Weekly Book Memes

Top 5 Wednesday: Children’s Books to Read as an Adult!

Hi everyone!

Today I’m back with bookish meme I haven’t done before – Top 5 Wednesday! This is a weekly meme hosted by Lainey at GingerReadsLainey on Youtube. There is a topic each week and you choose five answers related to it!


This month is full of freebie prompts as they’re busy with other things and I’m so excited to do this one! This is a prompt from March and I can’t wait to share some books with you!divider-2461548_1280

Matilda by Roald Dahl
This is an obvious answer for me as I always seem to mention how much I love Matilda! It’s such an amazing book, and really helped me realise that I wasn’t alone as a child who loved books!

The Edge Chronicles by Paul Stewart and Chris Riddell
I don’t actually know the target age for this series, but I remember reading the series in primary school and absolutely adoring it! One of my favourite memories was of chatting to my teacher at the time about what was happening in this series!

The Hundred-Mile-An-Hour Dog by Jeremy Strong
The entire of Jeremy Strongs books would have me hooked completely when I was a kid! I loved his writing and the illustrations to go with them were just brilliant. This one was constantly one I reread and it made me laugh everytime!

The Jiggy McCue Series by Michael Lawrence
I genuinely hold these books so dear to my heart. I would wait patiently every-time a new book was out for it to come into my school’s library and it would be the first thing I read! The stories are so funny and lighthearted and perfect for children – and even adults!

The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips by Michael Morpurgo
Obviously Michael Morpurgo is one of the most loved authors in the world so it’s no surprise he’s on my list! However this is my all time favourite book by him and I still read it now and cry because it is just amazing. The writing style is beautiful and the story is just everything.divider-2461548_1280

Wow that was amazing – I loved reminiscing on my favourite childhood books! I now want to reread them all over again, maybe I need to start re-purchasing them all!

What are your favourite childhood books? Have you read any of mine? Leave a comment below and link your T5W for this week too – I’d love to read it!

Until next time,

Keep Reading!

  1. I’m in the middle of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book, which I’m told is supposed to be a children’s book (though it seems to deal with some very mature subjects!) I’m enjoying quite a bit, so far!
