Welcome one and all to this week’s Top 5 Wednesday post! For those of you who don’t know Top 5 Wednesday is a weekly meme/challenge which was created by the wonderful Lainey from gingereadslainey and is now overseen by the equally lovely Sam from Thoughts of Tomes. Every Wednesday, participants devise their Top 5 based on a given topic.
This Wednesday’s topic is 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.
Now, a few months ago, I did a post called The Books That Made Me, which featured a lot of my childhood favourites and explained how they made me the reader, and the person, that I am today. Unsurprisingly series such as Harry Potter, Sabriel, and The Princess Diaries featured on there. In a desire to not simply repeat that post, I’ve decided instead to interpret this week’s topic as Children’s/Middle Grade Books on my TBR – i.e. these are the books I think I would have loved as a kid and that the (slightly more) adult reader in me will probably still love when I get to reading them now.
