076. To all the books I've loved before. || Day13/GGBlogChallenge

Again, I apologise for not being on track with the challenge!

But here I am, making up for it--and for Day 13 of the Blog Challenge, I will share the list of books I've read while growing up. I still read some of them! :)

  1. Rilla of Ingleside by LM. Montgomery. I grew up reading the Anne of Green Gables series. Who under twenty hasn't met the engaging and talkative redheaded heroine? I love all the books in that series, but the eighth and final book stood out for me. Rilla, the youngest daughter of Gilbert and Anne Blythe was a vain and selfish young girl at the start of the story, but the Great War changed her life. 
  2. No Flying in the House by Betty Brock. This is another book that I have read in my childhood. The heroine, Annabel Tippens is no ordinary child. With a little white dog for a guardian and a half-fairy for a mum, can you still say Annabel is just like any other child? 
  3. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. No, I'm not kidding. As young as nine years old, my curiosity was piqued by a beautifully bound red and gold book sitting in the bookshelf. So I began to open the book, and the rest is history.
  4. The Harry Potter series, by JK. Rowling. Anyone who hasn't read this growing up has something missing in their life. Just kidding! Haha. :)
  5. Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell. No, really, it's truly, truly worth a read! The first book that I haven't read in one sitting because of the story's length! :)
  6. The Painted Veil by W. Somerset Maugham. Admittedly, I bought this book at a garage sale, just because the cover intrigued me. But it's a good read! :)
  7. Jane of Lantern Hill by LM. Montgomery. From the same author who wrote the Anne of Green Gables, this to me was a refreshing story as the heroine Jane lives in a home where her parents aren't living together, she is lonely, and she hates it. A visit to her father changes Jane's outlook on life. She is pretty much different from the other heroines LM Montgomery wrote, because it is close to reality.
  8. - 10. A Little Princess, Little Lord Fauntleroy and The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett. I've read this triumvirate of Frances Hodgson Burnett's well-known work as a little girl. My favourite of the three? Little Lord Fauntleroy. 

So ends the top ten of books I've read when I was growing up. What was yours? :) Please feel free to talk about it here in the comments! :)
