Top Ten Tuesday: Books That Represent My Childhood


Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  Each week there is a new topic and this week’s topic is a freebie, so I decided to list some of the books that I really loved when I was younger.

1) Nate the Great by Mitchell, Marjorie W., and Craig Sharmat – I convinced my brother one morning that I’d gone to a Nate the Great store and there was a new book called “Nate the Great and the Gullible Boy”. He totally bought it. Also, I always wanted pancakes while I was reading these.

2) The Magic Treehouse series by Mary Pope Osbourn – Seriously, best series ever.

3) Harriet the Spy by Louise Fitzhugh – The movie was so disappointing. I started my own notebook for a little bit, but it didn’t last unfortunately.

4) Walk Two Moons and The Wanderer by Sharon Creech – Sharon Creech was my fave author for a LONG time. I’m not sure why I was so attracted to her books, but I loved them.

5) Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo – My parents wouldn’t let us have a dog. I lived vicariously through this book.

6) Hatchet by Gary Paulsen – So much adventure!

7) Inkheart by Cornelia Funke – The first time I can really remember eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

8) Mrs. Piggle Wiggle series by Betty MacDonald – I secretly wanted to try some of these bad behavior fixes…it would be so fun to eat off of miniature plates!

9) Every Roald Dahl book – My mom read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with us, but I read The Witches, Esio Trot, James and the Giant Peach, and the Twits on my own.

10) Johnny Tremain by Esther Forbes – This book was really traumatic to me because of that one scene where he melts his fingers together, but it still stands out in my memory.
