QotD: Books From My Childhood

What books did you love as a child?

What a great question! There were many, but the two most favourites and the ones which probably influenced my taste in books the most were The Enchanted Wood and The Adventures of the Wishing Chair by Enid Blyton (and the sequels to each of those). I’m so looking forward to when my kids are old enough for me to read them to them.

Then there was the Book of Three, by Lloyd Alexander (and the sequels) which our teacher read to us in Primary 6 (aged 9–10), another influential book, being as it was in the fantasy genre.

The other that stands out was a book about the mysteries of the unknown, about ghosts and UFOs. I was doing some sort of school project when I was in primary school, and this was a book from the school library. I still remember some of the ghost pictures now and it still gives me the shivers!
