Childhood Favorites


Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created and hosted by The Broke and the Bookish

The Broke and the Bookish are taking a break until August 15th so I decided to go through some old topics I never did. These books are the ones that really stuck with me or that I could vividly remember enjoying. I excluded the Harry Potter series because it’s completely over used in my opinion. There was a ton of books back when I was a kid and honestly, HP wasn’t exactly earth shattering to me when I was younger and read the first two or three books.

Funny story about the Left Behind series on here. I grew up in a open religious setting (they taught me about a lot of religions but I never had to choose or think one way or another) so the whole idea that some power thing made all these people disappear was fascinating to me. I always pictured “god” as like, an alien ship just coming and sucking all these people up.
