Top Ten Tuesday- Freebie (Childhood Favourites)

6:46 AM

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme created by one of my favourite blogs- The Broke and the Bookish.  If you are like me and love creating lists, then this is the meme for you! This week's topic is is a freebie! Since I am a new blogger, I figured I would pick a topic that will give you some more incite in to who I am.  So here it is- my top ten childhood favourites! If you participated please leave a link to your post down below. I truly love reading, and commenting on these posts.

Top Ten Childhood Favourites

1. Nancy Drew- These were the books that all the girls in my elementary school would fight over during library time.  Seeing a row of those yellow spines brings back a lot of nostalgia! These are three were my favourites- and the ones that I keep on my shelf to this day!

2. Hardy Boys- Hardy Boys came second only to Nancy Drew when I was growing up.  I loved mysteries back then, and I still do these days.  Maybe I have Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys to thank for that!

3. Charlotte's Web- I vividly remember my dad buying me this book many years ago, and it is very special to me.  I still have that copy displayed proudly on my shelf.

4. Matilda- I was in love with both the book and the movie when I was growing up.  I felt like I could relate to her in some ways. This is definitely a book I will be reading to my future children!

5. Goosebumps- Even though they used to give me nightmares, I still really loved Goosebumps! Just thinking about them brings me back to childhood!

6. Animorphs-I was reading Animorphs around the same time as Goosebumps- and I feel the same way about both series. They terrified me and I loved it!

7. Anne of Green Gables- Did every Canadian girl worship this book, or was that just in my town? I love this one so much I have it in many different covers! Here are just a few...

8. Black Beauty- My grandfather owns a barn, and currently owns 27 horses.  I grew up around horses, and because of that I adored Black Beauty.  It is also the first book that I remember making me cry.  

9. Little Critters- My dad used to read these, as well as Berenstain Bears,  to me every single night.  I had a lot of them memorized, so I would call him out if he was tired and tried to skip a few pages!

10. The Berenstain Bears- If I had to choose my absolute favourite books as a child then I would have to choose The Berenstain Bears!

I am so excited to read your TTTs this week! I love the freebie weeks! Post yours in the comments x

  1. Great choice of topic this week! I just finished spring cleaning my room at home and found a ton of my childhood books which brought back loads of happy memories. I love Matilda and Charlotte's Web, both were books from my childhood too. I have heard loads of good things about Anne of Gables but never actually read it, I may have to check them out one day. I read a ton of Thomas the Tank Engine books when I was a kid, I had masses of them! Happy Reading! :)

    1. I love coming across old books! My brother loved Thomas the Tank Engine books as well! Completely forgot about those!

  2. I love Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables. Let me add Little Women to my list. ;-)

    1. I didn't read Little Women until I was older unfortunately! But my mom and I watched the movie all the time! We still do once a year.

  3. Nancy Drew was my favorite growing up. She might still be one of my favorites actually. Oh, and I can't believe I haven't read Matilda yet, but I will..hopefully someday soon.. :) Great list, and thanks for stopping by my TTT earlier.

    1. Thank you! Matilda is a must for book lovers!

  4. I LOVE this topic. All of these (except Animorphs) are books I read and loved as a child as well. The Berenstain Bears were my absolute favorites. I spent a lot of hours designing my own treehouse home in my mind and on paper :)

    Happy TTT!

    1. Yay I love finding other people who loved The Berenstain Bears!

  5. I love this topic! Black Beauty, Charlotte's Web and Matilda were all among my favourite books when I was younger too!

  6. I loved Black Beauty and Charlotte's Web when I was little, but Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Little Princess was my FAVOURITE. Until Harry Potter came along, of course!
