First of all, Merry Christmas! I hope everyone is having a great day with their loved ones! I'm sending all of you Christmas thoughts through telekinesis as your gift... hehe... And that wasn't funny. Anyway, have a great day and I hope everyone got some good books to read.
So this week was a freebie. I choose the first thing on the list of past Top Ten Tuesdays to do because it interested me. I love rambling about my favorite childhood books so prepare yourselves. Also... I did cheat. I have 13 books here because I got so excited about this topic *grins sheepishly*.
The Song of the Lioness Series by Tamora Pierce: I loved these books. A lot! I don't even know how many times I reread them... Just look at the book cover and you'll see why. It's about this girl, Alanna, who wanted to be a knight, not, a lady. So she disguises herself as a boy and goes to a school for knights.
The Harry Potter Series by J. K. Rowling: These books were/ are my favorite books in the world. I can not say enough good things about these books! I go back and reread them to this day.
Ella Enchanted by Gail Levine: This is a book about a girl who was cursed by a fairy. Her free will was taken away and she goes on a quest to get it back, meeting all sorts of "people" along the way.
Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins: These books are by the same author who wrote the Hunger Games. It's about a boy who goes underground to save his sister.
Into the Wild by Erin Hunter: I loved this series! I used to pretend I was one of the cats from the book and play in the woods. It's a series about wild cats and how they survive.
Matilda by Roald Dahl: Matilda was my favorite character when I was younger. She was so smart, she could move objects with her mind.
The Report Card by Andrew Clements: This is another book about a smart person that I loved. I liked how she told everyone that grades don't matter etc. because I do believe that. grades are very subjective.
The On The Run Series by Gordon Korman: These books... I can't describe how much I loved them. I reread them over and over again. I want to go back and reread them again, to be honest. They're about these siblings whose parents are convicted terrorists. The children decide to go out and prove that their parents are innocent. I thought it was so bad-ass how they dodged the police.
Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer: These books are stupendous! They're about Sherlock Holmes sister. She doesn't understand why she has to be a lady and runs away to solve mysteries on her own.
May Bird Series by Jodi Anderson: I remember my excitement after the latest in this series appeared at the library. I'd curl up in an armchair and read for several hours. I used to wish I was May Bird because she went on such fantastic adventures and had the best friend (he had a pumpkin head) and an adorable cat.
The Children of the Red King Series by Jenny Nimmo: I devoured all of these books. They're about a kid who can talk to photos. He's sent to a boarding school because of this and goes on all kinds of adventures.
The Missing Series by Margaret Haddix: These books have a mystery in them and are about time travelers. What more could a kid need?
Lady Grace Mysteries by "Grace Cavendish": This is about a girl who solved mysteries. They were really addicting books and I could often be found reading them.
Shadow Children by Margaret Haddix: The plot of these books fascinated me. They're about a world where 3rd children are illegal. I couldn't help but cry at the end of the first book yet I kept reading them anyway.
ps: I love hearing from you guys, so please comment if you get the chance. I'll reply as soon as I can!
