    Default Favourite books of your childhood

    Trixie Beldon and Flowers in the Attic for sure.

    Snugglepot and Cuddlepie, Bottersnikes and Gumbles were other favs when I was younger.

    I also loved Baby Island and The Velvet Room.

    Can't remember the title, but I used to have some of the choose your ending books. They were great as could read over and over and make different choices all the way through!

    I don't remember other specific titles, the ones I listed are all ones I kept for my kids I loved them so much! I was a voracious reader and went through the school and town libraries. I read Jaws and Gone with the Wind when I was about 12, and love the big photo book on Princess Di the town library had too.

    Saddle Club

    I loved horror books too. Started with R L Stine, but then would buy anything in that teenage style horror. Can't remember all the authors though.

    I'll list up until year 7... after that there are just too many that I got into. Our school librarian used to buy books that he thought my friend and I would like. He was brilliant at expanding our reading range, and I spent an extraordinary amount of time reading.

    Aurhors: Any and all of their books, I wasn't fussy.
    Enid Blyton.... I am going to start scouring ebay for old copies. The new ones just won't cut it.
    Roald Dahl (I've got quite a few as I used them when I was teaching too!)
    Judy Bloom
    Tamora Pierce (dying to get all of her books. It was a great place for introducing strong female characters in fantasy.
    John Marsden
    Brian Caswell


    Series that I loved not included in the above authors list:
    Nancy Drew
    Anne of Green Gables

    Individual books that I can remember off the top of my head:
    Ballet Shoes
    Heidi
    Secret Garden
    The Little Princess
    Playing Beatie Bow
    Alice in Wonderland

    These were the books that I would read over and over again. I've probably missed heaps. And I want them all on my shelves again! We moved so often that I couldn't keep them all - so many went to garage sales and charity.

    Oh gosh, sooo many books!

    As a little kid I loved all Enid Blyton, especially series like Famous Five, Secret Seven, Naughtiest Girl in the School, adventure series.

    Pickles was another favourite when I was younger, about a girl who becomes disabled in an accident and then gets a horse named Pickles.

    As I got a bit older I loved Emily Rodda, Morris Glietzman, Goosebumps.

    My absolute favourite from about 10yo through until early teens was Galax Arena by Gillian Rubenstein. I must have read it about a thousand times.

    I read anything I could get my hands on. I'd often read 2-3 books a week. I really miss being able to just sit and read uninterrupted.
