Top Ten Books I Wish I'd Read As A Child

This is a feature hosted by The Broke and The Bookish, this time its the "Top Ten Books I Wish I'd Read As A Child"...I loved this one it was so much fun, a few of mine are pretty hefty but I consider 12 still childlike...

10. The Voyage of The Dawn Treader- I love this book now, its  my favorite Narnia book, but I didn't read it until I was in my late teens.

  • 9. Alice in Wonderland-I'm in love with everything Alice in Wonderland its so beautiful, and I love every adaptation, I even think The Iron Fey series is sort of like it, maybe why I love its so
8.Robin McKinley's version of Beauty and The Beast, Beauty, this is my all time favorite Disney movie, I also still haven't read Robin McKinley's version, but I wish I'd done it then too.
  • 7.The Lemony Snicket books I love the movies, and the books, so I wish I'd read it forever ago, but alas I did not. :(
6.Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman it would have made childhood so much better, I was such a weird little kid..
  • 5. Harold and The Purple Crayon, I am in love with this book now, I would have loved it then too.
4. Fancy Nancy, have you read this? If not do it, now!
  • 3.Madeline, so beautiful the books, the movies, the show..I love it all, now that I'm 21??
2.Goodnight Moon, its the best children's book I've ever read, period.
  • 1.Sector 7, the pictures are what drew me in, being taken away by the clouds is just AWESOME

Yes on Lemony Snicket! Love him now, but would have adored him as a kid. Have you read "The Latke Who Couldn't Stop Screaming?"

The Narnia series is one in general I wish I would have been aware of as a kid, they would have been great books to grow up with.

I didn't read The Chronicles of Narnia until college, but that was the right time for me. I don't regret having read them so "late" at all! =)

It is beyond cool to see Neverwhere on your list, by the way. ;-)

Good Night Moon is a great choice- one of my daughter's favorites. Narnia is too!
