Literary Influences

From giving us a memorable laugh to giving us the motivation to continue living our lives, what we read has a profound impact on our minds, souls, and hearts. These are blogs written about pieces of literature that have had a considerable effect on me.

“To Narnia and the North!”

The Horse and His Boy from C.S. Lewis’ series The Chronicles of Narnia has been one of my favorite books for years, helping me to discover my own agency as a woman and giving me hope that I would eventually “find my way” through the turbulence of early adolescence.

Why I Want To Be A Shadowhunter

The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare gave me an opportunity to explore the hidden depths and potential of my personal talents, power, and courage.

The Status Effect That Never Healed

Mari Mancusi’s young-adult novel Gamer Girl was one of the crutches that helped me trudge through a bout with depression.

“Roads Go Ever Ever On…”

Along with introducing me to the world of Middle-earth, J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit gave me a wonderful fantasy to escape into and inspired me to look for the fantastical in our own world, even if that means adventuring a bit out of my comfort zone.
