  1. CHARLOTTE’S WEB YESS. i loved charlotte’s web + would definitely recommend all of eb white’s books for beginning readers. same with roald dahl’s books. they’re imaginative and funny and perfect for children who want to get into reading.

  2. I love this list!! Unfortunately, I haven’t read everything on here 🙁 I embarrassingly have never read anything by Ally Carter – idk, they just always seem juvenile to me? I have no idea. Maybe I’ll give them a try someday. AND YES TO CHARLOTTE’S WEB. The only instance ever were I will like spiders, lol. Thanks for sharing your syllabus! 😉

  3. I don’t remember what book got me into reading because I’ve been reading since I can remember. I’m so glad you featured Simon, fantastic pick! It’s my fave read of the year, too! Oh, and I’d also force Jellicoe Road, Friday Brown (Friday Never Leaving in the US) and The Last Leaves Falling. Just not all in the one go, unless you want a broken heart beyond belief and eyes glued together from all the crying… What can I say? My favourites tend to make me cry – lots.

  4. awesome list, alex! i’m not surprised that most of these books would be on my list too as we have the same taste in books 🙂 i have the raven cycle books but i have yet to read them and i promise i’ll read them soon ah…..

    i think the books that first got me into reading was the twilight saga! i was in 5th grade so please don’t judge lol

    xx, isha

  5. Most of these books are my favorites! Thu Hunger Games really interested me when I read it 6 years ago (I think it’s 6 or almost 7) but the first book I read was Lois Lowry’s The Giver and I liked it. Then I kind of took a break from reading books. But in 2013, I bought Divergent during a book fair and I read it and Iiked it so much that I joined bookstagram and made my own bookish blog. 😉 I’d also recommend Graceling by Kristin Cashore! That book is phenomenal! 🙂

  6. I’VE FINALLY FOUND SOMEONE HERE WHO HAS READ AND LOVED GALLAGHER GIRLS. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. ZACH. CAMMIE. GBRBSFADJWNGIEBUFWAD OH MY GOD. THIS IS SO EXCITING. I LOVE GALLAGHER GIRLS. I’VE READ THEM ALL ABOUT 6 TIMES. THE THIRD BOOK EVEN MORE THAN THAT. I THINK WE JUST BONDED.

    Honestly, Simon left me grinning ear-to-ear for three hours. I just couldn’t stop smiling. AHHHH. I want to re-read it even though I read it like two months ago because I just want to be that happy again. SIMON <333333

  7. MATILDA!! *throws confetti and clever magic everywhere*
    SO that would definitely be on my list, and… hmmm. Harry Potter (I hate be a cliché but) was a series that first got be into well, series, and longer books. Then there’s also Malory Towers and The Fantastic Five 🙂
