Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit

I’m going to list books that I loved. I wish I could go back to that first time reading them, but I think many of these will not have stood the test of time.

1. Nancy Drew (or Kitty as they´re called in Sweden for some reason) by Carolyn Keene (pseudonym)- absolutely loved these growing up, read all I could get my hands on.

2. The Famous Five (Vi Fem-böckerna) by Enid Blyton – my dad had a bunch of these from when he grew up that when I was a kid lived in a suitcase at my grandparents. I would usually spend a few weeks each year during school holidays with them at their farm and I always read them when I was staying there.

3. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery (Anne på Grönkulla) – borrowed these again and again from the local library growing up.

4. The Little House on the Prairie (Lilla huset på prärien) by Laura Ingalls Wilder – loved both the books and the tv-show.

5.  The Hardy Boys (Bröderna Hardy) by Franklin W. Dixon (pseudonym) – some of these also lived in the suitcase with the Famous Five books. I also had some cross-over books with the brothers and Nancy Drew.

6. Goodnight Mister Tom (Godnatt Mr Tom) by Michelle Magorian – I remember vividly how our teacher read this out loud to the class when I was about 8-9years old. After that I read it a few times myself.

7. Lord of the Rings (Sagan om ringen) by J.R.R. Tolkien – read these for the first time when I was 12, I’ve read them a few times since then as well 🙂

8. The Three Musketeers (De tre musketörerna) by Alexandre Dumas – loved this in my early teens, have not read it since. This I think I would still enjoy greatly though.

9. Pettson och Findus (Pettson and Findus) bu Sven Nordqvist – still love these books with all their detalied pictures to get lost in for hours. Appropriate for all ages I would say.

10. Black Beauty by Anna Sewell – I loved reading stories about horses almost as much as I was sad over the fact that I’m allergic to them.

  1. Hur – och här menar jag verkligen HUR?!?! – kunde jag glömma Lilla huset på prärien? Jag har ju böckerna hemma på både svenska (gallrade bibbloböcker) och engelsks (fin bokbox) jag läste ju sönder de här böckerna!

  2. Alltså – jag läser din lista och tänker ”HUR kunde jag glömma den???” vid ungefär hälften … 😉
