BookBlogWriMo #6 – #TBT Fave Childhood Books


This one is so much fun! My favourite childhood books?

I’m going on the assumption that this is pre-secondary school type books. Here’s a sample of what I remember loving reading:

I was really into any book that had a focus on animals or exaggerated characterisation (like in The Twits). I mean, Roald Dahl still is right up there, I think, for kids books. But I think the ‘Sophie’ series was most precious to me. I loved the character. She broke expected gender roles, and I think that’s a difficult things to pull off in younger fiction. Sophie, and her snail, rocks!

What about you? Which books shaped your childhood?




YA writer. Epic reader. Professional procrastinator.

  1. I’ve never read any of these! XD I’ve heard of Saddle Club, but I never read it. A lot of the books you listed I haven’t even heard of, haha. But they remind me of another book I was obsessed with as a kid: Corduroy. I loved that book ^-^

    1. It’s interesting isn’t it? I mean, I got some of these books from my school library, and others from the local bookstore.. so really, our childhoods are shaped by whatever the local haunts had in stock! 😮
