What a fun topic for this week’s Top Ten Tuesday! I’m telling you, this list is going to shock many of you. Like I am now, I was an avid reader as a child. I mean, I read a LOT of books. So sometimes it even surprises me how many classics I haven’t read. Now, some of these titles I have read at this point. Mostly from reading them to my boys when they were young. But, embarrassingly enough, I haven’t read them all yet. Some day…
The Secret Garden
by Frances Hodgson Burnett
A Wrinkle in Time
by Madeleine L’Engle
by Roald Dahl
Bridge to Terabithia
by Katherine Paterson
Anne of Green Gables
by L.M. Montgomery
Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
by Lewis Carroll
The Velveteen Rabbit
by Margery Williams Bianco
The Wind in the Willows
by Kenneth Grahame
The Little Prince
by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
by Johanna Spyri
Wow — I’m really surprised about The Velveteen Rabbit! That’s been one of my favorites since I was teeny-tiny. (Though as I commented on another blog, it also probably taught me to care about my stuffed animals’ feelings way too much.) Great picks all around.
Matilda was one of my favourite books when I was a kid!

I heard a rumour that The Secret Garden is being made into a film. So keep an eye out for that if you’re interested!

Same. I read like crazy as a kid, but there are a lot of books I somehow missed out on. I’ve read some as an adult (MATILDA, for instance) and I’m still a bit incredulous that they somehow were not on my book-mad radar. So weird.
I have read all of the books on your list, although not all of them were as a child.
A Wrinkle in Time was one of my favorite series when I was around 12 or so. Such a great read — whether you’re an adult or child!
