Blonde Bitch at Waterstones!

Posted on: 2 July 2021

It was the day before my birthday and I had decided to go shopping in Birmingham. Like every other book obsessed teen, I had to go to Waterstones as I wanted to buy a couple of books. Little did I know, I could also buy my own. I was with a friend and he said “imagine if your book was available here” and I smiled.

“Why don’t we check?”

He googled it and I was shocked to see that my book was available to order at my favourite book store : Waterstones. I jumped for joy, god knows what the people around me were thinking but I didn’t care. I was just so excited and so proud. Its moments like these that feel so special, its moments like these when it feels real. I can’t imagine what it will feel like to actually see my book on those book shelves.

I think its easy, as humans, to just look past our achievements and move onto the next thing. However its just as important, if not more, to reflect once in a while and just take a couple of seconds to say “wow.” And let me tell you, I’ve been doing that a lot lately.

I just know, the little girl I once was is so proud right now.

If you see Blonde Bitch at your local bookstores don’t forget to tag me on social media. I hope you have a wonderful day and I’ll see you all very soon.
