Top Ten Tuesday is a great meme hosted at The Broke and the Bookish.
This week's topic is: Top Ten Books I Wish I'd Read as a Kid. So, there are some books (mostly children's classics) that I haven't read yet, but I wish I'd read as a kid; or, I have read them, but as an adult and that kind of took away the magic.
Top Ten Books I Wish I'd Read as a Kid are:
1. Alice in Wonderland (Lewis Carroll): I read it as an adult and thought it was entertaining, but nothing special. I'm sure that if I'd read it as a kid, I would have liked it better.
2. The Chronicles of Narnia (C.S. Lewis): I only started reading the books recently.
3. Peter Pan (J.M. Barrie): I haven't read Peter Pan. I really should.
4. Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (Jules Verne): When I was a kid, my grandpa would narrate the story to me and I was really interested in it. Now, I can't find inspiration to read this book. I wish I'd done it in my childhood.
5. Matilda (Roald Dahl): I've read quite a few Dahl books, but never Matilda, which is a bit odd. Now, there are just so many other books to read.
6. The Tale of Peter Rabbit (Beatrix Potter): Such a cute story! The first time I read the story was when the movie Miss Potter was released.
7. The Secret Garden (Frances Hodgson Burnett): I love the movie, such a timeless story.
8. Anne of Green Gables (Lucy Maud Montgomery): Again, love the movie, haven't read the book.
9. A Series of Unfortunate Events (Lemony Snicket): They sound so fun! I would have loved the books as a kid, and I hope I'll like them as an adult.
10. Charlotte's Web (E.B. White): It has been recommended to me many times. It sounds absolutely lovely.
