Express Yourself - Childhood reading


This week's question for the Express Yourself meme (hosted by Dani and Jackie) is: What books did you enjoy as a child?

Apparently my memory is really terrible, since I can't remember what I read when I was really little, so I'm going with what I read when I was a teenager. Most of these I still read now:

- The Harry Potter series, of course. It's a lifelong obsession.
- I used to love stuff by Michael Morpurgo, Cool and Kensuke's Kingdom in particular
- Malorie Blackman was also a favourite, Dead Gorgeous being the book I read the most of hers.
- I've read most books by Sarah Dessen, and loved Last Chance and Just Listen.
- Looking for Alaska by John Green. I've yet to read any of his other stuff, and I really need to!

Not exactly childhood reading, but it'll do :)

  6. Very good list! I have read the Harry Potter series too!! They were fun, amazing and I could never put them down. When I was still waitressing...pt time at a country club in the evenings....I had my supervisor make my name badge to read "Hedwig"! Lol!! That is how much I was into Harry Potter.

    But, when I was really young, the first book I ever read was "Star Girl", by Henry Winterfield. I still have that book to this day! I was also into all of the Nancy Drew, Carolyn Keene mystery books, and my parents allowed me to have the book club to get them!

    It is amazing what we have all read and liked as children, teens, and adults young and old!!

  10. I know you mentioned other great books but after Harry Potter I'm not sure I paid attention... the shame. I'm just a little obsessed with HP lol

  11. I've never read any of the Harry Potter books. I decided after watching the movies that I had two choices I either read the book or watched the movie- but not both because it just messes it up. LOL
