Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish.
Two weeks ago, I was rebellious and switched Top Ten Tuesdays. So this week, I’m doing the one I missed. That is: top ten gateway books/authors in my reading journey. And I can think of quiiiite a few. Here goes.
1) Harry Potter
Because apparently I can’t have a single Top Ten Tuesday without it.
2) Looking for Alaska
This was my first foray into contemporary YA.
3) My Sister’s Keeper
One of the first adult books I read. It was contemporary, just not YA, and it kind of led me to John Green.
4) The Princess Diaries
One of the first YA books I read.
5) Trixie Belden
One of the first MG books I read (much better than Nancy Drew, btw)
6) Little Women
The first classic I read.
7) The Northern Lights
Probably my first experience of a genre mash-up.
8) The City of Ember
My first dystopian (probably…I think…)
9) Artemis Fowl
The first MG book I read as a YA
Those are my nine gateway books in my reading journey! What are yours?
