Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. Today’s theme was:
Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit
I’m going for a mix of books from my childhood and teen years.
Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll (isn’t that cover illustration awesome?!)
Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie
Lord of the Flies by William Golding
And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie
Matilda by Roald Dahl
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan (I’ve actually only read the first three, I think, so I’d like to go back and read them all)
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien
What books from your childhood or teen years do you want to revisit?
It’s day 6 of BookBlogWriMo, and the topic today is “Favorite Childhood Books”.
This is both an easy and hard topic. What part of my childhood should I tell you about? Should I give an overview of a few books from when I was really small to my teen years? I could go on and on and on, but I think I’ll limit it to the first five books that come to mind.
Peter Pan by JM Barrie – I love this book and the play and the movie(s) and everything that has to do with it (I even watch Jake and the Neverland Pirates when I babysit). I have a Peter Pan tattoo. I own at least six different editions of the book. I love it.
The Harry Potter series by JK Rowling – Duh. I grew up with Harry Potter. I was about 10 when the first book came out. I was 17 when the last one came out. I went through my angsty teenage years when Harry WAS YELLING IN ALL CAPS. I love this series. So much. I also have a HP tattoo.
Lord of the Flies by William Golding – I know, I’m a weirdo, but this book is what spurred my love of dystopian novels. This was one of the required books in middle school (?) or high school, I can’t remember, but I devoured it.
Love You Forever by Robert Munsch – I love this sweet book. My parents read this book to me when I was small, and I will do the same when I have my own kids.
To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee – A beautiful novel of acceptance and love. Another “required” book that I am so happy to have had the opportunity to read. I’ve read this one several times since I was supposedly forced to read it and I love it just as much every time.
What are some of your favorite childhood reads?
