My Top Ten Gateway Books


I think this week has been my hardest top ten tuesday yet. I was not an early reader. I was a very very very late reader, not really achieving any proficiency until 4th grade. But once I got it my reading skills progressed really quickly. Since then large portions of my time and identity have been vested in reading. These are the books that helped me make this change. Sorry to the one’s I left off. This has seriously felt like a bit of a Sophie’s Choice for me.

What gateway books got you interested in reading? What books would you recommend to a child or teenager that said they didn’t like to read?

Thanks to The Broke and the Bookish for hosting this weekly book meme.

    1. Yeah, I think A Wrinkle in Time is the book that everyone loves but people don’t talk about that much. Can you even imagine what a Wrinkle in Time fandom would look like? Thanks for commenting! Can’t wait to check out your list.
