Top Ten Books From My Childhood That I Would Love To Revisit!

I read a ton of books when I was a youngin', and yes, I would love to revisit them all because I barely remember the plot, or what made me love that specific book so much. BUT THEN AGAIN, I don't want to ruin the magic. So maybe I will revisit them in theory.


Inkheart by Cornelia Funke - Only my favorite childhood book of all time so of course it's going to be on the list. I also want to reread the entire trilogy, because I kind of didn't finish the last book in this series. 

Matilda by Roald Dahl - I love this book, I love the movie, I wouldn't mind revisiting this at all because I know that it will still be amazing. Because Matilda.

Island of the Blue Dolphins by Scott O'Dell - I'm pretty sure I had to read this for summer reading in elementary school, but I absolutely loved it. Do I remember it? No. No I do not. But dolphins.

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli - I'm actually very surprised that there is a sequel to this. The ending for Stargirl, at least I remember, really saddened me, so maybe I'll check out that second book.

Frindle by Andrew Clements - THIS BOOK. I think I read everything by Andrew Clements because they were just so fun. Like renaming a pen "frindle".

Hoot by Carl Hiaasen - I also reread this book numerous times throughout my childhood, this and Flush. Now that I think about it, Flush was more of a favorite.

The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine - So I kind of remember what happened, I know that it's about the plague, but it also involved magic and fairies?  

Alanna: The First Adventure by Tamora Pierce - I READ EVERYTHING BY TAMORA PIERCE. Mostly everything haha. But I've been meaning to reread this series, because Alanna is awesome. The cover? Not so much.

Half Magic by Edward Eager - I remember the cover and the illustrations, but nothing about this book. Just that I saw it, every day, in elementary school. It haunts me.

Socks by Beverly Cleary - CATS. SOCKS. EVERYTHING I LOVE IN LIFE. Anyways, I love Beverly Cleary was also another author I read a lot from in my elementary school years.


I read a billion books in elementary school, even while the teacher was talking, ha. Any childhood books you would like to revisit?
