Six for Sunday: Books From My Childhood

Six for Sunday: Books From My Childhood

BOOK REVIEW - 2019-04-14T092052.589.png
Today’s Six for Sunday prompt is books from my childhood. I loved so many series growing up that it was tough to choose just six! Six for Sunday is a weekly post created by Steph over at A Little But A Lot, you can find out more about it here!

1. Harry Potter – J. K. Rowlingbook cover - 2019-04-14T090927.310

I think this is probably on everyone’s list. I grew up reading Harry Potter over and over and I’m still obsessed with it today. I remember getting the first two books and just being completely absorbed and then it was midnight openings to get the next instalment.

2. A Series of Unfortunate Events – Lemony book cover - 2019-04-14T091125.331Snicket

I really adored A Series of Unfortunate Events. I got the first three from my parents as a birthday gift and I spent the rest of the afternoon making my way through them. I still have my beautiful hardback collection and they’ll always be on my favourites shelf.

3. Sweep Series/Balefire Series – Cate Tiernan

I was obsessed with the Sweep and Balefire series by Cate Tiernan. I loved the mixture of magic and romance and I completely fell in love with the characters. I named my first pets (two guinea pigs) Skye and Morgan after my favourite characters.

4. Abhorsen Series/ Shade’s Children – Garth Nix

I picked the Abhorsen series but honestly I pretty much flew through every book Garth Nix put out (and I still buy all his new ones though quite a few are in my TBR pile), I loved the magic and adventure of it all. I met him recently as an adult and he signed all my battered and beat up copies and it made me so happy.

5. The Lord of the Rings – J. R. R. Tolkienbook cover - 2019-04-14T091455.594

After racing through so many fantasy books I bought Lord of the Rings with my pocket money. I remember being a bit intimidated by the size of the book but I completely fell in love and it definitely made me become a huge fan of chunky fantasy books.

6. Inheritance Cycle – Christopher Paolini

book cover - 2019-04-14T091636.455When I was young I really adored Eragon and the Inheritance Cycle. I didn’t notice the obvious similarities with Lord of the Rings and I just loved returning to the world. It was probably the first big fantasy book that I was eagerly awaiting the next instalment for. It’s something I’m hoping to reread in the future because I wonder if my feelings for this series will have changed.

So those are my six books I loved from my childhood! What are some of your childhood favourites?
