Book Tag: My Life in Books

I’m quite partial to a blog tag. As a reader it gives me a chance to find out more about my favourite bloggers and as a writer it’s another opportunity to talk about more of my favourite things. Today I’m sharing my life in books, which I first read on Water Painted Dreams.

What is the first book that you remember reading?

I can’t pinpoint a specific book really far back but one of the first books I read for pleasure was The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton.

What books made up your childhood?

Good old Enid again – The Famous Five, Secret Seven – plus The Babysitters Club, Sweet Valley High and Goosebumps. I liked series – I always wanted more.

What’s the first series of books you devoured?

I went after every Babysitters Club book I could find!

What books take you back to a certain point in your life and why?

I remember reaching that age when I started reading books that were found upstairs in the library – the Young Adult Books, such as Point Horror and Point Romance. I felt like such a grown up! The library was brilliant. I always took out the maximum amount.

What book changed your life or at least could change someone else’s?

To Kill a Mockingbird. I read it for the first time as an adult and I was really touched by the youthful innocence of it. It made me want the world to be a simpler place.

If you could only read one book for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Ah, just one?! I guess it would have to be a long one… Probably a compilation of books in one. Can someone make me one?
