Top Ten Tuesday: Books from my Childhood/Teen Years

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish and it's a way to share what you're loving in list form. The topic changes every week, so there is always something new to discover!
This week's topic is:  Top Ten Books from my Childhood/Teen Years That I Would Love to Revisit.  As a rule, I do not like to revisit books often because it takes away from reading/discovering new books.  However, these are some books that I have read again as an adult and will probably do so in the future.

Wait Till Helen Comes by Mary Downing Hahn
Gone with the Wind by Margaret Mitchell

Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry by Mildred D. Taylor

Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak

Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

Little Critter Series by Mercer Mayer

I know this is eleven books, but oh well. 

What are some of your favorite reads from your childhood or teenage years?

Also, look for next week's post:  Top Ten Books I've Recently Added to my TBR List.

Happy reading!


  1. I have Where the Sidewalk Ends on my list too! I still have so many of those poems memorized!! The crocodile went to the dentist, and sat down in the :)

  2. I love how you put Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark! I completely forgot about that book. So many terrifying scary stories. Great list!

    1. I used to love all things horror and this was definitely one of my first forays into that genre. It scared the bejesus out of me!

  3. I totally remember reading Where the Wild things are when I was little, makes me feel all nostlagic and emotional!
    Here is my TTT:

  4. I thought about including Charlotte Doyle in my list as well. Such a good book. I totally forgot about Wait Till Helen Comes! I love the fact that these lists make me remember books I've forgotten. Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie

    1. Agreed! I loved this topic of TTT and have been able to remember so many great books while perusing other blogs. Thanks for visiting!
