Top 10 Tuesday: Books I Wish I Read as a Child

Top 10 Tuesday is a weekly meme, hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl

Since I started blogging I have caught up on some children’s books that I didn’t read back when I was growing up. I’ve also added to this list since I became a Mommy, three years ago. In today’s TTT, we are talking about books we wish we had read as a child.

Books I have read as an adult

Nancy Drew by Carolyn Keene

The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burett

Pollyanna by Eleanor H. Porter

Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbitt

Frog and Toad by Arnold Lobel

Children’s Books on my TBR

Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers

Rainbow Valley by L.M. Montgomery

Ramona Quimby by Beverly Cleary

The complete Little House Series by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Have you read any of these books? What books did you wish you had read as a child? Let me know in the comments.

  1. Every title a winner. I’m particularly fond of Tuck Everlasting (first read at 17, after seeing the movie — love them both equally for different reasons, but I think I’m actually glad I didn’t read it any younger) and the Little House series. And I know I loved Ramona Quimby as a little kid, but it was so long ago that I can’t remember a single specific detail.

    1. Wasn’t the movie Tuck Everlasting beautiful? I’d love to see it again as its been a long time since I first watched it. There was a video series of Ramona Quimby in the early 90s or late 80s I believe. Or at least I think it was Ramona.. I could be getting it mixed up with another series.. Thank you for commenting.


  2. Ooh Nancy Drew! I’ll admit even as an adult I sometimes feel like going back and re- reading some of those. 🙂 I read a few as a kid. And some of the other series like those.
