Top 10 Books From My Childhood That I Would Love To Revisit

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created by The Broke and the Bookish (click the link to visit them) who pick a different topic each week.

The topic for this week is: Top 10 books from my childhood (Or teen years) that I would love to revisit

A lot of the books I read as a child and going into my teens have stayed with me, and I revisit them often, so I found this week’s topic quite tough, but here goes…

  1.  Naughty Amelia Jane ~ Enid Blyton : I’ve been looking for a nice copy of this series for ages, I remember loving it as a child and I’ve not read it since.
  2.  

  3. I Don’t Want To!~ Bel Mooney: This is another one that I remember vaguely from my childhood but haven’t been able to find a copy since.
  4.  

  5.  Green Eggs and Ham ~ Dr. Seuss: I’d like to read this again, I don’t know why I don’t own it.
  6.  

  7.   The Magic Faraway Tree ~ Enid Blyton: I have a couple of books in this series but haven’t read them for years. Need to get on that!

  9.  Unknown unicorn book: When I was at junior school I always wanted books from the book people that came round every now and then, but usually I wasn’t allowed. However, on one occasion my mum gave in because I fell in love a beautiful picture book about a unicorn who gets lost in a forest. I remember the cover of that book to this day but I’ve never been able to find it as I can’t remember the title or author. It makes me sad every time I think about it. Any ideas? It must have been around 1990

  11. The Chronicles of Narnia ~ C.S Lewis: So I read Narnia a lot, but I have a confession, I’ve never read the last book in the series, ever! I really should, but I’m scared that it’ll break me. I’ve also only read The Silver Chair once so I need to revisit that one too.
  12.  

  13. Point Horror ~ Various: These books were such a staple of my reading growing up. They are what made reading cool for me. Over the past couple of years I’ve been building up my collection again but I haven’t read most of them since I was about 12.
  14.  

  15. Knightmare: The Dragon’s Lair ~ Dave Morris: I wish I still had a copy of this. I loved those choose-your-own-adventure books. I’d like to revisit this one to see if it was as fun as I remember.
  16.  

  17. Robinson Crusoe ~ Daniel Defoe: This was one of the few books I was made to read at school that I actually enjoyed. I re-read it again at uni about ten years ago but after recently reading The Martian, I’d like to give it another whirl.
  18.  

  19. Secret Vampire ~ L.J Smith: I remember getting this free with a magazine when I was a young teen. It’s probably what set of my vampire obsession! I think I still have it somewhere, I must find it!

  1. You enjoyed Robinson Crusoe?! It was one of the most boring books I have ever read! Not sure we can still be friends 😉

  2. My daughter loved a unicorn book called Into the Land of the Unicorns by Bruce Coville… but that’s probably not the one you’re thinking of. (She must have read it a dozen times.) The Secret Vampire is part of the Night World series, right? I read them all!

  3. I edited the topic so it wasn’t just books I wanted to re-read. some I’d love to, of course…but nostalgia means they might not be as good as I remember! Narnia is on my list, lovelovelove. I wonder if the unicorn book was by Bruce Coville? I used to check that out at the library a lot! Although it’s not a picture book. Um, maybe by Stephen Cosgrove? He had great picture books that I loved, and quite a few with unicorns! Some with a unicorn and the Princess Morgan!

  4. I clearly missed out on some good ones growing up! I loved RL Stine’s Fear Street books. I think I would have loved the Point Horror books!

    • I think they’re basically the same. R.L Stine wrote most of my favourite Point Horrors. They’ve lost a lot of their impact now, but they’re still fun to read.
