Random Thought πŸ€”

Tell us about books from your childhood that you still love until now. How did you discover it?

I have always loved to read. As a kid I always had a book in my hand (growing up with four sisters and my parents on a limited budget, money was pretty tight.)

So my escape was to dive into a book.

So I thought I’d relive and give you my top ten childhood books. Let me know if you had read any of them growing up.

My to Ten childhood books (in no particular order) …..

  1. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson
  2. Stig of the Dump by Clive King.
  3. The Secret Seven series by Enid Blyton.
  4. The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis.
  5. Famous Five Series by Enid Blyton.
  6. Charlotte’s Web by E. B. White.
  7. Watership Down by Richard Adams.
  8. Fairy Tales by The Brothers Grimm .
    James and the Giant Peach by Roald Dahl.
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.
  • I’m sure I could have added more. But that’s enough to be going on with. And now I’ve spent time thinking about them, I’m tempted to find cheap copies and read them all over again πŸ˜‰ simpler times when I was growing up.

    Hi I’m an avid reader. I also write reviews for the books I read. Come in and say hi. You can find me on GoodReads, Bookbub, and NetGalley πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ’» I also review on an awesome site The Reading Cafe (run by Barb and Sandy) So ........ More about me 🀨 I’m almost 50 🀫 I’ve been married (for 27 years) I have a 30 year old son. I had a daughter, I lost her a week before her 21st birthday πŸ˜₯ and it’s been 5 years since she’s been gone (and not a day goes by that I don’t miss her) I work as a salad πŸ₯— chef πŸ‘©β€πŸ³ in a restaurant, haven’t been there long (before that I worked in Tesco) a large supermarket in the UK. I also like to make craft items (and if your really lucky) and I’ll try to post my efforts on here πŸ˜‰ My daughter loved butterflies (so part of my blog name is dedicated to her) I’ve taken on her love of butterflies (I have several tattoos) so I’m probably going to throw quiet a few butterflies on here πŸ˜‰ I LOVE PENGUINS 🐧 πŸ’•so I’m also going to be putting a few on here (my library holds a few) πŸ˜‰ <img src=""
