This weeks "Top Ten Tuesday" is: Top Ten "Gateway" Books.
Check out the previous and upcoming topics here!
Harry Potter #1
I picked this book up in the sixth grade, when the fourth book was coming out. It is the first series I ever read. It was my gateway book into serious reading and my gateway book into Children's fantasy.
The Princess Diaries #1
Before reading this series I had only read the Harry Potter series. So, this book opened me up to reading other books. It was a gateway book to a different genre: YA.
3. Sarah Dessen
My friend lent me This Lullaby and I fell in love. This Lullaby was a gateway book into books with a more serious tone. Quickly after reading it I read every other book that Sarah Dessen had released at the time. I love her novels and she is one of my favourite authors. Her novels are always gateway books back into reading, and back into the YA genre.
The Mortal Instruments #1
City of Bones was my gateway book into YA Supernatural. It was also my gateway book into bad boys.
5. Moon Called
Mercy Thompson #1
Moon Called and the Mercy Thompson series was my gateway into Adult Supernatural/Fantasy.
And thankfully it's a pretty great series.
Beautiful Disaster blew my mind and was my gateway book in New Adult (this was before New Adult was ever really even a genre--instead just a twinkle in someone's eye).
7. Jennifer L. Armentrout / J.Lynn
I love Jennifer L. Armentrout and her novels. Her books are always a gateway back into reading, or into a good YA or New Adult novel when I've strayed too far or have become discourages by the genre
This series is hilarious. Beyond a doubt. This series is always a gateway back into reading when I stray too far. It was also a gateway into a well written, humour filled, mystery covered, supernatural adult novel.
Stray was my gateway novel into Supernatural New Adult novel. It was technically before New Adult was a genre but it is most definitely classified that way now. It was my gateway into a series that had a little bit more gore, but still held some YA characteristics.
Beautiful Bastard #1
This novel was my gateway into Fanfic. It was also my gateway into the Adult Adult novels. There isn't any bondage or anything crazy like that, just a lot of sexy time with a pretty good romance attached.
