This Week’s Theme:
We all have to start out of somewhere. Choose a book that got you into reading.
Ella Enchanted – Gail Carson Levine
I’ve always been a huge fan of reading; any of my family members will regale stories of my affinity for playing this reading game on my grandma’s computer when I was two years old. However, it wasn’t until fifth grade when I really picked up my voracious appetite for reading novels. As much as I say that Harry Potter was my first love, it was actually Gail Carson Levine’s Ella Enchanted that I vividly remember picking up and devouring like no other book before it. Potter, on the other hand, was a discovery that came a few months later. While Ella Enchanted is not a book that I feel that I can revisit time and time again, I know I can always look back on it fondly as the one that started it all.
