Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We’d love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don’t have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It’s a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
This week was actually a freebie week and I choose to do my favourite books as a child. For whatever reason, I’ve been seeing a lot of posts, tweets, photots, etc, about books we loved as children and I was inspired to think back to my all time favourites when I was young. I’m 100% sure I’m missing A LOT of books here so maybe you can all help me out in the comments.
1. Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein
I’ve never been a big poem person but these poems are hilarious. Totally worth the read.
2. Nancy Drew by Carolyn Keene
I made it my life mission to read all the originals and I did!
3. Magic Treehouse Series by Mary Pope Osborne
Our librarian used to read us these books all the time. I could never wait though so I borrowed them and finished them on my own.
4. If you Give a Moose a Muffin by Laura Joffe Numeroff
The sequel to If you Give a Mouse a Cookie. I think I liked this one more because it was a moose. I’m super Canadian.
5. There’s a Wocket in my Pocket by Dr. Seuss
I read tons of Dr Seuss but this one was always my favourite I think.
6. Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park
This was probably my first ever series. I loved her to death.
7. Sideways Stories from Wayside School by Louis Sachar
I thought this was the funniest book ever when I was little. I didn’t realize there was more than one book!
8. Goosebumps by R. L. Stine
Who didn’t read these books as a kid? I don’t think I ever got around to all of them but the Night of the Living Dummy ones scared me to death.
9. Pony Pals by Jeanne Bentancourt
I was (and still am) obsessed with horses. I loved anything and everything to do with them.
10. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell
I can’t tell you how many times I read this book. I’m impressed I was so young when I read it actually.
