  1. It's so lovely to see so much Harry Potter on these lists. I love seeing Roald Dahl too. I should have used him on my list. He definitely was a gateway author for me! Great list!

  4. First, I'm in love with the name of your blog. :)
    Second, I really like your list. The Giver was SO CLOSE to being on my list, but it was cut, so I like seeing it get some attention. I have Harry Potter and The Hunger Games on mine, as well.

  7. Harry Potter made my list too, it's my favourite series of all time and the ultimate gateway book for me. The Hunger Games made mine as well, that book led me to dystopian fiction. I loved Roald Dahl's books when I was a kid, they are all brilliant. Great list, thanks for stopping by my TTT :)
