    I know this thread's been done before, but since it was a good few years ago there might be new members wanting to chime in or old members who missed it last time.

    When I was 13 or 14 I stayed up all night for the first time ever to read my first fantasy book (Time of the Twins) by candlelight. I loved it. I also don't remember any of it except for (citrus spoiler alert) a scene where an orange is eaten. Pretty sure it wasn't a major plot point.

    What was the first fantasy book you ever read?

    The first fantasy book I ever read was The Book of Three which is the first of The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. I loved it so I read the whole series. Sadly I no longer have them, I have no idea where they went.

    I have no idea what happened to my copy of Time of the Twins either. Maybe everyone's first fantasy book just disappears.

    Yeah I think they end up in that mysterious void along with all those socks, left handed gloves and the thing that I need right at the moment but isn't where I know I left it - fortunately these usually only take a temporary trip to the void, unlike the books, socks and gloves which seem to be lost forever.
