Top Ten Tuesday
From the Broke and the Bookish this weeks topic is Books I Wish I had read when I was a kid...
Hmm, I'm pretty sure I won't get to ten.
1. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll - this seems like one of those everyone knows the story, but few have read it books. That's my excuse at least.
2. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson - Pirates! Arrrgh!
3. The Hounds of the Baskervilles - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Sherlock Holmes is too light in my reading history.
4. Journey to the Center of the Earth - Jules Verne. I have this at home. It seems like the kind of adventure story I would have more enjoyed as a boy than an adult.
5. Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. Need to have a 'scary' book on the list.
6. Any of the Hardy Boys books. I like mysteries today, seems I would have liked these as a kid.
7. The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain. I read Huck Finn freshman year of college. It, too, should have been read when I was younger. What was wrong with my teachers?
I guess that will do it for now...
