Favourite Childhood Books!

I wasn’t as much of a reader when I was younger then opposed to now, but I did read and enjoy a variety of books so I thought it would be fun to share them!

Geronimo Stilton  – I was obsessed with Geronimo Stilton until about grade 4 when my teacher told me I should start reading higher level books. This made me pretty mad considering how much I loved the series but I listened to her, and if I didn’t I would probably still be reading Geronimo Stilton now. Their adventures were just so fun and entertaining, and reading a book where instead of people, rodents filled the world was intriguing.

The Magic Treehouse by Mary Pope Osborne – I don’t know anyone who disliked this series because it was such a great children’s series! It was jammed pack with adventure and awesome characters, and even added some history in a way that didn’t feel like a boring history lesson. The Magic Treehouse series definitely kicked off my love for mythology and just world history in general.

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot – I read these when I was about 10 and I have to say that these are definitely not appropriate for 10 year olds. Other than that, I really did love this series and always had so much fun reading in awkward Mia’s point of view. I also really enjoyed the movies then, and also now! I recently purchased the first 3 books in The Princess Diaries series and I am excited to read them again after 5 years.

Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan – Like The Princess Diaries, I read this series when I was about 10 because that was the year I really got into reading, and was reading 24/7. This series is actually what got me into reading thicker chapter books and introduced me to the fantasy world. Percy Jackson is such an awesome character to follow, along with the rest of the cast, and the world is so intriguing while also educational because of the mythology.

Those are 4 of my favourite series growing up and if you read any of these when you were younger definitely comment down below! Don’t forget to check out my last blog post: Reading/Writing Update!
