Hello book people, it is another Top 5 Wednesday and today we are going down the memory lane with:
July 12th: Children’s Books
–This can include Middle Grade (but try to recommend more than just Harry Potter and Percy Jackson!) Feel free to talk about your childhood faves or more recent reads.
Let is dive into it:
It is probably one of my favourite fairytale story because of the storyline of a girl rescued from the clutches of hardship. I remember feeling comfort in the story creating that make-believe story that my Cinderella ending would come one day, in that my dreams would come true. I love a Cinderella trope especially in films and it is because of the reading the fairy tale so many times. It gave me hope that better things will come some day.
2. The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Andersen
Reading with a more matured mind, I understand the story with more than just “beauty is skin deep,” eyes. As a child, I thought it was all about learning not to treat someone based on their physical (which is also great) but I see more of how the world works.
3. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (Illustrated Classic Editions)by Malvina G. Vogel
I enjoyed this edition and my journey with Captain Nemo. I travelled the seas
4. Heidi by Johanna Spyri
I enjoy following Heidi journey running up and down that hill and most of all the effect she had on a grandfather.
5.Malory Towers Boxset by Enid Blyton
Best boarding school stories!
Notewell: Many of the descriptions for the stories are part of my book Reviews posted on here(blog) or on Goodreads.
I hope you have fun reading for this Top 5 Wednesday 🙂
