Top Ten Tuesday #25 Books From My Childhood That I Would Love to Revisit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme from The Broke and The Bookish that allows users to share their top choices of the topic of the week!

Childhood books are so imaginative and amazing! Here are some that I would love to experience again: 

1. Harry Potter by: J.K. Rowling 
I would have to be crazy to not include this. Harry Potter is technically for all ages, but I read it as a childhood and would definitely re-read the series over again. 

2. The Magic Treehouse by: Mary Pope. Osborne 
The first chapter books I read by myself! This series was so creative and really educational! 

3. The Famous Five by; Enid Blyton 
These books were so adventurous and charming, about 5 best friends solving mysteries. 

4. Half Brother by: Kenneth Oppel 
A really unique story about a teenage boy who's family takes in a gorilla. Kind of like a reversed story of Tarzan! 

5. Smile by: Raina Telgemeier 
This was such a cute graphic novel about a girl and her struggle with braces. 

6. School of Fear by: Gitty Daneshvari 
A really interesting book about children overcoming their fears. 

7. Percy Jackson by: Rick Riordan 
I will never be able to let go of these books. They really got me interested in mythology! 

8. Dork Diaries by: Rachel Renee Russell 
I used to love this series. I adored the idea of a female Diary of a Wimpy Kid. 

9. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by: Jeff Kinney 
Speaking of which, I loved this series as well! Greg made me laugh so hard! 

10. One Crazy Summer by: Rita Williams-Garcia 
A heartwarming story about three young girls moving to California to see their long-lost mother, all during the segregation of African Americans. 

What childhood books did you love?

  1. I loved Dork Diaries and The Magic Tree House Series! Love your list!


    Just looking at the covers made me feel nostalgic already! <3 I love Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Dork Diaries, Percy Jackson, and Harry Potter. I feel the need to reread them all of a sun. I love those books to bits <3 Love the books in your list, Emily :)

  3. There are some great books in there that really bring back some memories. Naturally, I loved Harry Potter and have re-read a couple of them over the past few years. I also love the Famous Five books. Those were some of the first books I ever really remember loving. Enid Blyton is one of those authors that will always have some serious nostalgia factor for me, even though I'm only 16.

    1. Enid Blyton was my favourite author. Her books were so creative!

  4. Lovely list! I've only come across Percy Jackson after joining GR (it's not that wildly popular in Hungary) so I've only read it two years ago but I loved every single book. I'm not sure I'll read the spin-off, though.

    1. The spin-off was good, but nothing like the original. Thanks Veronika!
