Top 5 Wednesday: Children’s Books

Standard

Top 5 Wednesday

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:

1. Cinderella

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.

QUIZ – Which Malory Towers Character Are You?

Standard

 

Pillow fights, midnight feasts, jolly hockey sticks, fierce lacrosse games and lots of drama, while some might say the Malory Towers books by Enid Blyton are outdated, girls of all ages have delighted in the series since its publication in the 1940s. Probably the most iconic of all boarding school stories, we grew up with Darrell Rivers and friends as they competed in sports matches, crept out of their dormitories for midnight feasts by the rock pool and played tricks on the poor French mesdemoiselles.

Are you a fan of the Malory Towers? If yes, you should do this quiz just for fun and old times sake:

Books Into TV Shows/ Top 5 Wednesday

Standard

Good morning Wednesdayers, I hope all is bright and bookish on this illustrious sixteenth day of the ninth month of the two thousand and sixteenth year. This week on Top 5 Wednesday the topic is:

September 14: Books You Want to See as TV Shows
–With fall TV season starting up, this seems relevant.

Many of the books I like or love are already in  movie format because coincidentally I  appreciate books with film adaptation and vice versa. I am not good at following TV shows because  I am not patient for tuning every week for another episode. However, if a few of the series I read as a child or a few from some series as an adult, why not and I can play catch up.

P.S. I tried researching to verify if any of the following books  are not already TV Shows BUT if  you know differently please do let me know.

Let us dive into it:
