Okay, so this triple T feature/weekly meme is hosted by the totally awesome, so have to follow The Broke and the Bookish! Yes, obviously, I am participating. *bows* Now, for a disclosure: This meme isn't meant to instigate any sort of problems or unhealthy debates, nor is it something authors or fans should take offense by. Top Ten Tuesday is just another way to spread the word about books, and how much they are loved.
ANYWAY, this week's topic: Books I Wish I Read As a Kid. I definitely wish I'd read more when I was younger. I didn't appreciate books or reading in general then and I missed out on a lot of entertaining stuff!
1) Judy Blume's Middle Grade Series: I'm not really a big fan of middle grade novels. In fact, I rarely ever read them. But from like third grade and on I've heard so many great things about these books but I was just never interested enough to read them. Maybe I'll check out her YA titles...
2) Dr. Seuss's Titles : I used to enjoy these so much and then BAM! Suddenly I wasn't interested in reading 'em anymore.
3) Nightworld by L.J. Smith: I would've loved to read this series then. I might've appreciated the genre more now. *shrugs*
4) Titles by Rachel Hawthorne: At a very early age, I wanted to read/see romance. And Rachel Hawthorne's works are very light romances, nothing heavy, so I think I would've enjoyed them (more) then.
6) Solid by Shelley Workinger: I actually just reviewed this novel. I wish that I'd read it when I didn't like or know much about reading. My book obsession most likely would've kicked in years ago.
7) Georgia Nicholson series: I'm not sure if this is a YA or MG series, but I really wish I would've picked this up awhile ago. I think this would've sparked my interest in reading as kid since it's so hilarious. I loved the movie to this by the way...
9) Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan: This is another middle gradish series that I really wish I'd read earlier on. My sister says it's wonderful so perhaps I'll read it despite it being Middle Grade.
10) Magic School Bus series: I think I would've loved these more than watching the movies I was forced to watch in grammar school. It's more fun imagining than seeing on TV. But I was very interested in like the fourth/fifth grade I just never pursued it.
Thanks for reading!
Come back at around 5/6 PM EST to read my Iron Queen kick off week post! I just love the Iron Fey series & really want to support Julie in all her iron fey related endeavors.*laughs*
