Top Ten Tuesday: The Books That Made Me Love Reading – 6 July 2021

Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish and is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s prompt is reasons I love to read, but I decided to tweak it slightly and do the ten books that made me fall in love with reading. I wasn’t always a big reader when I was younger, but I was the kid that loved the books we were assigned to read in English class, and there were plenty of other books that I loved.

  • Famous Five – Five On A Treasure Island by Enid Blyton. I loved the Famous Five series. I read all the books, watched every episode of the tv show, collected those annual things that came out every year, and when I wasn’t doing that I was out playing pretending to be part of the Famous Five.
  • Twins by Caroline B. Cooney. This book terrified me when I first read it, but I kept going back to it over and over again.
  • Holes by Louis Sachar. I read this in year 8 as part of my English classwork, and I remember loving it so much. The rest of my class hated it, but I read it at least three times before I had to give it back to the school.
  • Goosebumps by R.L. Stine.
  • The Secret Seven by Enid Blyton. Like the Famous Five, although I didn’t like this series quite as much.
  • The Sleepover Club by Rose Impey.
  • The Suitcase Kid by Jacqueline Wilson. I read this book after my parents got divorced, and it helped me through it. I was a huge fan of all the Jacqueline Wilson books, but The Suitcase Kid has a special place in my heart.
  • Both Sides Of Time by Caroline B. Cooney. I think this was the first romance type book I read. It involves time travel and a love story.
  • The Story Of Tracy Beaker by Jacqueline Wilson.
  • Animal Ark by Ben M. Baglio.

  1. Great list! I used to love the Jacqueline Wilson books so much. And I have great memories of reading the Famous Five at my granny’s house growing up.
