It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time for a bookish favorites post. Top 5 Tuesday is hosted by Meeghan over on Meeghan Reads and is quite simple: check out the topic and write a post with your picks.
Today we’ll cover some books that got me into reading!
#1 Fear Street
To be perfectly honest, I don’t recall exactly which R. L. Stine books I read. I had a very thick copy that was a collection of several stories! I’ve always had a love for horror! 😀 It’s entirely possible that it wasn’t even from the Fear Street but from the Goosebumps series. But that was 15 years ago, so no clue. But I do think it was from of the first scary novels I got my hands on, and I read a lot more after that!
#2 Come as you Are
I rarely re-read books, but I went through this one at least 5 times. Our school library had a copy I just happened to pick up. It inspired me to read some more non-fiction books and made me return to the library A LOT.
#3 The Hunger Games
I’m not sure if I would like these books were I to read them today. But back in the day when the first movie came out, I decided that I need to read the novels first and devoured them over a long weekend. I think this was the first time that I binge-read like that and not only did it make me read even more, it’s also one of the first things I ever reviewed for my blog!
#4 13 Reasons Why
Shortly after The Hunger Games, I picked up 13 Reasons Why which had my spiralling down the YA road even further!
#5 Heart-Shaped Box
This one was a gift a friend got me for a birthday years ago. I had read scary stuff and horror before, but this pushed me further into the more grown up areas. I read quite some more stuff from Joe Hill, Stephen King, and the likes!
