Day 24 – A Book You’ve Wanted to Read for a Long Time But Haven’t

My TBR pile is the length of my arm. Longer. No, really it’s now just turned into a TBR bookcase. It’s getting ridiculous. I’ve actually set myself a resolution for this year of not buying books that I’m not going to read immediately. It’s been going somewhat successfully (kind of).

But one that I’ve wanted to read for a long time (about 3 years now) is actually the second book to a series. I loved the first book so much because it was something so unique for me.

I hardly remember what I had for dinner last night, let alone remember what I did last year but books? Now they’re something I remember.

The best book I read last year was The Cruel Prince by Holly Black.

Day 18 – The First Novel You Remember Reading

I’ve always been an avid reader since I was really young. I had books full of short stories, and picture books full of animals, and I loved The Gruffalo and Where the Wild Things Are. I’ve always been surrounded by books and that made me me. Trying to remember the first novel that I read is a little harder but I think I figured it out.

The first novel I ever read (and finished) was The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo
