Top Ten Tuesday from Broke and Bookish Blog
My top ten childhood favorites were a bit hard to narrow down, but I think I did a pretty good job deciding.
1 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (actually the entire Harry Potter Series)
I grew up with these books, and they are still important to me today. When I got book 1 I was the same age as Harry, and each year as a new book came out, we grew up together.
2 Where the Wild Things Are
This is the book I remember being my first favorite! I had the book memorized.
3 Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (and Through the Looking Glass)
These two books mean so much to me, that I collect a ridiculous amount of Alice memorabilia and one of my entire legs from hip to foot is tattooed in pinups from Wonderland.
4 The Giving Tree
This book is actually really, really sad, but I loved it as a child.
5 Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day
This book makes you feel so much better about your own bad day.
6 Winnie the Pooh
Who didn’t love Winnie the Pooh as a child?!? I used to love the cartoon, and when I saw this in the library I knew I had to read it. My room was even decorated as Winnie the Pooh, and I had a Pooh Birthday Party when I was 11.
7 The Bad Beginning (the entire series of Unfortunate Events)
These books were so good, all 13 of them! The movie with Jim Carey was great also!
8 Love you Forever
I remember my mom reading this to me when I was little! Aww!
9 The Gnome from Nome
This is the only book I remember my dad reading to me as a kid. I loved all of the Serendipity books that I had.
10 Ella Enchanted
This was my first experience with a retold fairy tale, and I was hooked! I still love alternate fairy tales today!
