Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers. (Meme description taken from The Broke and the Bookish)

I can't believe I didn't know this meme existed! I'm going to try hitting them all from the beginning. It sounds like so much fun!

Top Ten: Childhood Favorites

1. East of the Sun and West of the Moon by Mercer Mayer- The artwork was always so lovely. Plus the writing was so beautiful, I think I made my mother read this until she was hoarse. 

2. Did I Ever Tell You How Lucky You Are? by Dr. Seuss- I used to be able to recite this entire book by heart. It always makes me feel better after I have a rough day. The tongue twisters make me feel lucky I don't have to read them aloud!

3. I'll Love You Forever by Robert Munsch and Sheila McGraw- What more is there to say? I'll love you forever, I'll like you for always, as long as you're living, my baby you'll be.

4. The Little Witch and the Riddle by Bruce Degen- Apparently I was a huge fan on illustrations when I was younger. I loved the design of the cute little goblin.

5. Green Angel by Alice Hoffman- Oh wow this book was so sad but I loved it so much. It was like watching a phoenix rise from the ashes. I still haven't read the sequel and I want to sooo badly. 

6. The Two Princesses of Bamarre by Gail Carson Levine- This book defined my childhood. It was the first book adventure I had on my own. Addie and Rhys still have a huge part of my heart. I need to read this again.

7. A Rose for Melinda by Lurlene McDaniel- Another book that made up my childhood. I seem to really have liked the sad sob stories. 

8. When Lightning Strikes by Meg Cabot- Jess Mastrani was the first really strong female with attitude that I read. She encouraged me to speak up and be a little bad.

9.The Heartland Series by Lauren Brooke- Three years of my life were spent reading those books constantly. I wanted to do T-touch, take care of the horses and be just like Amy.

10. T*Witches Series by Randi Reisfeld and H.B. Gilmour- Twins and witches, that was all I needed to hear to be hooked like a fish. Well, that and their connection to the sun and moon.

*Honorable Mentions*

The Sailor Moon manga by Naoko Takeuchi, Inuyasha manga by Rumiko Takahashi and The Fingerprints Series by Melinda Metz

Happy Reading,
