#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?

  1. I am still trying to figure how Tom and Finn got themselves in and out of trouble like nobody’s business. The time when parents felt it was safe to let their children roam about!
