Top Ten Tuesday (#15)

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the Broke and the Bookish. They tell us what to write our top ten for, and we do! This week…


Top 10 Books From My Childhood I’d Love To Revisit

As specially requested last week, you can click on the cover to be taken to the Goodreads page!

When I was younger, I read mostly picture books. So this one is sort of hard for me… I’m trying though! 

  1. Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I adored this series as a kid, and so did my mum before me. But I don’t remember the plot very well, so I should relive them!Little House Series
  2. The Babysitter’s Club by Ann M Martin. This was actually the reason I wanted to be a babysitter! So it’d be cute to read that and remember why I felt so inspiredBabysitter's Club #1
  3. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. My gran loves this, and thinks I remember them because I read them once. But I don’t remember it at all…Anne of Green Gables
  4. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. This is the coolest idea! If someone tells her what to do, she has to do it. And I still adore the movieElla Enchanted
  5. Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. Okay, so I wasn’t THAT young when I read these. But they’ve all blended together, and I hate that! Artemis Fowl
  6. Ranger’s Apprentine by John Flanagan. Another series that has just blended together. The last few were terrible, and I want to know if that’s because Flanagan lost his mojo, or because I was older and more criticalRanger's Apprentice (#1)
  7. Diary of a Would-Be Princess by Jessica Green. This book always made me cry! The ending was just so cute. I want to see if it’ll make me cry againDiary of a Would Be Princess
  8. Basically every single book by Jacqueline Wilson ever. I mean, seriously. She’s amazing. Tracy Beaker is one of my favouritesTracey Beaker
  9. Also every book by Cathy Cassidy. Ginger Snaps is probably the best, but Driftwood used to make me cry tooGinger Snaps
  10. When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit by Judith Kerr. This was what got me into historical fiction. It was so amazing, but I don’t remember why

So, what do you have on your list? Have you read any of these? Send me a link to your TTT!

  1. Cathy Cassidy and Jacqueline Wilson were literally all I read growing up! I think I’ve read all their books. :0 My Sister Jodie was probably the first book where I cried while reading. The memories! 😉

      1. Jacqueline Wilson has so many books but my local library has all of them so I read them all. I still read them sometimes lol. Except Sapphire Battersea, I’m pretty sure I’ve read them all 😛
        I really liked Jodie!! xD

  2. Oh this is a fun post! Mine would have to be The Magic Faraway Tree and the Famous Five.

    When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit sounds like it would either be funny or really heartbreaking. It’s a great title either way.

  3. Anne of Green Gables and Ella Enchanted are classics.

    I have fond memories of reading the letters in Ella Enchanted, sitting spread out on the bed in my aunt’s spare room in the hallway with plastic boxes and paper boxes piled on either side of me with a shelf full of pictures right above the two fluffy white pillows on which lay an Arthur aardvark doll and an Atta from A Bug’s Life toy.

    There was an old lamp next to the small cupboard with broken drawers containing doll furniture a few inches from the end of the bed that I would twist on and read a chapter of that book every night before bed. One of those letters, then twist off the light and head down on the pillows and off to dreamland, my father in Thailand and Aunt Marilyn snoring out in the hall.

    Then I would read more chapters at the laundromat, in the car, and at Bob Evans, but still it took me too long. Finally, when my aunt was watching There’s A Girl in My Soup in the living room, I had nothing to do but go down the hall, spread out on the bed and read chapter-after-chapter to its amazing conclusion.

  4. Quite a few of these are new to me. Then again, quite a few were published after I started high school (some after I graduated), so I wasn’t quite the right age to get into them. Jeez, saying that makes me feel old.
    Thanks for sharing!
