Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. Each week they will post a new Top Ten list that one of their bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer.
Top Ten Childhood Favorites
(not in any particular order)
- The Foot Book by Dr. Seuss- I just loved this book as a kid.
- Quick as a cricket by Audrey Wood- The first book I learned how to read. I was so proud I kept bringing it to show and tell at school and reading it to the class.
- Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling- This series is what really made me start to enjoy reading after teachers and my parents trying to force books down my throat.
- Beezus and Ramona by Beverly Cleary- I greatly enjoyed this series. It entertained me and was a lot of fun.
- Amber Brown Series by Paula Danziger- I started reading these because it had my best friend’s name in the title. I ended up l enjoying them a lot also.
- The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle- I loved the pictures and thought this book was beautiful.
- Six Months to live by Lurlene McDaniel- The first book I read by her. I had picked it out at a yard sale a few years before I finally read it. I couldn’t put the book down and actually snuck to read it past my bed time. That is how I knew it was an awesome book. Other than Harry Potter this was the first author that made me love reading. I then proceeded to find all of her books I could get my hands on and still do to this day.
- Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer- I was drawn in by the shiny cover. My 5th grade teacher bought me the book at the book fair. She was a great teacher and it was very nice of her to do that. I'm very upset that they changed all the covers for these books.
- The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis- I loved the adventure in this book. I still need to read the rest of them. I was a stubborn child and was upset when I started the next one and found all new characters. I do plan to read them at some point. They are all waiting for me on my bookshelf.
- What my mother doesn’t know by Sonya Sones- I loved that this book was written in poetry but still told a story. This was the first book I ever read written in that format. It was a fast fun read.
