Top Ten "Gateway" Books/Authors In My Reading Journey
So I was that little girl who loved horses and horse books.
The Complete Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
I feel like this is a staple of being young
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
I guess I would have to say this was my gateway into Fantasy
The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander
Seriously this series solidified me into the realm of High Fantasy. I can still remember these books and I loved every second of them. There is actually a book where Taran goes off on his own (Taran Wanderer) and I thought that I wouldn't like it without a love story it turned out I did.
The Last Silk Dress by Ann Rinaldi
Sailor Moon started my addiction to Manga (Japanese Comics) and Goong started my addiction to Manwha (Korean comics)
Harry Potter reminded me as an adult why I loved reading. I read the first 5 books in a week. (I was on medication that made me an insomniac and my friend gave me the books for something to do.)
Hello World of Romance and Paranormal. Thank you J.R Ward....Thank you
My first YA Contemporary. I remembered the shock when I told some friends. Hey I read this awesome contemporary book.
So that's the gist of my list. What's on your list?
