5 Books/Series That Got Me Into Reading

Hello there! First, you only have 7 days left to participate in my giveaway, so if you want to be part of it, then I suggest you to hurry up! The post is pinned on my blog, so it’s the first post you’ll see on my blog! Go check it out! And it’s international!

For today’s post I thought that it would be nice to share my first readings with you guys! Technically, these weren’t my first reads; let’s just say that these books were part of my transition from middle-grade books to YA. Back at that time, I didn’t buy books. Rather, I took them at the school library (it was a public school, so the books weren’t updated and they had many old and not interesting books -_- Thank you FS4G!!! ) and I downloaded them on my phone. (aaah, it was the java technology back in the days *sniff sniff* I feel old now XD ) So, I was in Form 3 (hmmm I was 14) and my school library had miraculously received new books, so naturally, my friend and I dived for them. It was The Vampire Diaries by L.J. Smith. And because we were badasses like that, we read the first 4 books in no particular order or whatsoever XD In between them, I also read the first volume(that is, the first two books) of The Last Vampire by Christopher Pike, and at that time, I loved it so much! I remember that Twilight (the movie) had already been released and I think that we were on Eclipse or Breaking Dawn – Part 1, but for some reason, I never felt attracted to the books or movie, so I never read them and never watched the rest of the movie besides the first and second one. Anyway, I was addicted to vampires, so I quite read a lot of… “vampire literature”.

1. The NightWorld Series by Lisa Jane Smith

I remember reading and loving these! My absolute favourite was Daughters of Darkness and I loved Ash Redfern! Still waiting for the last book, Strange Fate, to be released. It’s been, what? Almost 6 years now? -_-

2. The Morganville Vampires by Rachel Caine

I read up to Kiss of Death and then my phone broke. Unfortunately, I never could go back to this world because I lost the urge to reading vampire books. But I remember loving every single book and wanting Shane as my book boyfriend ❤ Maybe one day I’ll go back and read them all again 😉

3. The Soul Screamers series by Rachel Vincent

*note: I read all of the books in french and the novellas (3 last in the picture)  in english

I am happy to say that I am the proud owner of these books here 🙂 Again, I read all of the books but the last, mostly because by the time I got a copy,3 years had passed and I forgot a lot of things. Mostly, I skimmed through it but never really “read” it as such. But as I already own them, I know I can get through them whenever I feel like 🙂 Besides, aren’t these covers gorgeous? I love the cover for the last book! Her dress *o*

4. The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan

Yes. I am one of those weird people who has read The Kane Chronicles before Percy Jackson. I actually read The Heroes of Olympus before Percy Jackson, so… Anyway. I remember my friend lending me her book when I was in Form 4, before chemistry tuition, and reading it during the second term holidays. And I loved everything about this. Next thing I knew, I’ve searched for the sequel and eagerly waiting year after year to read the second and third book.

5. Old Magic by Marianne Curley

How could I write a post and not mention this book? I read Old Magic back in 2010 during the second term holidays and I swear, this book was my favourite thing for the rest of the year! I’ve already re-read it 3 times now, and it’s been on my wishlist for way too long. Definitely a favourite of mine!

And there you have it! These are some of the books which have definitely marked me in a way and which have encouraged me to go forward to discover new genres. If it wasn’t for these books, I never would have find my way to goodreads, fan pages on facebook and later on, blogs 🙂

What about you? Which books or series got you into reading? Tell me in the comments below!

See you all soon ❤

  1. Harry Potter is definitely in my list, along with Warm Bodies and Fallen by Lauren Kate. I loved that book when it first came out! But The Other Boleyn Girl and The Pillars of the Earth were the books that really fueled my reading passion as a teenager.

      1. The Fallen series isn’t that great its really not, for some odd reason I love the first one, I think its the way its written but the series lost a lot of appeal. I highly recommend The Pillars of the Earth its just amazing, and so well done, Ken Follet is amazing.
