Twitter at @Magic_Violinist.
