My History as a Reader

  • Learning to Read

  • Go, Dog. Go!/ P. D. Eastman

    Go, Dog. Go!/ P. D. Eastman
    The only thing I remember from this book was how much it used to make me laugh when my mom would read it to me. I only hope I can find the book to read to my daughter.
  • The Cat in the Hat/ Dr. Seuss

    The Cat in the Hat/ Dr. Seuss
    The Cat in the Hat was the first ever Dr. Seuss book that I had ever learned to read. After reading this book, I was hooked. I read ever Dr. Seuss book I could get my hands on. I also remember destroying a bunch of them from spilling drinks on them.
  • Dick and Jane/ Zerna Sharp

    Dick and Jane/ Zerna Sharp
    When I started to read, my grandmother bought me this book for my birthday. I remember trying to read this book for a day straight, even though I didn't understand the majority of the words. I still have this book till this day and I plan on reading it to my daughter when she begins to read.
  • Where the Sidewalk Ends/Shel Silverstein

    Where the Sidewalk Ends/Shel Silverstein
    My mother used to read this book to me before she would leave for work at night. To this day, I could probably cite the majority of the book.
  • Where The Wild Things Are/ Maurice Sendak

    Where The Wild Things Are/ Maurice Sendak
    Growing up, this book used to scare me. The way that the animals are illustrated in this book are, in my opinion, not for children under ten.
  • Charlottes Web/ E. B. White

    Charlottes Web/ E. B. White
    I read this book and loved it. It took me a while to finish it but when I did I wanted to read it again.
  • The Fault In Our Stars/ John Green

    The Fault In Our Stars/ John Green
    The book was released a few days before my birthday and I begged my mother to get it for me. Once she did, she told me she wanted to read it first before she let me read it. Since I was only eleven, she wanted to make sure it did not contain anything terrible that I wouldn't be able to read.
  • Dork Diaries/Rachel Renee Russell

    Dork Diaries/Rachel Renee Russell
    I decided to read this series of books because I felt like I related to them so much. I was never popular throughout school and I tended to stick to my self.
  • The Hunger Games Series/ Suzanne Collins

    The Hunger Games Series/ Suzanne Collins
    When this series of books came out, I wasn't quite old enough to read them. My mom made me wait until I was 12 before she would purchase them for me. I will say that the books are so much better than the movies.
  • Harry Potter Series/ J. K. Rowling

    Harry Potter Series/ J. K. Rowling
    Books and movies about anything magical used to be my all time favorite. I used to wish I could be just like the magical characters in the books I read, just like Harry Potter. As I began to get older, I realized that they weren't true and I started to not be so interested in them.
  • Diary of A Wimpy Kid/ Jeff Kinney

    Diary of A Wimpy Kid/ Jeff Kinney
    I never understood the popularity behind these books. I did not enjoy reading them, they just seemed rather plain to me.
  • The Polar Express/ Chris Van Allsburg

    The Polar Express/ Chris Van Allsburg
    Usually books are better than movies, but I have to say that the movie over this book was better. I liked seeing all the scenes pictured instead of in words. I didn't't like how the book seemed like it dragged on.
  • A Child Called "It"/Dave Pelzer

    A Child Called "It"/Dave Pelzer
    During my sophomore year of high school, I was introduced to this book by my older sister. This is the first book I read cover to cover in one day. The way it was wrote, just makes you not want to stop reading it. In some aspects, I kind of related to the story of it. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that's looking for a good cry!

    Dave Pelzer Books

  • The Lost Boy/Dave Pelzer

    The Lost Boy/Dave Pelzer
    After reading, "The Child Called It," I immediately went to my high school library and checked out the next book. I did not read this book cover to cover in one day because the second book is never as good as the first. If I remember right, this book had taken me three days to read completely.
  • A Man Named Dave/ Dave Pelzer

    A Man Named Dave/ Dave Pelzer
    After being completely hooked to the first two books by Dave Pelzer, I thought I try reading the third. I did not like this book like I liked the first two. I didn't like how it was a set up and how it felt like it just kind of dragged on.
  • Animal Farm/George Orwell

    Animal Farm/George Orwell
    In my sophomore English class, we were forced to read "Animal Farm" by George Orwell. I did not like this book at all. I didn't like how it made me feel like I was back in elementary when I was reading it.
  • If You Give a Mouse a Cookie/ Laura Numeroff

    If You Give a Mouse a Cookie/ Laura Numeroff
    I read this book to my niece and nephew last year and I had just understood what it was truly about. This book shows the psychological effects that happen if you give someone something that they ask for.
  • A Walk to Remember/ Nicholas Sparks

    A Walk to Remember/ Nicholas Sparks
    I must say, I have always be a sucker for romance novels/movies so when I was given the chance to read this book during my senior year of high school, I was ecstatic.
  • Charlottes Web/ E. B. White

    Charlottes Web/ E. B. White
    I read this book to my daughter every night before she goes to sleep. I only get about two pages in before she tries grabbing at it and tearing it. She may only be 8 and a half months old, but in my opinion it's never too early to start reading. I actually chose to name my daughter "Charlett" because of how much I enjoyed reading this book as a child.
