Top Ten Books From My Childhood That I Would Love To Revisit

1. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine. I loved this book when I first read it all those years ago. And it's a book that all of my cousins love as well. But I haven't read it since that first time, and I'd love to reread it again.

2. The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. Holy Jesus did I love this book when I read it! I was in eight grade, and I remember just fangirling over it for days. But last year, I read Princess Academy for the first time, and I was really underwhelmed. It made me wonder if this book is really as good as I remember it. So I'd love to read it again and find out.

3. Gordon Korman. I loved Gordon Korman growing up, and I'd love to revisit some of his books, especially No More Dead Dogs and Jake, Reinvented--which I had no idea was a modern day retelling of The Great Gatsby, because I was a kid and hadn't read that classic. Also, I really loved Jake, Reinvented, but it has a low rating on Goodreads, and again, I'd like to see if I am remembering it wrong.

4. The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman. Honestly, I don't remember a single thing about this series, except that I really enjoyed it. It's been almost fifteen years. But I'd love to read it again and remember it.

5. Boston Jane by Jennifer L. Holm. I loved this series growing up. In fact, I think it was the first series, other than Harry Potter, that I followed and eagerly waited for the next book to be released. I'd love to revisit them.

6. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd. I cried so hard during this book, but I loved it. I still love it. But it's been almost ten years since I've read it and I'd love to reread it again, no matter how painful its going to be.

7. Bridge to Terabithia by Katherine Paterson. The only thing I remember about this book is how it ends, and that is so unfair. I want to remember the good parts too.

8. Holes by Louis Sachar. It's been fifteen years since I've read this book. That's practically a crime! I need to reread this amazingness.

9. Sharon Creech. I loved her books as a kid, especially the ones I have pictured below. I'd love to read them again soon.

10. Wringer by Jerry Spinelli. Jerry Spinelli is pretty fantastic, but Wringer is by far my favorite one of his novels. It moved me so much when I read it in fifth grade, and I'm sure it will move me again if I revisit it.

  1. Aw I love Holes! It's one of my favorite books and this list reminded me that it's time for a re-read. My younger sister read and loved this book too. I have fond memories of reading it, although I didn't realize until a while ago that there was a sequel: Small Steps.
