What do you guys think? What were your gateway books?


  1. I haven't heard of Sirantha Jax series, I'll have to check it out. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  2. Hunger Games was my gateway book for dystopian novels. So glad I discovered it. My gateway into sci-fi/aliens was the Sirantha Jax series. I'm always trying to find more stories that are like it.
