13 Favourite Books!




1. Anything by Enid Blyton – “The Faraway Tree”, “The Wishing Chair”, “Children of Cherry-Tree Farm”, “The Secret Seven”, “The Famous Five”, “The Naughtiest Girl in the School”, “Mallory Towers” and “St Clair’s”. She is probably my all time favourite children’s author.

2. “The Billabong Books” by Mary Grant Bruce.

3. “Anne of Green Gables” and “Emily of New Moon” by L.M. Montgomery.

4. “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

5. “Tom’s Midnight Garden” by Phillipa Pearce.

6. “The Chronicles of Narnia” by C.S. Lewis

7. “The Little White Horse” by Elizabeth Gould.

8. “My Friend Flicka” by Mary O’Hara.

9. “Nancy Drew” by Carolyn Keene

 10. “The Hardy Boys” by Franklin W. Dixon, and it was always more exciting when they teamed up with Nancy Drew!

11. “The Trixie Belden Mysteries” written first by Julie Campbell and then by various other authors.

12. “The Obernewtyn Chronicles” by Isobelle Carmody. There has been about a 20 year wait for this series to finish, the end is finally in sight, and I am really looking forward to it!

13. Anything by Roald Dahl – “The BFG”, “James and the Giant Peach” and “Matilda” to name a few, though my favourite would have to be “Roald Dahl’s Revolting Rhymes”!

It was not very surprising that I found it hard to cull this list to just 13, there are so many more that keep popping into my mind! Most of these are for older children, I can’t really remember any favourite picture books, though my daughter has plenty at the moment! I am really looking forward to reading them with her in years to come.
