"First novel you remember reading."
I honestly can't remember. I remember my favourite children's books and knowing the stories back and fourth. I remember my mum reading me "Matilda" when I was little. I remember George's Marvellous Medicine being so funny after hearing a book on tape, I had to have an actual book and reading it myself, but I don't think it was the first novel I read. I remember a wonderful childrens book about mer people (not the Little Mermaid) and four of the mer kids come to the surface for adventures, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called.
Then in later years I remember going to Babysitter's Club and the Sweet Valley series and Anne Rice and others. (I remember in my teens being told I was too young for Stephen King but for some reason Anne Rice was okay, probably because I was hooked on Buffy and other vampire stuff by then)
I can't actually remember what the first novel I read was.
