My Favorite.. Book As A Child



My Favorite.. is a weekly meme hosted by Maureen’s Books. In this meme we share every week something we love with each other. Because let’s face it.. The world can be a dark place and it’s time to share something positive. For more info: My Favorite Meme.

As I’ve told you guys many times before my favorite books are the Harry Potter series. I’ve read the first book when I was eight years old, so that’s definitely my favorite book as a child. But since I’ve talked about Harry Potter so many times before. I’d like to share with you guys another book I’ve loved as a child.

One of my favorite books as a child was ‘Matilda’ by Roald Dahl. Boy did I love that book. I’ve read it several times, and I could never get enough. I just loved Mathilda, and I so wanted to be her. Being able to read that fast and that good, was just something I was really envious about. And I loved the look of the Dutch version of the book.

Next to reading ‘Matilda’ I also loved ‘James and the Giant Peach’, ‘The BFG’, ‘The Witches’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ by Roald Dahl. I still have those books standing on my shelves. These were definitely the books that made me fall in love with reading when I was growing up. 

Which book did you love as a child?

  1. I didn't read Matilda until I became a teacher and used it in my class. I watched the movie from the 90s and I loved Matilda and Miss Honey! I don't think Roald Dahl was favored much by my district's teachers because none of his books were ever read as part of the curriculum. I really loved the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder.

    1. I haven't heard about The Little House series before. Roald Dahl definitely was an author which books I was encouraged to read. And I loved them all.
      The Movie made of Mathilda was amazing. I loved watching that one!
      Thanks for visiting! ;)

  2. I don't think I've ever read Matilda. I remember reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Judy Blume was another favorite. The Boxcar Children was a great series, too.

    1. Matilda definitely was a great book to read as a child. I never read a Judy Blume book. Sounds fun.

  3. I was just thinking earlier today that I need to read Roald Dahl to my kids. We are about to head back to school, and we've been terrible about reading over the summer. I need to get them back into the groove. I didn't read Roald Dahl growing up so it would be my first time experiencing them, too.
