Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and is a chance for everyone to get to know fellow bloggers and share lists. I love lists. Every week is a different list.
This week is Top Ten Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit.
This is probably the hardest list to write, because even as a child I loved books. Although definitely not as much as I do now. So here is a list of the various books I loved as a child, or at least the ones that I still remember as vividly as when I first read them or had them read to me.
- Son of Black Beauty by Phyllis Briggs
- My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards
- The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
- Tarka the Otter by Henry Williamson
- Ballet Shoes by Noel Streatfeild
- The Twins at St. Clare's by Enid Blyton
- What Katy Did by Susan Coolidge
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling
- Katie Morag Delivers the Mail by Mairi Hedderwick
- Tim Catchamouse by Sheila K. McCullagh
