Book Blogger Hop: May 25-31

Book Blogger Hop is hosted at Coffee Addicted Writer

The purpose of the Hop is to learn about new books, make friends with other bloggers, follow other blogs discover new books and gain more followers for your own blog. The hop will start on a Friday and end on a Thursday and will feature a weekly prompt asking a bookish question.

This weeks question:

Do you remember the first book you read by yourself?


The first book I read myself? Hmm.. tough one I definitely know I had a lot of books read to me when I was young and believe it or not when I was little I didn’t like reading 😮 😮 My grandmother always tried to get me to read and instead I used to prefer being active like going on walks. Now I’m more or less the opposite, I mean sure, I still love going for walks in the country but now I like to focus more on my endless tbr piles… Anyway, the books I remember liking in primary school were R.L. Stine’s Goosebumps books as those were really popular back then and I found them so entertaining. I also remember liking Enid Blyton’s  Famous Five and Secret Seven and when I was very young I had them read to me. There were also a large number of Jacqueline Wilson books I used to really like reading a long time ago too…

The first series I definitely remember reading and enjoying when I was a kid was the Stardust series by Linda Chapman. They absolutely bewitched me and inspired many imaginings back then and even now… But the first book I ever read alone? I’m honestly not sure it could be any of the above but I think now it might have been one of the Goosebumps books as there were so many of those and I made it a mission to read as many of them as possible wherever I could find them in my school’s library. 😛 But I think looking back, that despite my wanting to be out and about as a kid I still loved stories so I think deep inside I’ve always been a bibliophile 🙂 😉

  1. It’s funny how different bloggers have different experiences in coming to love reading. It definitely is a really tough question, I had actually forgotten about Jacqueline Wilson. I also had a love for her books when I was younger, though I think that was only when my reading skills got more ‘advanced’ for a young age. Ah, yes, the good ol’ Goosebumps series! That’s one I’m sure we’re all familiar with, haha. Great answer!

    Feel free to check out my own answer if you wish (with some puppy pictures!)
