Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the lovely The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they come up with a list for us to complete. This week the topic are the top ten books from my childhood or teen years that I’d love to revisit.

The Demon Headmaster- Gillian Cross– I recently reread this book for University and I still loved it as much as I did as a young child. I have fond memories of my sister reading this book (amongst many she read to me).
Matilda- Roald Dahl- It wouldn’t be a post about my favourite books as a child/teen without Roald Dahl. His books WERE my childhood. Matilda is one of my absolute favourites!
Anything Enid Blyton. She was one of my favourites! Her books may feel a little dated now, but I think children still enjoy them!
I adored the Goosebumps series! Just SO good!
My sister isn’t responsible for getting me into Jacqueline Wilson as a child. She had influenced a lot of my reading choices, but definitely not Jacqueline Wilson. She was far too mature for that when Jacqueline Wilson was gaining massive popularity. I still see Jacqueline’s books in the classroom and it makes my heart so happy! 😀
However, she totally influenced The Babysitter’s Club. I have so much nostalgia for this series. ❤
Another sisterly recommendation was Sweet Valley High. These covers look oh so dated now!
I started the Harry Potter series in my teens. I grew up with it!
Both To Kill A Mockingbird and Lord of The Flies were my English Literature reads when I was fifteen. I absolutely adored both of them and have revisited them since. I’m sure I’ll revisit them again in the future.
