It has be been a long, cold, and a non-stop snowy winter for us in Massachusetts, and I have been taking a little mini break from the blog. I just wanted to let you all know that it shall be restarting up again, and I have plenty of reviews to post about for some great books I have read while in hibernation. For now here is our Top Ten Tuesday of the week.
Top Ten Tuesday is a book blog meme created by the girls at The Broke and the Bookish . This week we are discussing the top ten books we would like to revisit from our childhood. Here are my picks:
1. The Sweet Valley High Series- Francine Pascal
I absolutely LOVED reading this series. I would walk out of the library with at least 3-4 every time.
2. Anne of Green Gables and the rest of the series – L.M. Montgomery
Probably one of my all time favorite book/series. I actually did do a re-visit of this series a few years ago, but I would read them again in a heartbeat.
3. The Awakening- Kate Chopin
There is just something about this book that really touched me.
4. The Babysitters Club- Ann M. Martin
These were such fun reads, I remember wanting to be in their club so much when I was a kid. 🙂
5. The Chronicles of Narnia- C. S. Lewis
Who doesn’t want to believe in a magical place that can be reached by walking through your wardrobe?
6. Alice in Wonderland- Lewis Carroll
Completely nuts, and I think I would have a much different point of view of the story when I read it again as an adult.
7. Shadow Castle- Marian Cockrell
This book has stuck with me since grade school and I really need to find a copy of it and read it again.
It also made me thinking twice about shadows.
8. Little Women- Louisa May Alcott
I wanted to be a part of this family. I wanted to be Jo.
9. The Velveteen Rabbit- Margery Williams
I can’t even properly write about how much I loved this books as a child. I always loved my stuffed animals, especially my blue bunny and this book is about that magical love you have for your toys.
10. The Time Machine- HG Wells
The first book that I read as a pre-teen that opened my eyes to the world of sci-fi books.
What are some of the books from your childhood and teen years that you would like to re-sit?
Are there any you still read even as an adult ?
