Happy Tuesday! Today’s topic is books for my younger self. I don’t have ten books this week (oop) but the ones I did pick I’m rather happy with.
The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan – I know this is a popular one, but I never read it growing up. I still haven’t read it, and honestly I don’t think I’m going to read it. But I wish I would have read it as a kid.
Everyone who loves this series seems to be really nostalgic about it and that’s the kind of experience I would have wanted.
Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke – This is the third and final book in the Inkheart series, and while I picked up and read books one and two as a teen and loved them, for some reason I never read this one. I still own it – I own the whole series. But at this point I’d have to reread the entire thing to read this. It might happen. Even if it doesn’t though, I plan on keeping these books to have my future kids read.
My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi – This is definitely the kind of series I would have loved as a teen. Mind you I love it now but I know if I would have picked it up when I was 15 or 16, I would have been obsessed. I would have jumped into the fandom. I would have read fanfictions out the butt, I just know it.
Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire – This one I read recently and liked it but honestly had no desire to pick up the next one. I feel like if I would have read this at sixteen or seventeen I would have buzzed through the entire series.
It just didn’t leave me wanting more: I really liked it as a stand alone story.
A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle – This is another one I’ve owned since childhood but have never actually read. I haven’t seen the movie either – I do want to read the book. Maybe I’ll pick it up during a readathon or something. But I kinda wish I would have read this when I was twelve or so. I feel like I would have loved it then.
And that’s it! Maybe next week I can come up with ten books. :p
