For you!

I have dozens more books to post but I'd like to hear a little about you!  What was the fist book you read that absolutely hooked you on loving to read?  Please post your comment at the bottom of the blog! Thank you!

It was Daughter of the Empire by Raymond E. Feist. Started loving fantasy from then on.

I've always read and don't have a book that sparked my interest (at least that I remember, it was some childrens book). I think it was Outlander by Diana Gabaldon that got me hooked on time travel but other then that I don't remember any certain book that pulled me into a certain genre or anything. At some point I read some YA and now I've been sucked in but I don't remember which book did that.

I found you through your email from BookBlogs. You can find me at

Looks like you'll have a great blog! I look forward to reading your reviews :)

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. I remember being absolutely floored by it. Still am. And for only being up five days, your blog is awesome! Found ya on bookblogs, and I might need to go to YOU for tips. I'm here: if you'd like to check it out.


V.C. Andrews Flowers in the Attic hooked me when I was 13 years old, oh god now Im telling my age lol.
Great site, stop by mine anytime.

Omg, I remember falling in love with Shel Silverstein's poetry when I was smaller.

You know when Matilda starts giggling and laughing at a book like in the middle of the library? That was me when I read Shel Silverstein's poetry. So funny and cool art with it.

But what really got me going to the library obsessively was Bruce Coville's science fiction and fantasy books. I love Into the Land of Unicorn series, The Magic Shop series, and the Eight Grade Alien series too. I still haven't finished the alien series, but I love them all the same. Oh and the ghosts series too. Gosh, that brings me back.

I spent my summer at the library with my best friend..We checked out all the R.L Stine books. Remember that Mary? I was hooked then but before that was a romance book called windswept passion by Sonya T Pelton. I still have that copy!
