Top Ten Tuesday: Books From My Childhood & Teen Years That I’d Love To Revisit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Join in!

The books I’ve chosen are books that were favourites of mine in my childhood and early teen years (and still are today). In some way I’d love to re-read (or re-re-read) all of them, whether it’s reading them to my children one day or simply reading them for myself.

  1. I loved a Series of Unfortunate Events when I read it many years ago as a child! It was such an amazing series, and thinking about it now, I get this distinct feeling of how I felt when reading these books! It’s so peculiar!

    1. A wonderful and powerful book, one I’ve always treasured! So sad that I have no idea where my copy has gone. I’d love to read it again and yeah, I think I’ve been telling myself to read HP again for years, but still haven’t managed to yet. One day!

    1. Roald Dahl is just pure genius 🙂 Chinese Cinderella is amazing. I was quite confronted by it when it read it back when I was 12 or so. Powerful story that definitely should be more known 🙂
