TALKING ABOUT MY FAVOURITE CHILDHOOD READS!

Hey guys! Today I’m coming at you with a blog post – it’s not a discussion or a recommendations post – it’s just me… talking without purpose or a theme??? I have no idea… but, anywayyy, today I’m going to be telling you about the books I loved when I was younger – splitting the books into what I really enjoyed reading in primary school and in high school.

PRIMARY SCHOOL (5 -11)

books booksHarry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Harry Potter #1)  The Golden Door (The Three Doors Trilogy, #1)  Henry Hoey Hobson  The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1)

HARRY POTTER

I mean, if you guys know me you probably know of my love for Harry Potter. I don’t talk about the series all that often because I feel like everyone knows about Harry Potter and is there even all that more to say about the series at this point. This was not the series that got me into reading but, it is the series I remember loving and re-reading the most when I was younger, and I’m pretty sure that no matter what JKR says, I will still love the series even when I’m old and smelly.

THE GOLDEN DOOR

I love this series and wish everyone would just go ahead and read this. I feel like this trilogy and its author is basically Australian royalty and yet so many people haven’t read any of her books??? And yet here I am sitting in a corner all alone just loving her Doors trilogy. Basically, this trilogy is genius and it deserves so much more recognition.

HENRY HOEY HOBSON

This book is my childhood. It’s set literally across the road from where I live and I love it very much. It’s a fun and short middle-grade novel that I like to read whenever I feel really sick. I love this book and it honestly just feels like home because of how many times I’ve read it.

PERCY JACKSON

I mean, come on, it as a given, right?? When I was in the 6th grade my teacher attempted to read Percy Jackson to a class full of non-readers, excluding myself and pretty much one other student. So, she gave up on that pretty quickly but I ended up getting the book out from the library because I just love it so much and then I ended up reading and finishing it a couple of days later. This series is pretty much what I remember the most from my primary school days.

HIGH SCHOOL (12-17)

books books books aCinder (The Lunar Chronicles, #1)  The Giver (The Giver, #1)  Fahrenheit 451

THE LUNAR CHRONICLES

I’ll be honest, I flew through this series really quickly, I think I read the first three in something like a week. But, I haven’t actually re-read the entire series in YEARS. Which kind of makes me feel bad because this used to be one of my absolute faves so why haven’t I re-read it since? I am thinking, though that I will re-read the whole series (probably minus Fairest & Stars Above) this year, so if any of you guys wanna buddy read, hit me up!

THE GIVER

I love this book and it hurts me when people say they didn’t like it because they thought the movie was pretty shit and so they won’t read the book. Guys, please don’t do that. The movie is terrible, please read the book.

This is one of my favourite books and I wish that everyone would read it. You don’t have to read the whole series, just read The Giver and love it and absorb how amazing and smart the book is.

FAHRENHEIT 451

I love this book. It is the bee’s knees and I wish that more people would read it even though it’s a classic and everyone hates classics. I love this book and I think about it quite often and I’ll be honest I’ll start a conversation about someting just so I can segway into comparing it to something in this book. Basically, I love it and wish more people would read it.

  1. I read The Giver when I was 14 years old and I absolutely loved it. I didn’t read Harry Potter and The Lunar Chronicles until last year though. My parents didn’t allow me to read Harry Potter when I was growing up but as an adult I decided I wanted to and I loved it so much!

    1. It’s so good, the Giver is one of my absolute faves! Wow, how did you enjoy HP as an adult? I read it so young that I feel pretty biased in my love for it haha. I’m glad you enjoyed TLC, I plan on re-reading it soon to see if I still feel the same way about it!

    1. I know what you mean, the movie isn’t very good so I think a lot of people are discouraged from reading the book because of it. The book, in my opinion, is really gooed though, and definitely worth a try!

    1. I’m not so sure about that – you should definitely give at least the first couple of Percy Jackson books or at least one of the Magnus Chase books a shot. They all have the same brand of humour and follow the same kind of plot order – they have different plots but follow the same formula, if that makes sense. Personally, even though I’m an adult, I still really enjoy the Rick Riordan’s books – I’m not as big of a fan of the Percy Jackson books as I once was but, I am a really big fan of the Magnus Chase trilogy.

  2. This is a really good idea. I liked it a lot! Although, I secretly liked The Giver movie. I actually hated The Giver when I was in high school but after HS, I decided to give it a chance and its now easily one of my favorite books.

    1. Oh, that’s really interesting, I read loved The Giver before I had to study it in school so I already loved it and then when I had analyse it I had even more fun!
      I don’t hate the movie but I also don’t go to watch it very often.
