Family Forever Friday (3)

Family Forever Friday

One of the blogs I follow, E&K Family Book Review have is running a Meme and I have decided to take part.  It’s called “Forever Family Friday” and each week KW will post a question for us to answer that will hopefully tell everyone a little bit more about the bloggers taking part.

This week’s question is:
What was the book that sparked your love of reading? How old were you?

Well, when I was younger I sat through the various books being read at school and my parents read books to me hich were usually by Roald Dahl or Enid Blyton. It wasn't until I was around 13 that I started to pick up books to read myself without being forced. This occurred because I had some friends who told me some of the YA horror books were brilliant with particular mention of the Point Horror series. I basically decided to see if they were right. So I went around the local bookstore and saw a book in the YA section called "Monster" by Christopher Pike, the hugely un-original title was enough to make me pick it up. In the end I loved it and I went on to read loads of Christopher Pike books, before slowly expanding my reading list.

Anyway, I am sure most of you will also have a book that first got you into reading so feel free to share it.
