10 Books From My Childhood That I’d Love To Revisit
I really enjoyed this week’s TTT, I remembered books that I’d totally forgotten about!
Goodnight Mister Tom was the first book that came to mind. I remember our teacher reading it to us in primary school. It’s definitely a book I’d love to revisit.
I used to read Just So Stories with my Dad. I seem to remember The Elephant’s Child being my most-read of the stories.
The first of two Roald Dahl books I want to reread, The Witches. I don’t remember much from it to be honest and that needs to be rectified!
Another book we read as a class in primary school, another story that I remember very little (no pun intended *groan*) about, The Borrowers.
A book from my teenage years, we studied Sunset Song in school. I’ve read it once since then but I’d love to read it again, along with the rest of the A Scots Quair.
The second of my Roald Dahl picks, George’s Marvellous Medicine is a book I remember reading to myself at bedtime. I loved it!
I read Flowers for Algernon in English class in my teenage years. If I’m honest, I hated reading literature for English, it put me off reading for pleasure for several years. I feel I owe it to this book to read it again.
I recall Mum buying a copy of Flour Babies for me on the recommendation of her friends. It’s another book that I remember surprisingly little about, except that I enjoyed it.
Of Mice and Men is the first book that I remember taking everywhere with me as a teenager. Any chance I got to read it, I did. It was one of the rare exceptions of books I had to study for school that I didn’t irrationally dislike.
So that’s it, my Top 10. I could have filled the list with 10 Roald Dahl novels but I restrained myself!
