Alex J. Cavanaugh is holding a new blogfest…First Loves Blogfest. It’s simple, on 14th May, post your first loves – first movie, first song/band, first book, and first person. Four loves, one blogfest! Click on the image above for details on joining.
So, let’s kick off.
I received my first ever vinyl album at Christmas. It was Marilyn. I adored and loved this record, listening to it over and over again. I was very young at the time, so I didn’t know any better…hehe. If you dare, here’s the song that I was crazy for.
The first movie I fell for and watched dozens of times was Lost Boys. Plus, it helped that most of the guys in the movie were major hotties. In truth, there were other movies before that, but I didn’t love them as much as Lost Boys.
I can’t recall exactly which book I fell in love with first, but there is one series that always sticks with me. I picked up the first book in the mid 90s and fell in love with the series, which is still going today. I believe the last book might be coming out in 2013. I’m talking about Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series.
Interestingly, at the same time I picked up George R R Martin’s first novel, Game of Thrones with the exact cover below, and proceeded to read the next few books as they came out. It’s strange to watch the series now, so many years since I’ve read the early books.
I’m going back now to my time in primary school for my first love… maybe not love, but first crush. A young boy, whose name I can’t recall, but he would walk home the same way I did. In fact, he walked on the path across the road from me, but he would talk to me across the street the whole way home. It was sweet 🙂
Can’t wait to read everyone else’s.
