Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by
This Week's Topic is:
# 1 & 2 Stephenie Meyer / Twilight
Katie: if you read my bio you'll know i really didn't get " hooked on reading" until Twilight came along. I just was never a reader, and my sister said " you should try this Twilight book, my friend read it and said it was great" so i bought it. A couple of months later when i had moved to a different state. I didnt know anyone ( aside from my husband ) graduated from school and nothing else to do...i gave it a shot and i have been hooked on finding good reads ever since!
Krisha: I'm not thankful for this one the way most other people probably are. I'm thankful that this book really ignited that spark in Katie to really enjoy books the way I do. And, dang, does that girl read! So I guess we can attribute the start-up of this blog to this book.
Krisha: by Laura Ingalls Wilder- I remember the whole series being read to me when I was very young (maybe before kindergarten). When I could read them myself, I don't think the term engrossed really conveys how into these books that I was. These books transported me to a different time and place. I'm thankful that these books helped to develop my imagination and to let me live another life vicariously through Laura.
# 4 Rick Riordan
Katie: Its no surprise we BOTH love Rick Riordan. I am thankful for the amazing adventures he take me on, and I am super thankful for how much he has taught me about greek mythology! I never thought that i would be so into a middle grades series! Check out our Reviews for the Percy Jackson series.Krisha: Green Eggs & Ham and The Sneetches and Other Stories are two of my first "night stand" books. Getting books as presents are cool in my family and they both have inscriptions in them. I'm thankful for the morals Dr. Seuss presents to children in a way they can understand. Oh, and is it weird that I've never read The Cat in the Hat?
|obviously we both have MAD love for TBOLT|
Katie : The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly - I am so Thankful for, what might be my most favorite book ever. To me its like an awesome secret that only few know. Check out our review for Book of Lost Things!
# 8 R.L. StineKatie: I know i say how much i didn't read when i was younger... i mean.. i knew how to read, but It just wasn't my thing. When i did pick up a book here and there in middle school or high school my go to was alway either The Goosebumps or Fear Street books by R.L Stine. Im Thankful these books were around. Out of all the books i HAD to read for school or class.. these books started the small flame that made me WANT to read. Thanks to R.L Stine for catching my ever wondering attention!
It totally helped by the way that when i was reading these.. Goosebumps the TV Show was also out. It was great reading the books and seeing the show ! As an adult in my late 20's im not ashamed to say i personally own many goosebumps DVD's, "the Haunted Mask", " and Welcome to Dead House " to name a few :)
