Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly blog meme ran by The Broke and the Bookish. I always felt like I’d missed out on loads of good top ten Tuesday topics having started so late so this week’s theme is a brilliant one. This week we can choose any of the past topics we like. I’ve chosen the Top Ten Childhood Favourites as reading was a huge part of my childhood. This was maybe the easiest top ten list I’ve ever written.
Probably my all time favourite book when I was younger. Enid Blyton is a classic children’s author and I was enthralled with her different lands at the top of the magical tree!
This had to be on everybody’s list. I’ve never met a child who disliked this book.
I’ve probably said enough about this series whilst this blog has been going. I was addicted to it when I was younger (down to queuing for the final installment dressed in a cloak and wand!). I still love it now in fact!
I loved the first few books in this series when I was younger. Unfortunately they can’t have been that great as I never got any further!
These little guys used to fascinate me! I read this book so many times that the cover fell off. I think I’ve still got it somewhere actually!
Roald Dahl was by far my favourite author when I was younger and Matilda was my favourite character. I always thought of her as similar to me because she was addicted to reading like I was.
Owning a chocolate factory was every child’s dream. There was more to this book than that though. Willy Wonka was an extremely disturbing character and this book is quite dark when you think about it!
I remember being absorbed in this for a few weeks when I was at high school. I used to carry it around with me constantly and read it whenever I got a chance.
Yep another Roald Dahl book! This was another of my favourites that I reread over and over again.
Another of my favourite series’ from my childhood. As you can tell, I was obsessed with fantasy and magic!
What were your favourite childhood books?
