Top Ten Tuesday – Childhood Faves

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  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.


where the wild things are Where the Wild Things Are


This is the book I remember being my first favorite! I had the book memorized.


3 alice in wonderland 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 treeThe Giving Tree

This book is actually really, really sad, but I loved it as a child.


5 alexander and the terrible, horrible, very bad dayAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, Very Bad Day


This book makes you feel so much better about your own bad day.


6 winnie the pooh  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: or, orphans! 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 foreverLove you Forever

I remember my mom reading this to me when I was little! Aww!


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 Ella Enchanted


This was my first experience with a retold fairy tale, and I was hooked! I still love alternate fairy tales today!
