This is my first Girl Talk Thursday!
I loved reading as a kid, I mean LOVED. My childhood wasn't filled with happy fluffiness, reading provided an escape. I spent most of my time huddled up with a book. I still love to read.
My favorite books by far were the Little House Series, I can't even count the times I read them all. One of my few regrets of not having a girl is sharing these books with them. I am hoping at least one of the boys will like them
A close second is The Secret Garden, (happy sigh) I still love this book. It was the perfect parallel to my need to escape.
Another favorite was Matilda. I think everyone loved that book.
