More Information about You Give = We Give

What made me decide create You Give = We Give? 

The You Give = We Give event’s primary focus is placing a book into the hands of a stranger, into the hands of someone who may not be able to afford it or perhaps hasn’t got access to one. I want to brighten the smiles on as many faces every Christmas by placing a book into the hands of those in need, because developing a love of reading really does open many doors, whether that be writing their own story or becoming an illustrator or even becoming a reviewer like myself. A novel or picture book takes the reader into another word and has the ability to open someone’s eyes and spark a fire of brilliance into anyone’s imagination.

ENMITY BLOG TOUR - MARCH 29TH STOP


ENMITY BLOG TOUR - MARCH 29TH STOP

5 Reasons You Should Love Nate and Hermia

1. Nate’s Relatability

Nate is an incredibly relatable guy! His ‘guy-next-door’ trait is what makes it to so easy for all the other characters to unite under and respect. He becomes the leader, which illustrates how the everyday guy can turn around and become the hero, even if he didn’t know he had it in him.

2. Hermia’s Honesty

Being honest is confrontations, and it usually doesn’t lead to making friends easily. However, Hermia values honest opinions over friendships that don’t want to face the truth.

3. Nate’s Sincerity

Nate is always ready to help someone, even if it means throwing himself into the line of fire to do it. This may not be the most sensible trait, but a very admirable and loveable one.

4. Hermia’s Strength

Once you get to know a little bit of Hermia’s backstory, you start to see why she is as bitter and closed-off as she is. Her tough exterior adds to her strength and no-bullshit personality. Her strength is the one thing she holds onto and relies upon as the rest of her life seems to fall down around her.

5. Nate and Hermia’s friendship

Nate is the one person who has ever really put up with Hermia long enough for her to let her guard down and actually befriend her; and, Hermia is the honest companion that Nate needs. They create a great balance for each other. Hermia’s rough, and sometimes harsh, personality can make her quite unpopular with the rest of the group. But Nate sees through her resilient front and becomes a really great friend for her, and a great element of support as they discover things about themselves they didn’t know were possible.
