Childhood books

I have loved reading since I was very little.I would read everywhere I went and I think I got that from my Dad who I have fond memories of sitting in his arm-chair with a book. I want to share with you my favourite books and authors. 🙂

9780001857131 The chronicles of Narnia, a big chunk of my childhood goes to these and into my adult life too. I remember listening to the audio book of the magicians nephew over and over again and loving it. I adored Aslan in the lion the witch and the wardrobe and the entire story.

download (7) The shivers books still to this day scare me to death! I love them though I adore the feel of them and when I first started reading them they were nothing I had ever read before. They were something new and exciting it was like “horror” for kids!

download (8) Anastasia Krupnik, told me it was okay to have spots, like boys, have awful clothes, strange thoughts and be a little bit nerdy 🙂 For this I thank her!

They were some of my childhood books, yes SOME! I read loads as a child! Did you spot any that were your favourites? let me know in the comments! I would love to hear about them!
