with author Lisa Lueddecke

What is the first book you ever read/remember reading?
To be honest, the first book I really, truly remember reading was this old clothbound novella edition of Cinderella that my mom had. I read it in one day (which I was quite proud of at the time, because I wasn’t the fastest reader and I was like eight), and I got absolutely obsessed with it. I literally sat down that day and started writing my own fairytale, which I’m sure was terrible in many ways, and then I reread the book in one sitting a few days later.

My criteria was simple, I couldn’t just have loved the couple while reading. These are the characters that stayed with me long after I finished their stories.
