Top Ten Tuesdays: Is a weekly meme feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where bloggers post their Top 10 List for an assigned topic! I will not be participating every week, but I will occasionally take a shot at it! You can always find these lists (past, present and original) on my Riffle Page!
This Week’s Topic:
Top Ten Books I Want my Children to Read
This list is a weird mixture of books I read in my childhood and books I’ve bought with the intention of sharing with my (someday) kids. Since 2011, my book purchases have been mostly eBooks but if there is a book or series I particularly love, I make an effort to buy it for my personal collection. So all these books on the list below are books I own (the exception being the Legend Series but that’s next on my list to buy!) and am holding on to with the hopes of sharing and passing on one day.
Why did I pick these books?
Well the classics from my childhood are Franklin, Bernstein Bears and Arthur. I spent countless hours as a kids reading those books with my family over the years. Nancy Drew is the ultimate classic–most of the Nancy Drew novels I own are from my mother’s childhood collection so they share a special place in my heart. I also adore mystery (my whole family does) and that’s something I want to pass on.
The rest (Legend, Winner’s Curse, Vampire Academy, The Mortal Instruments, Hunger Games and The Infernal Devices) are some of my favourite YA series ever! They each feature strong characters, amazing worlds and brilliant plots. They helped shape my reading world and I want them to do the same for my kids one day.
Do we share any books? What’s your criteria for sharing books with your children?
