I came across this Top 10 theme on The Broke and the Bookish and thought it would make a nice “getting to know me” post. I started book blogging last month; it’s been different. As with any book, a new world is opening that I never knew existed. As my archives show, this blog has gone through quite a few changes. For the past 5-ish years I’ve been posting poetry, random thoughts, and devotionals. My poetry seemed to draw more attention so I stuck to poetry which was great. I’ve gained some great and supportive followers
For the past 5-ish years I’ve been posting poetry, random thoughts, and devotionals. My poetry seemed to draw more attention so I stuck to poetry which was great. I’ve gained some wonderful, supportive followers and I’m grateful for them.
Last year though, I decided to venture off in pursuit of publishing my poetry. Sadly, most of my favourite pieces are on this blog and publishers aren’t too keen on that. I took a break from my blog but missed it. And thus the book blog was born. I’ll still post poetry from time to time – Book Spine Poetry is a thing after all. I digress.
My Top Five Childhood Favourites
#5 Life Expectancy by Dean Koontz: I enjoyed Velocity so much that I had to get another Dean Koontz read. Life Expectancy was intriguing.
#4 Velocity by Dean Koontz: I had read way too many Sweet Valley High and SVU books. I needed to move on to fiction that was more substantial. I chose Dean Koontz.
#3 The Children Next Door by Jean Ure: A story about a young girl who moves to a new town and befriends two mysterious children who live next door.
#2 To Kill a Mocking bird by Harper Lee: Need a say anything. A classic told through the eyes of children playing their little games.
#1 Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery: Green Gables has always been my escape. I’ve read it countless times and always cry. Anne of Green Gables is the timeless tale of an orphan girl whose wildest dreams are coming true. Read it with a box of tissues.
That’s my Tuesday Top 5. What were your favourite childhood books? Have you read any of the books on my list? What were your thoughts? Let me know in the Comments below.
