Also my Big Reveal Post was a hit. When I decided to use Sacrifice Her as my A-Z Blog Challenge theme. I knew I'd have a challenge doing posts all month for a novella that's still unfinished without giving everything away. But now that worry no longer invades my mind on this topic, I'm content that I've done my best for April. See you there.
Books I enjoyed as a child.
I was crazy addicted to these books. Before I got into the world of Harry Potter, Sweet Valley books (especially the High and University series) were where it was at for me.
No this isn't my bookshelf but I have quite a lot of V.C. Andrews books. In high school it was the book I had to seriously save money to buy because of the cost. Would you believe that up to Harry Potter #4 that these books actually were more expensive? Yeah they ran around $500 (JM) a pop and I got my HP#4 for under $400. Today Andrews books cost nearly $800 or more and HP books are between $1500 to over $3000! Whether it was the Gothic feel, or just really great writing, I was drawn into worlds by this author that I had to know what happened next.
And the book to conquer them all. I was first introduced to Harry Potter by a friend in my early teens who then lent me her book one. I was thrown into a world of fantasy like never before but it took a few years before I was converted to being a true fantasy gal. Today I can't imagine not buying fantasy/paranormal books every year. When I look at my book collection now, some from high school are actually for older ages than the books I own now. Wild.
P.S.: Next month is the A-Z Blog Challenge so no more Express Meme until May. So ta ta for now.
So that's it. But before you go, check out this cute baby pic (free images rock). I feel just as happy/giddy.
