Top Ten Books From My Childhood That I Would Love To Revisit


Top Ten Tuesday2

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. There are so many books that I’ve enjoyed reading as a child that I would love to reread as an adult. I’m wondering if they would hold up as rereads and whether I would like them just as much. Some of the titles that I would love to revisit are:

The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe The BFG Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH Harriet the Spy From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil A Wrinkle in Time A Ring of Endless Light The Giver The Tombs of Atuan Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I wonder when my huge TBR would let me go back to these old favorites for a reread? What about you, what are some of your childhood or teen books would you love to read again?

  1. Awesome books! Some of these made my list too. C.S. Lewis, L’Engle, and Konigsburg were some of my favorites. Love seeing these book covers again!

    • Good to know we share some favorites! Those book covers look so old school but they were the editions that I had. It’s fun to see them and be reminded of reading them as a child.

  2. The BFG was one of my favorite Roald Dahl books! And I loved The Chronicles of Narnia, and Harry Potter, of course. Kind of makes me want to reread! 😉

    • We talked about Roald Dahl when you were here in Singapore, right? 🙂 Love his books! Narnia is also an old favorite. I discovered Harry Potter later than the others in this list, started reading that series in high school.

  3. From the Mixed Up Files – loved that book and read it to my daughter. And Mrs. Frisby and the Rats – there was a cartoon of that one that my daughter loved and watched over and over. You know, I was over 40 when I first read Harry Potter and loved it completely.

    • I don’t think I’ve ever seen that cartoon of Mrs. Frisby! It would have been fun to watch. I can still remember reading Harry Potter in high school – my mom got me the first four books that were out. And then I had to wait for the next releases up until college.

  4. Nice list of books!! The Giver & The BFG are awesome reads… I’ve yet to read A Wrinkle in Time though, but plan to this year for the 2015 Banned Book Reading Challenge.

    Here’s a link to my TTT post for this week:

    Happy reading!!

    • I hope the movie adaptation of The Giver doesn’t disappoint! I also hope you enjoy reading A Wrinkle in Time, loved reading Madeleine L’Engle’s when I was young.
