Today we have the person behind the wonderful blog that is the stylish dreamer. She is sharing her experience with books!

 Hello, Everyone!

I’m the Stylish Dreamer and I’m super excited to be guest posting ( for the first time!) at Closet Readers Blog! A huge thank you to them for letting me guest post, I think that we can all agree that they are AMAZING bloggers! Not to mention funny and talented.

This post is all about BOOKS! Books and books and more books… books galore! There’s just so many of them and so little time, right?
If you show your blog a little bit of love, it will grow (5).pngEver since I was little I have LOVED to read. The smell and just the feel of books always made me happy. Going to the library was one of my favorite things to do and I cannot imagine life without books.

And now I can proudly say that I’m addicted to reading.

I love to read. Books are a major part of my life they have always been and will always be. Just the thought of buying a new book or going to the bookshop gets me super excited and then reading then buying them and taking them home and slowly taking out the book from the bag and reading the first page and just getting enveloped into the story is definitely the best part. Also, the amazing smell of new books is just…


That’s literally the only word that I can think of that describes it. In fact, the first thing I do when I get a new book is to sniff it and let the wonderful smell soothe my soul. I am not even kidding when I say that someone should bottle up that scent and call it Eau De Bookworm because I would definitely be first in line to buy one of those.

just be yourself via your writing. (1).png

I don’t think books are just stories, some books are kind of like your personal friends. They make you cry at the sweet or sad bits and when you are sad, a good makes you feel much better. About yourself and about everyone else. You know you have read an AMAZING book when you cry or when you laugh or loud or scream and dance around giddily because something amazing happened.

if-you-show-your-blog-a-little-bit-of-love-it-will-grow-2Reading an amazing book could potentially change your life for the better, books help us find ourselves ( as cliché as that sounds, it’s true) They help you discover what type of person you really are and best of all:

You get transported from your bedroom to different worlds and the worlds of different people in different places and I think that is just magical.


You never know what a good book (especially with some chocolate ) can do!

Keep dreaming!

  1. Eau de Bookworm sounds like a wonderful idea! I guess I would be second in line to buy it since The Stylish Dreamer is first haha
    I agree with everything she said about reading. It really is the best experience to just read a story and jump into whatever world you’re reading about. Books are like the wardrobe to Narnia, open it and you’ll end up somewhere else 🙂
    Great post!
