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?
