Top Ten Tuesday (4)

December 6, 2011



I am participating in Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! Each week, there is a specific topic for a top ten list.

This weeks topic is:
Top ten childhood faves


Took me a while to think of these. I noticed a bit of a pattern here... there are a fair few action books. Interesting.
These aren't really in any order, either. Apart from the first two. The rest are pretty much the order I thought of them.


1. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

No explanation needed..


2. The Song of the Lioness Quartet by Tamora Pierce

I started reading this one say with two friends, during our library lesson. I ended up reading the whole series. Loved it. I want to re-read these!


3. A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket

I loved these. I read up to the eleventh book, which was the only one I bought.


4. Deltora's Quest series by Emily Rodda

Incredible! And we had the illustrator of the book covers come and speak to our school. He did a demonstration of his airbrush works and they are amazing!


5. Rowan of Rin series by Emily Rodda

I don't remember too much about this series, but I do remember wanting to write after reading the first book. This would be my earliest inspiration to start writing fiction.


6. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson

Such a sad story. I really enjoyed the movie, as well.


7. Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

I was in LOVE with this book. I have read the second and own the third, but I am not very motivated to continue. The first one, though was incredible.


I think I will have to leave it at 7. I can't think of any more..

Tell me about your childhood faves!


How about you? What books make you really emotional?
