Autumn is a time for cosy evenings in curled up on the sofa. I sadly never seem to read as much as I would like to, I probably manage 1 book about every 4-6 weeks, except when I’m on holiday when I can read 2-3 in a week.
When I was a child though I spent a lot of time on my own – my only sibling a brother is 11 years older than me. I always had my head in a book, I could never read them fast enough.
This has prompted me to look back at some of my favourite childhood books.
Enid Blyton Mystery Series – I read every one of this set. I still love a good mystery book today. To be honest I loved any book by Enid Blyton
Little Women by Louisa M Alcott – I have lost count of the number of times I read this beautiful story. I was engrossed by all the girls in the March family and their romantic interests.
What Katie Did by Susan Coolridge – another great classic about a girl with real spirit.
Agatha Christie And Then There Were None – this seems a strange book to add to a childhood collection, but I moved on to Agatha Christie around the age of 13. My brother had a large collection of her books. This was the first ‘grown-up’ book I read. Again I have remained a huge Agatha Christie fan to this day.
