The “First Book You’ve Ever Read” challenge.

Hey y’all! I’m back with the “First Book You Ever Read Tag.” I was tagged by S.M. Metzler at Tea With Tumnus. She’s awesome, and you can read her answers here.

This really lives up to its name of being a challenge. I had a very hard time remembering what the first book I read was. Now, if we went with the actual first book I read, I expect it would be something like Henry and Mudge. I really liked those books. But we’re not going with that. I’m going to do what both S.M. Metzler and Marrok Macintyre (the founder of this challenge) did, and tell you about the first book I actually really read and remember reading.

So, without further ado:

The Giant Yo-Yo Mystery



The Aldens are helping one of Grandfather’s friends break a world record by building the world’s largest yo-yo! But someone follows them, and then the plans for the yo-yo turn up missing. Someone is trying to sabotage the yo-yo before it’s launched!


Yes, this was the first book I remember reading, and it kickstarted my love of The Boxcar Children, as well as mysteries in general. This series was actually what made me want to be a writer. It’s also made me love writing sibling relationships. Seriously, I could go on for a really long time about this series, but I’m not going too.

I think I’ll end this one here. If you’d like to do this, consider yourself tagged, and if you liked what you saw please like, comment, and/or subscribe. I’ll see you soon!

  1. This was fun to read! I loved the Boxcar Children growing up, and Henry and Mudge has been passed down through each of my siblings through the years. I may be biased, but I think you had good taste in your first reads. 😀
