Hi Guys! This post is going to be about the books and series that I loved reading when I was a child and young teen. These are the books that I loved and read before I read the Hunger Games and really got into reading. A couple of these books have been mentioned in my favourite author’s post which can be found here.
The first books that I read were the Magic Faraway Tree series by Enid Blyton. This was the first time that I was properly introduced to fantasy. After reading this series I read more of Enid Blyton’s books such as the Wishing Chair collection which was in my opinion similar to the Magic Faraway Tree. This story and the characters have stuck with me and I would really recommend that everyone read this.
The next books are by Roald Dahl and I read them because they were class reads in primary school. I first read The Twits which I enjoyed and thought was funny. Many of Roald Dahl books that I read were really funny and enjoyable which is why I think that I continued to read them. I also read The Witches and James and the Giant Peach because of class reading. However, I chose to read The BFG and Matilda by myself and also really enjoyed them.
The last book was the first hard-hitting book that I read and that is Once by Moris Glietzman. This book is set during World War 2 and was the first book that caused me to cry and feel for the characters. I also had read the second book in this series, called Then. I think I reread these 2 books 3 times in a row because I loved them so much. Once again this story has stuck with me.
