Top Ten Tuesday…on Saturday

I apologize again. This past week was my second week of my first full-time job, so I’m still trying to figure out my time management for when I’m at home. As a result, I’ve been neglecting my blog, at least comparatively to pre-job conditions.

The last Top Ten Tuesday theme was a “pick your own” type adventure 🙂 But when I was looking at some friends’ blogs, I found Michelle had chosen to do a post about her favorite childhood reads. And I thought that was a great idea for a post. Like Michelle, I read a lot as a kid and I loved it when it was storytime at school. I am copying Michelle, and making a list of my ten favorite books from my childhood.

In no particular order…

The Search for Delicious by Natalie Babbitt

The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Edwards
any Roald Dahl books, really
Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
the Wayside School books by Louis Sachar
the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling
the Alice books (at least the first few) by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
any of the Dear America books
The Rain Catchers by Jean Thesman

the BSC series by Ann M Martin

    So many wonderful books! Talk about a trip down literary nostalgia lane! I haven’t read some of those books/authors in years (roald dahl and the sideways stories especially) but with all these great posts floating around about those favorite childhood books, I’m thinking it’s time to pay them a visit again! Thanks for a great post!

    Isn’t it fun to look back?

    Oh god, I *LOVED* Ella Enchanted. It was THE book of my childhood. I think I read it like fifty times, my copy is all old and battered. When I saw this new edition of it recently, I seriously debated getting myself a new copy haha, but there’s something about having an old copy — the first copy you read — that brings happy memories to mind 🙂
