This week sees the Planner Girls Collective sharing our favourite books. I’ve chosen to pick my 5 favourites from childhood and 5 I’ve love as an adult. I have loved reading for as long as I can remember so have gone through untold books in that time. I also find if I like a book I tend to binge read others by the same author meaning it can be very difficult to choose a favourite book from particular series.
First of all I’ll begin with 5 of my favourite childhood books, which are in no particular order.
The story is a moving tale set Poland in the middle of WWII and follows three children on their journey across the battlefields to find their parents. On the way the befriend an orphan boy who had crossed paths with their father.
I first became aware of this book in my final year at primary school when one of the teachers chose this book as the weekly story. What made this book so memorable to me at the time is that the teacher brought the story to life by bringing in props from the story such as the notes left by the ghost.
To this day I still own a copy of this book and can’t wait to read it to my children.
This was a difficult selection as I love all of Roald Dahl’s books and am currently enjoying them for a second time reading them to my 5 year old son, however this was one of the first books of his I read and still remains a firm favourite.
Next up we have my favourite books as an adult, again this list could go on forever but I will limit it to 5.
Books by Patricia Cornwell were what first got me hooked on crime thrillers. I love the Scarpetta series. This is the first book I read, however it’s actually the second Scarpetta novel in the series.
In my early twenties I was a huge fan of John Grisham novels and read loads but my favourite has to be this one. The Pelican Brief comes a very close second.
I hope you enjoyed reading my list and don’t forget to check out the other ladies in the Collective.
