My love for reading started from an early age with my dad reading the Hobbit to me before I went to bed. Some of the books I read throughout my childhood are still some of my favourite reads today. Narrowing down this list was hard but here are some of my top books from my childhood!
Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl
I loved all of Dahls books but Fantastic Mr Fox was my all time favourite. I love his writing style and still have a copy of this book floating around along with most of his other books.
The Illustrated Mum by Jacqueline Wilson
Maybe not one of her more popular books but I loved this one when I was a Kid. It maybe resonated with me more as at the time I was having troubles with my mum and so reading books with characters that were having similar problems made me feel slightly less alone.
The Worst Witch by Jill Murphy
I read this series through primary school and absolutely fell in love with Mildred. She reminded me so much of myself, a bit ditsy and doesn’t quite fit it. The books were hilariously funny and I was also addicted to the TV show when it aired.
Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone by J K Rowling
Anyone who grew up in the Harry Potter Era will probably include them in this list. I read the first book in my last year of Primary School and was Instantly hooked. These books made a massive impact on my childhood, letting me escape to the magical world of Hogwarts. I loved growing up with these books with the writing getting more mature with every book as the readers grew up.
