My Life in Books 1


1. I learned myself how to read from a Disney version of Peter Pan. It wasn't the exact same book as the TinkerBell version on the picture, but it does remind me of it. Disney books taught me how to read and I will never forget them.


2. When I was a child I loved to read fairytales. The most horrible stories were my favorites. I couldn't get enough of them and must have read quite many. Hans Christian Andersen wrote the stories I liked the most.


3. I liked adventures a lot and have read and reread many of the Famous Five books.


4. Matilda is one of the last children's books I've read. There was a copy at the school library, but it was never on the shelves. I had to wait until the end of my primary school days to finally get my hands on it. 


5. The Blind Miller is the first adult novel I read. I couldn't put it down. I was only thirteen when I read it and felt very grown up all of a sudden.

  1. I wasn't a big reader when I was a child, so I missed out on a lot of really good childrens books. I did read Matilda, though! It's one of my all time childhood favorites. :)

  3. I loved reading as a kid. I remember reading The Babysitter's Club and RL Stine, but I can't remember much beyond that. I wish I knew what the first adult book was that I read. I know I was sneaking romance novels in high school. ;) It's great to have these memories. I have made sure to purchase some of my favorite old RL Stine books over the years at used bookstores, in hopes my daughter may read them some day.

  4. I loved reading as a child too. but during my teen years, I strayed away from books and really didn't pick up another read until I was 32. I wonder if that's where my love of YA books might come from. Have you read any of the classic children's novels, Alice in Wonderland etc?

  5. High school can really spoil your fun in reading, especially when you have to read lots of dull books. There was hardly YA when I was younger, so I missed that as well. I do love it, so like you I'm catching up now. I've also read several of the classics, like Alice in Wonderland indeed and all the Oz stories!

  6. I've read a lot of books that my parents bought during their childhood, so I bet your daughter will love that! Our house was filled with books, but hardly any new ones, because there wasn't a decent book store nearby. I'm going to write another post about what I read during high school, because that was actually quite a lot and also books I wasn't supposed to read just like you :).

  7. I've got so many I will need several posts for them, I've always loved books and fortunately I can remember quite well which books really made a difference back then...

  8. I love Matilda, it's such a funny book. I've also read a lot of comics when I was younger, I really liked those. Fortunately you've got the chance to do some catching up now :).

  9. I wish Goodreads had existed back when I was in High School so I could've kept track of what I read better. I do remember sneak reading some Jude Deveraux books in class.
