#T5W: Children’s Books to Read as an Adult

Hello bookishfamily! It is Wednesday again, and you know what that means? Top 5 Wednesday! I’ve been skipping it in February as I was ungodly busy.

To be honest, I am going to struggle on this topic because most of the stuff that I read as a kid were either fairytales or classics (yes, I grew up reading classics). I think I mentioned before that as a child or adolescent I didn’t even read Harry Potter, I am doing it now as an adult. First time I read YA when I was 19-20 years old, and that was Twilight….


This was one of my favourite books as a child. I totally adored it I remember that the cover I had was blue and my mum read it to me first, then I read it to myself. My mum even nicknamed me Fang afterwards (still calls me Fang sometimes, boo!). Have you read it? I remember it being very sad.


The Wonderful Wizard of OZ by  L. Frank Baum. This I think I read as a child, but I am not sure as I’ve seen the movie a million times as well. I really enjoyed the story, so this would be something that I would love to read (again, hopefully) as an adult.


Eragon by Christopher Paoloni. I read this when I was in highschool and I remember devouring it in 2 days. I don’t remember anything of it, but at the time I loved and wanted to continue, but my library didn’t have any more, so I never had. Maybe one day I will revisit.


The adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I read as a child and I totally loved it. This is one of the books that are work revisiting now as an adult as I would be able to see layers to it that I was unable to as a child. Have you read it?


What do you think about my list? Have you read any? Looking back, I realise that most of the books that I read a child or adolescent, are incredibly sad stories and not the kind of stuff most kids read nowadays. No wonder that I prefer dark, twisted tales to anything else. What did you read as a child/adolescent and would like to re-read as an adult?
