Hello!! So nice to see you today! It's hard to believe I ever wasn't a blogger, because I have eat, breathed, and slept books since I jumped on the blogging bandwagon with Jamie, and all my other Broke and Bookish gals back in June of 2010. I've read a million amazing books since then, but some long-time favorites kindled my love of reading way before. Don't tease me about some of these! :P
I'm just going to get this out of the way upfront. Twilight is the book that made me discover there was a young adult section in the bookstore. I had NO idea! I'm not even kidding. I grew up reading romance novels, and never knew there was a genre devoted to me. But oh, I loved Edward. :) Oh, and random fact... this is actually the first book I added to Goodreads when I joined. Crazy!
My first mystery! I became an instant MH-C fan, and will read anything she writes. :)
Did anyone else read the Avon True Romance series? There were, like, 13-14 books aimed towards young adults in this series, all written by well-known authors like Meg Cabot, Beverly Jenkins, etc. This one was my favorite on, though. And thus began my love of pirate romances. I swear, I have this crazy guilty pleasure.
I cried, duh. But I really loved this story. And I think it might just be the least sad book by Mr. Sparks.
My first time travel book! I LOVE Lynn's romances. They are soooooo sweet, and so amazing. I just love Scotland, too, and most of her books take place there.
This book is full of awesome. The writing is lovely, and the story is so unique! Just read it, I tell you.
This book starts when a woman gets kissed by a mysterious man in a Zorro mask on New Year's Eve. Who is he!?!?! Oh, I loved this book.
I was SOOOO scared of this book. It took me forever to be ok with it, and my mom thought I was insane for wanting it. I LOVE THIS BOOK. Seriously, this solidified my love of YA novels.
"Werewolves? Seriously? I love Edward, not Jacob, so I am going to hate this." People, Shiver trumped Twilight. No questions asked. This was a big deal for me!!
Yes, I reviewed this here (my first review ever, actually!), but I actually had to re-read the book in order to remember it enough to write a review. So it counts. My first chick-lit! I loved it!!!!!
Wow. My reading choices and habits have changed so much since I became a blogger! It's insane! Look at all my adult romances on this list! I hardly ever get to read them anymore! Anyway, what amazing books did you read before you blogged, and maybe don't have a review posted? Let me know, and I'll come check it out!
