Top 10 Books from My Childhood That I Would Love to Revisit

This is a weekly feature created by The Broke and the Bookish. You can find out more info here!

I’ve decided to start partaking in weekly features! Exciting! I loved reading as a child, so this is definitely a topic that’s great for me (especially as I’m really keen to re-read some childhood favourites in the coming years). So here you go!

1. Jaqueline Wilson’s books. I couldn’t decided on a particular title that I’d like to revisit more than others, so I thought I would just list a couple of my favourites. So special props to Tracy Beaker, Lola Rose, Best Friends, The Diamond Girls and Kiss.

2. Roald Dahl’s books. Same as before, special props to Matilda, The Witches, The BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Twits.

3. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. This was the first series I got obsessed with when I started reading. Definitely need to revisit this one!

4. Clarice Bean by Lauren Child. I was addicted with these books back in fifth grade.

5. Judy Moody by Megan McDonald. My friend and I used to read these religiously together when I was in Primary School! (I literally just called her to find out the name – I can’t believe I forgot them!)

6. Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Absolutely loved it.

7. Little House Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. I never finished this series but my mum and I watched the television show together when I was growing up. I’d really love to read this series (and re-watch the show) at some point!

8. Students Across the Seven Seas Series by Various. I read probably 7/14 of these books growing up, and I always felt super cool when I read them because they were probably just out of my age group. I was 9 or 10 reading books where people had serious crushes and sometimes relationships?! Ohhh exciting for me. A few favourites were Spain or Shine, Getting the Boot, Heart and Salsa and Pardon My FrenchI’d just like to pick one up in the future and remember what I was actually reading.

9. The Fairy Realm Series by Emily Rodda. This book was absolutely enchanting when I was a kid. Could not tell you what it was about nowadays, but I loved it.

10. Pigs Might Fly by Emily Rodda. I read this one over and over again when I first got it from a library book sale.

    • I can’t believe I didn’t add the Delta Quest series to this list! I remember waiting to have enough money saved to go into town and buy the next one with my friends. Definitely a highlight of my childhood!
