Top Ten Tuesday: Childhood Favourites

Top Ten Tuesday New

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme that is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s topic is Childhood Favourites. I think lots of us will be reminiscing about the stories we were introduced to as children. All of these books hold a special place in my heart.

A Little Princess

I adored this charming riches to rags tale. The film adaptation is brilliant too!

I still have my copy of this colourful picture book featuring Paddington Bear.

Harry Potter series

Harry Potter

I had to include Harry Potter on this list! I read the books as a child and teenager, so it felt like I was growing up with Harry, Ron and Hermione.

Little Women

I first read Little Women at the age of eleven alongside my year 5 English class and have loved it ever since.

Black Beauty

Black Beauty is a heartfelt story and a must-read for animal lovers.

Charlotte’s Web

I remember my first-year teacher reading this book to our class as we sat cross-legged on the floor. Charlotte’s Web gave me all the feels!
