BookBlogWriMo | Favorite Childhood Books

Welcome to Day 6 of BookBlogWriMo!

Today we will be taking you into a trip back in time to when we were just little bookworms. As we all know, reading is a lifelong addiction habit. Most of the time it starts when you are young and slowly progresses until you are digging yourself out of an avalanche of books.

To get to the point, today's topic is....

Favorite Childhood Books

The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1)

The Harry Potter books and movies were basically my entire childhood. I remember reading the books as an elementary schoolchild and wishing I was a part of something as exciting as the Wizarding World. This series really opened the door the adventures books can take you on, and for that I will be forever be thankful.

The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams

The Velveteen Rabbit

I honestly do not remember much about this story beside the fact that it was so utterly heartwarming and wonderful. I think this is one of those books that everyone should read as a child, it's just so beautiful and touching.

The Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park

This sassy kindergartner was my idol from first grade to second grade. She was soooo obnoxious funny. I also loved that she kept a journal. Now that I think of it, Junie B. might have been the first to inspire me to be a writer. I loved reading her journal, especially seeing her mistakes. I mean, if Junie B. Jones could make mistakes, then it was okay if I did. 

Junie B. Jones and the  Stupid Smelly Bus (Junie B. Jones, #1)

The Magic Treehouse series by Mary Pope Osbourne

These books started my love of time travel and history. I loved all of them and I always thought that the titles were so catchy (alliteration is awesome). These books taught me that even the most mundane things, like a treehouse, can be magical. Also, I learned that books can transport you where ever you want to go.

Dinosaurs Before Dark (Magic Tree House, #1)

The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis

I read this books later in my childhood, and I still enjoy them today. This series was my first adventure into the realm of fantasy, and I have never looked back since. 

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe (Chronicles of Narnia, #1)

  1. Loving this series and looking forward to reading the lot of them! Harry Potter is first on a lot of peoples lists, but sadly that was one series I only have recently started. I also loved the Magic of the Treehouses books when I was little!
