Top Ten Tuesday: Books I wish I had read as a child

Happy Top Ten Tuesday! This week’s theme is books I wish I had read as a child. Some of these are books I’ve read as an adult that I know I would have liked more as a child, and others are books that either came out once I was an adult or that I, for whatever reason, haven’t read.


The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Eragon by Christopher Paolini

The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snicket

Wonder by R.J. Palacio

The Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

The Giver by Lois Lowry

Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson

The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien

Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

    I read most of these as a kid. The Giver was one of my favorites in middle school. I was a little too old by the time Percy Jackson came out, but recently decided to give it a read for the first time. It’s a fun book even for somebody in their 30s. I like that Percy isn’t the typical hero.
