The first book you've ever read challenge



Hello everyone! Yes I'm back, and today I wanted to start something I hope will catch on. So today I'll be starting this challenge called "The first book you've ever read"

The rules are simple

  • Challenge at lest 1 person
  • Share what was the first book you've ever read
  • Why you read it in the first place
  • How did it inspire you to become a writer
I thought it would be a pretty cool idea if we writers would share what originally inspired us to peruse this path of artist expression.


Okay since I'm starting this Challenge I think it would be cheeky if I didn't go first, the reason is because a lot of your writers out there have read a TON of books so it would be a little harder for you to pin point the what's and way's.

So thinking back the first book I ever really read was Curse of the Spider King: The Berinfell Prophecies Series - Book One by Christopher Hopper and Wayne Thomas Batson

I read this book when in I was in my early teens, and yes it was the first novel I had ever read for pleasure (outside of homework textbooks). Reading had always been a struggle for me, recently I found out it was partly due to the fact that I'm mildly dyslectic (plus I wasn't all that interested). So with older books like Lord of the Rings and Narnia, the way things where worded was too complicated. Besides that, it never seemed like I could find a book a superhero nerd like me wanted (It was easer to read comics actually). But then one day my older sister showed me this book while we where at a bookstore. I read the back and thought this could be interesting. A plot involving seven superpowered elves that where raised on earth, fighting in against this monster called the Spider King, and all this taking place on a world not our own. My curiosity go the better of me that day. So I gave it a try and as it turned out I would really liked it and it opened me up to a whole new kind of world.

The way this book inspired me to peruse writing was that as a read it, got to know the characters, explored a fantasy world. I thought of how this book really showed me a world that was different, a world filled with interesting things to explore. That's when I thought that if someone else could create a world that beautiful just by using word. Then maybe I could create the worlds that filled my own imagination. That maybe there was someone else out there like me who wanted to go on a adventure as much as I did, but just couldn't fine the right train to take. 

That is why I started writing, because I wanted to share the same experience I had with others. I wanted to share a world with someone else.

And that's a wrap! 
That was the first book I ever read
And now it's time to Challenge some other people.

  1. This is a really awesome idea! I look forward to doing this one. I'll have to think back to the first book I remember reading because I know I will never remember the first book I ever read. (I was always a bookdragon, lol.)

  2. This is a fun idea indeed, M! And hearing about your first one was cool. It's always exciting to find a book that sparks interest. My younger sister has hated reading from the get go. She had a hard time with it, and that's okay. My mom didn't want to push, because she didn't want it to become a hated thing instead of a joy. And finally, I found a series that she took interest in last year, and she re-read it like 3 times. She still isn't a huge reader, but she's enjoying it a little more now.
    And I wish I could say I always loved reading as much as I do now. But I'll wait to say more till my own blog post. ;)
    Oh by the way, I love the graphic for this challenge - what font is it? :)

    1. Thanks! That's why I thought it would be cool to see how other peoples interest was sparked. Because I know we all write differently so me being me wants to see how that all happened :) Wow that's cool! I'm sure I can relate to your younger sister with that ^_^ YES I need to see your post on this!

      Thank you! the font is Harrington

    2. It is a very interesting thing, I agree. :)
      Haha, I've got it scheduled to post Wednesday. I think you'll laugh at what my first book was - it's not very 'cool XD

      Good to know! I love fonts, and different ones are so eye-catching.

  3. Oh, yikes... I don't remember the first book I read, that was forever ago... My mom taught me to read, and from what I hear from her about it (I don't remember it much) it was a bit of a tough job (understatement). Then I picked up books and decided that I was a bookworm. I'll have to get around to this soon... Although it will probably be a little way away.... But I will eventually come back to this and write 1000+ words about it. Thanks for challenging, this will be fun!
