This week's question is: What is the first book you remember reading? – Bookish Findings 

MY ANSWER: Oh pickles. I can't remember what the first book ever was. Books I grew up reading endlessly as a child were the Berenstain Bears books and some large Disney ones that were basically all my favorite Disney movies in book format!

Sorry for the tiny picture, but wanted to show the book I was referring to. Sadly Goodreads only had a small one. Amazon was no help either.

But if we want to talk first book that got me into reading, or more precisely, Paranormal reading, well I will share with you the book I love to mention:

Yup! Demon in My View by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes. I'm pretty sure I read Amelia's first book, In the Forests of the Night first, and while I did like that one. It was Demon in My View that I totally fell in love with vampires! Perhaps I was a bit spoiled with the heroine being named Jessica, but that truly made the enjoyment all the more better! And it was probably after this one that my mind started spinning with ideas and the dream of being a writer was born!



  1. Awww, what a cute first book! I also like your book that got you into reading :)

  2. Of course the all time classic beauty and the beast! Great choice! Old follower

  3. oh just love Beauty and the Beast, such a classic fairy tale.

  4. I HAD THAT BOOK, TOO! I loved it. And why do I always forget about the Berenstain Bears? I went through them like hotcakes.

  5. That's such a cute book! I don't think I had many fairy tale books growing up. :( Old follower!

  7. Oh I loved the big Disney ones! I can remember reading them too and I always went straight to them in the library! lol

  8. I loved the disney books too! I'm an old follower.

  11. I had so many Disney books!! I'm not sure if I had that one though! My favorite was The Lion King Little Golden Book! :D

    Here's my F&F!

  12. I can't remember the exact first book I read but the author which featured predominantly in my childhood was Enid Blyton. The book which drew me into paranormal and fantasy was Twilight.

  13. I loved a Demon in my view Following back!

  14. The Berenstain Bears!! Completely forgot about those, and I don't know how because I loved them! I'm loving the question this week, because it's bringing back so many fond stories that helped me nurture my love for reading. I definitely remember reading the Boxcar Children mystery, Nancy Drew, the boy version of Nancy Drew (totally blanking!), and the Babysitters Club books!

  15. Oh my god yes!!! I remember those big disney picture books!! They have those in Germany as well, I own the exact same edition of it just in my language.

  16. Forgive me if this posts twice, but I was having some trouble. Anyway, I was just saying that I had never heard of Demon In My View before. But hearing you talk about it, I think I'm going to have to check it out!

  17. One of the earliest books I remember reading is Bunnicula.

  18. I loved Beauty and the Beast but haven't read the other two. Will check them out. I fell for the vampires when I read Twilight. LOL
