I was passing by a bookshop today and saw an old copy of Secret Seven by Enid Blyton and that took me down memory lane. It seems the new generation are not too much into reading books but spend more time on social networks. Those who do read tend to go for Kindle e-Readers but I find that a hardcopy is more pleasant to read.

So what books did you use to like reading when you were younger?

Hi, well for me, Ive always been crazy about Stephen King and H.P Lovecraft horror fiction books. Stephen simply is the King. From every writer I know is he the most genius writer. Cheers

Yes, Stephen King is an outstanding author!

Well apparently I like romantic novels, especially the mills and boons series.My favorite one is her sister's child by Cynthia Thomas. I also love thriller books and detective ones as well

The one that comes to my mind is: Secret Seven!!!

Iron_Man 13 Jun 2012

I like comic books like marvel/dc superheroes, old one like asterix&obelix or smurfs etc.. I'm too lazy to read a book with words only...therefore comics are entertaining and they give me courage to read.. :p

Madeleine_Stella 15 Jun 2012

Classic! How about adventure books without comics?

Stephen King was my favourite and still is but I no longer have the time to read such large books. I also vaguely remember Sweet Valley High by Francine Pascal lol

Madeleine_Stella 15 Jun 2012

Yes he enjoys his writing and gets really into his books, hence their size, lol

Peaches 15 Jun 2012

True, he is so involved that he also starred in a few of the movies

gices 13 Jun 2012

Christopher Pike was my favourite with novels like :

  • Slumber Party
  • Chain Letter
  • Spellbound
  • Whisper of Death
  • Die Softly
  • Bury Me Deep

And his Spooksville series was fantastic :

  • The Haunted Cave
  • The Cold People
  • The Wishing Stone
  • Night of the Vampire
  • The Little People

Wow, what a flashback!

Madeleine_Stella 15 Jun 2012

I read a few of his books too and if I remember correctly, there was another children series called Goosebumps on the same shelf in the library as his ones.

Peaches 15 Jun 2012

Oh yeah forgot about them, I used to watch the TV series too
