Top 10 Books: I wish I read when I was a child

I saw Nut Free Nerd’s post while exploring blogs and knew I had to make my own list. In 2019 I read Time’s 100 Best YA. The majority of this list was children’s lit. I soon realized there was a slew of books I missed out on as a younger reader.

  • The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkin
  • Everything by Roald Dahl
  • Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
  • Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan
  • The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
  • Coraline by Neil Gaiman
  • Wonder by R.J. Palacio
  • The Girl Who Drank the Moon by Kelly Barnhill
  • The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

Are there any books you wish you read as a younger reader?
