March 24: Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit

I split this list between childhood and teen.

anne green gables

1. Anne of Green Gables; L.M. Montgomery. Who doesn’t love a dreamer?


2. Bunnicula; James Howe. Vampire bunny!

golden compass

3. The Golden Compass; Phillip Pullman. A grand conspiracy, and some truly evil bad guys.


4. Inkheart; Cornelia Funke. Magic and writing.

to kill a mockingbird

5. To Kill a Mockingbird; Harper Lee. A story about justice.

pippi longstocking

6. Pippi Longstocking; Astrid Lindgren. A very special girl.

trumpet of swan

7. The Trumpet of the Swan; E.B. White. Just the right amount of hopeful.

About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.

    I love that you put Bunnicula on your list! I almost put it on mine but there were just too many others ahead of it.

      A lot of my absolute favorites didn’t make this list because they don’t need revisiting. Books like Matilda and The Secret Garden get read every year or so.

  2. To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my favorite books of all time! Oooo. Where the Sidewalk Ends! I didn’t even think about that one, but I would love to reread it too.
    My TTT!

  3. Ah, Bunnicula. Just reread that this last Halloween, and I think it was even funnier as an adult. And I still have one of the poems from Where the Sidewalk Ends memorized.

    Great list! I love pretty much all your choices.

  4. I think I might be the only Canadian who hasn’t read Anne of Green Gables (and in that respect, how can I call myself a Canadian?!). Ha, I’m such a fail.

    Joey via. thoughts and afterthoughts.

    I considered putting To Kill a Mockingbird, but I’ve re-read it as an adult..and enjoyed it more every time.
