Top Ten Tuesday: Childhood Favorites… But Older!

Happy Tuesday!! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share ten of our childhood favorites. Instead, I’m going to put a bit of a twist on it and share ten books I read as an adult that are usually people’s childhood favorites. Surprisingly, there are a lot of them!

What books did you read later in life than many other bookworms? What were your favorite books when you were a kid? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Great twist on the topic. For me basically every book aimed at kids I’m reading later than every one else. Never really used to read as a kid and only got into it way later. Even Harry Potter I read for the first time a little over a year ago. Matilda is actually one book I did read! For my ttt I twisted the topic as well, into books I want my future child to read πŸ™‚

  2. I still adore Anne of Green Gables! When I first read the entire series at age 8 or 9, the first book was my favorite. As I’ve grown older and am in more of the situations that Anne is facing in the later books, I’ve found that my favorite has changed to the ones I relate to more now. I really love how much I’ve been able to grow with them and it’s still my favorite series for that reason.

      1. There are 9 total. The first three are the best in my opinion. She wrote some of them out of order and at different periods in her life, so some of the later ones have a very different feel. They’re still very good though!

  3. Omg Tuck Everlasting and George’s Marvelous Medicine! Can’t believe I forgot about those books. Looking back on childhood memories, there were really so many good books. I’m so curious what it’d be like to read them now. Great post!
