Jessica Donaghy Don't forget to visit http://www.firstbook.org/whatbook to help send books to kids in need!


message 2: by Tracy (new)

Tracy I remember this story and how it so hooked me in. I was so mad at the way Buck was treated! I'll never forget this book and the rest, as they say, is history.


message 3: by Mary (new)

Mary Okay, I can see by the fact that I'm clicking on every book, I suppose there wasn't one book that got me into reading (probably loved it at birth), but tons that I looooved when I was still deciding what types of books to read.


message 4: by Dana (new)

Dana good book but most of stephen king is


message 5: by Ceci (new)

Ceci I got hooked on the Beatrix Potter books, and Maurice Sendak's masterpieces that were read aloud to me when I was a little kid, and I could look at the amazing art. The first non-picture book I read myself, and that instantly hooked me, was C.S. Lewis' The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.


message 6: by jo (new)

jo what really, really hooked me was a series of mystery/adventure paperbacks for kids. there were two i particularly liked: one had a young girl as the leader, the other had a group of boys who had their headquarters in a makeshift hideaway built with tires and planks and entirely hidden from grown ups. i can't count the occasions on which i hated my mom for calling me to the dinner table. i would have been entirely happy to skip dinner altogether and subsist on a diet of tap water just so that i could continue reading! for the life of me, though, i can't begin to remember the name of this series. too bad.


message 7: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh, I love Beatrix Potter too and read them all to my son. I also loved Black Beauty and all the Walter Farley books and was a fan club member. We never forget these books. I also had to read Alice in Wonderland but never really liked it that much.


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Some of these books do not seem like children's books to me!


message 9: by Jennie (new)

Jennie Interesting. I tried to come up with a specific book that "hooked" me, and realized I don't remember a time in my life when I didn't read. I guess I'm more like Scout from To Kill a Mockingbird: "One does not love breathing." It's just something I've always done.


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Well, some books really influenced me and I guess that is what is meant here. I have always read too as my mother did. But some books cause you to forget everything else and become totally focused on the book and change your outlook on life.
Tracey I also felt that way about Buck in The Call of the Wild. It upset me real bad. I liked White Fang better.
I have read many books and quite a few I barely remember at all but some books you NEVER FORGET. These are the ones that get you hooked and influence your life. There are also pages you remember all your life!!!!!

Me too! And that is one of my books. When i had children I loved reading to them and, of course, all my children love to read. Two of my children are writers.

I would love to find out what those books were because I seem to remember something like that. My mother used to call me to dinner by saying, "Go tell the lady that dinner is ready!" I always had to do dishes because I didn't help with the set-up.


message 13: by Ashley (new)

Ashley i love this book


message 14: by Ashley (new)

Ashley i love the way the author writes



message 15: by Jessica (new)

Jessica The Secret Garden got me hooked in third grade. I didn't really read before third, so I was a late bloomer. I wanted a secret place to have to myself to make beautiful. I liked the way a brat herself, helped another kid who was considered a brat.

Only one video of it is realistic, the Hallmark one, if I am not mistaken.


message 16: by Sunflower (new)

Sunflower Where are the Enid Blyton books? What about her Famous Five and Secret Seven books?


Susanna - Censored by GoodReads Why don't you add them, Sunflower?


message 18: by Irene (new)

message 19: by Ellie (new)

Ellie a lot of these books are some I read when I was really little and I'm still reading now.


message 21: by Sallyaslibrarian (new)

Sallyaslibrarian My first love was a nonfiction book, X-raying the Pharaohs. I was entranced by mummies and Egypt...My first beloved work of fiction was Anne of Green Gables. I read it over and over!

Jen Watership down is NOT a childrens book, its likely at least a high school + reading level.

Barbara Jen wrote: "Why is Gone with the wind in there? That is 1000+ page civil war love story, not a kids quick story."

For some people, reading as a child was not pleasurable, but was frightening and a chore. Some people did not have good experiences learning to read. I have heard many adults tell me, as a librarian, that it wasn't until they read a certain book as an adult that they got "hooked". So, I think it is fair to put adult books on this list if it fits that person's situation. Personally, I am more of the reading as breathing kind of person, but it is different for everyone. I got my first library card before I went to kindergarten and the library was on the next block. At 4 years old I was allowed to cross that one street to go to the library by myself! Boy, the world has changed - no parent would do that these days.




message 31: by Reader17 (new)

Reader17 Der I wasn't hooked into books until 8th grade (I had a reading disability). Read my first romance novel in 8th grade and fell in love with Romance novels. Now I'm in my 40s and started to branch out after reading Harry Potter and Twilight. Also as an adult got into manga first series Fruits basket.

There are some stories as a child I loved and brought for my kids when they where born. Green Eggs and Ham!!

Now I am hooked on Young Adult and Manga. Sad my romance is now on the back burner to the other books.


message 32: by Cutebabys (new)

Cutebabys Why is Gone with the wind in there? That is 1000+ page civil war love story, not a kids quick story.

I think I agree with you. In fact, I didn't manage to read it. I tried when I was 11, but I gave up. It was boring for an eleven-year-old kid. Now I've lost the book although I want to try it again.

"i hated books"


message 38: by Kim (new)

Kim The title of this listopia "What got you hooked?" made me reminisce my youthful childhood days with Enid Blyton. Marvelous!


message 39: by Morgan (new)

Morgan F I started early. Matilda and Tuck Everlasting got me hooked in 3rd grade.


message 40: by Laura (new)

Laura I can't remember not reading -- but was hooked on books early in elementary school. I liked all the series books and still remember reading them!


message 41: by saferia (new)

saferia This was a trip down memory lane. Of course I clicked on my than one book, but different books appealed to me at different ages. And some I now read to my students and see how the stories have opened their eyes to other worlds.


message 42: by Allen (new)

Allen Good list. I definitely thought that if I didn't read Harry Potter then I definitely will not be a book fanatic. I'm happy to see that Twilight isn't in the top 5.


message 43: by William (new)

William Apples in a Pail.. True story about a 3 yr olds snack request and the places she liked to eat it. Funny and gets the kid & parent(s) involved making the treat together.. Actual photography used.. book:Apples in a Pail|7506163]


message 44: by William (new)

William You may like Apples in a Pail.. My mother in law is a teacher (1st grade) and her students loved it.. Unsure what age group you teach, but thought I would just let you know..

Apples in a Pail


message 45: by Jake (new)

Jake I used to read a ton when I was a kid, but somewhere around late middle school I started getting bored and turned off by the books forced on me by the school curriculum and was sadly turned off personal reading for awhile. Then when I was 17 my friend let me borrow Ender's Game and I have not stopped reading since.

I think showing young boys well written books that they want to read will open them to the whole world of literature rather than forcing them read the Brontë sisters at age 13.

Val Wilkerson I can't remember not liking to read. I remember how great it was when I could read "chapter" books. I can thank my parents for always taking me to the library etc.

Emily The books that got me reading were the Harry Potter series. I didn't really like reading before reading those books. But now I can't stop reading.

Brie Hillman Magician: Apprentice plus Magician: Master. Read both books in the same day & night. BEST BOOKS IN THE WORLD!! First books to get me hooked too in 2008. I read before that but now I can't seem to be anywhere without gripping a book to my chest! I didn't really enjoy reading before; I only really liked reading Goosebumps back then; short, simple and amusing.
Eagle in the Sky by Wilbur Smith Try it; sad but semi-happy ending.

Sarahsocoolio I got hooked on the series of unfourtunate events and since then fantasy books have turned me into a book worm.
