Feature & Follow Friday #10

Hi welcome to Follow Friday! Let me tell you what is going on today.  First PJV will be featuring one blogger from this great community each Friday along with having the Follow My Book Blog feature. Each week one blogger will be selected as a feature, so sign up for the Follow Feature.

Our Friday Follow Feature is...


Hi there! My name is Amanda and I am a lover of all things mysterious, passionate, and enchanting. I absolutely could not live without a little romance, fantasy, and PICKLES! Yumm. My favorite genres are paranormal, fantasy, romance, and some thriller/mystery. Outside of reading I enjoy watching anime and playing Final Fantasy and other fantasy-esque video games.

I have been a book addict since first grade and I will never forget my first book, Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. From there my hunger for good reads has budded into creating my blog. I have had many blogs in my day, some about video games and some about silly love poems that I've written. I have always kept a journal of what I have read and what I thought about what I read, but never thought to share it with anyone until on day when I happened across a YouTube video of a teenage boy sharing what he thought about books he recently read, and from there I just took my written journal about books I've read and began documenting on a blog.

Thanks for the visit Amanda! My question for you guys, what is the first book that you remember reading?

Mine? Grimm's Fairy Tales...hmm my tastes haven't strayed much have they?

    First book I remember reading. Sheee, we're going WAAAAAAY back here... well, I remember a Beatrix Potter anthology, early Berenstein Bears books, stuff like The Hungry Caterpiller, Dr. Seuss... the main issue is that I don't remember at what point it segued into me reading from Mom reading to me. But, that I clearly remember, probably Berenstein Bears.

    Candace said...

    I Can Lick 30 Tigers Today and other stories by Dr. Seuss was my first. Before I could read my mom read it to me over and over and ended up making a recording of it so I could just listen to it instead.

    Have a great weekend and I'll see you next Friday!

    Candace said...

    Well, I'll hopefully stop by again before Friday, but you know what I mean...

    Twimom227 said...

    Hmmm... To be honest, the first books I recall reading were either the "Sally, Dick and Jane" readers or "Harold and the Purple Crayon"

    Happy Friday!

    Just stepping by to say thanks again for hosting this fun! But hey, this question is really a tough one... Honestly I truly can't remember which is such a shame!! I will keep thinking about it, maybe I remember.

    Anyway have a wonderful weekend!

    SusanKMann said...

    Hopping over to say hi. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Tanya said...

    Good question!! Definitely Hop-On-Pop, and One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, both by Dr. Suess are my earliest memories and loves of books!! My first chapter book love was The Boxcar Children!

    Have a fantastic weekend, Rachel!!

    Happy Friday!! :)

    Missy said...

    My first book I remember reading is Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit series. After that, I went on a fairy tale kick and my first two "big books" my parents got me were collections of Hans Christian Andersen and Grimm's fairy tales. I devoured them!

    Happy Friday!

    Sa Toya said...

    My first book I remember reading is Wind in the Willows. Then like Missy it was all about the fairy tales for me!

    Also I put a link in twice. SORRY! The first one was the wrong link the second one is the right one!

    Robyn Campbell said...

    I'm following. Please come follow me. I'm a children's book writer on the agent hunt. :) My first and still most favorite book is black Beauty. Anything horses.

    Maria (Serpentine Library) said...

    Thanks for hosting Friday Follow :) The first book I remember reading is Corduroy, my parents read it to me so many times I had it memorized by the time I learned to read.

    ParaJunkee said...

    What a turn out! Ya'll completely rock!

    @Candace & Lup, Yes, I guess the Dr. Suess books are the first books, but I don't remember reading them, I just remember MOM reading them to me.

    @Twi - those Jane books, LOL. I think we just kind of made fun of those.

    @Julie - Thanks!

    @Tanya - I remember Mom reading One Fish, and now I love reading it to my little girl. Fav book...oh and Go Dog Go.

    @Missy - Oh! Completely forgot about Peter Rabbit that might have been one of my first also. I'm going to go run out and get that for my daughter now.

    @Sa Toya - Wind in the Willows - great book.

    @Robyn - I don't know if I read that. Saw the movie ;)

    ParaJunkee said...

    @Maria - we read Corduroy constantly to my daughter. She loves it.
