Top Ten Tuesday #46 + Teaser Tuesday #7

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish 

This week's Top Ten Tuesday topic: Top 10 Childhood Favorites. A favorite topic; I love remembering all of the books I loved as a child. This list will probably range from very little kids' books to when I was twelve, and will be two books short from ten. I know I had several favorites, but I am forgetting several of them.

His face was clear, and all of the houses with their Christmas lights faded behind him. With his smallest hands he had opened a door in me, and I cried and cried. He held me there until I laughed a little. Like the whole thing was a joke. I wanted to forget all of it. We kept walking. Along the path of light, I saw every bulb come into focus only as we got close to it. And finally he said, he said it to me, "I love you, too."
Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira (pg. 162)

  1. I'm listening my way through the Lemony Snicket series, having never read them before though I did see the movie. They aren't my thing, but I don't hate them, they are just ok for me. It's been fun listening to Tim Curry read most of them, though I expected him to be more animated. Though Nancy was a good series, I was more fond of Trixie Belden. Have you ever heard of her? She's a younger version of Nancy (13 when series starts) and is more real ~ having chores and to watch her brother, and so on. She doesn't have tons of money like Nancy so she always felt more real to me. It's still my favorite favorite childhood series, and I collect both Trixie's and Nancy's.

    1. Snicket isn't for everyone, though the audiotapes may have something to do with that (audio usually ruins books for me, so I rarely listen to them). I tried to read Trixie as a kid, but it was because she had day-to-day things get in the way of her adventures that I didn't like them as much as Nancy Drew.

    If you loved The Roman Mysteries as a kid, then you're probably still a kid! ;-) LOL! I think it's a fantastic series, too, and I wish that I ran into more Caroline Lawrence fans.

    A Little Princess was also one of my childhood favourites. I like to think that girls either gravitate to Sara or gravitate to Mary (from A Secret Garden), without many falling in between.

    1. I am two-and-twenty - a young adult, but no longer a kid. At least, age-wise I'm not. I'm a writer, so a part of me will always be a kid, I suppose. ;)

      I'm not sure why THE SECRET GARDEN didn't appeal to me as much; the illustrations in my copy were done by the same illustrator. And I always wanted a garden of my own.

    1. Same here, Nicole. It's too bad they never made a movie that was close to the book. I did love the one that existed - where it takes place during WWI - but I still would have liked one truer to the book.

  6. Ah, Curious George, and the man with the lellow hat! I so much wanted to go to the hospital and have them x-ray my belly.

    My teaser this week is a bit of a new genre, an Amish adventure story:
