Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome people at The Broke and the Bookish
This week’s topic is: Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit
1. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton
This is the book that solidified my love for reading. I would love to experience that again.
2. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz
These were so scary and soooo good! I also felt so brave when my elementary school librarian warned me about it.
3. Weeping Willow by Ruth White
I read this in 8th grade, I think. It’s stuck with me ever since.
4. Pet Semetery by Stephen King
I went through a HUGE SK stage in middle school and this one is still my favorite.
5. Where the Wild Things Are by Marcus Sendak
I adored this book as a child. It probably doesn’t really belong on this list since I get to read it to Finn at least 3 times a week.
6. Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
I have so much love for this book. While my experiences in late middle school/high school were nothing like the MC’s this book got me through a lot of tough times.
7. Guilty Pleasure by Laurel K. Hamilton
Oddly enough my middle school library had a nice collection of Anita Blake books. The series went to crap eventually but those first 7 or 8 books were so awesome!
8. The Green Mile by Stephen King
One of my teachers loaned me her special edition set in 8th grade and I devoured it.
9. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
This is another middle school read. I’d love to revisit it as an adult.
10. The Secret Garden Frances Hodgson Burnett
I loved this book so so much. I wanted to live in it.
