This week’s TTT is a freebie, so I chose one theme from the archives. TTT is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.
1. The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery
-I read this for the first time in high school French class. I love it so much. I never even knew about it until that class, but I wish that I had.
2. The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
-I read this for the first time in college. I wish I’d read it in middle or high school. This was the kind of book I needed to read then.
3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
-Still never read this book, though it’s kind of a quintessential classic for children.
4. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
-I recently moved out of my apartment complex. At that complex, people had a habit of setting their unwanted things near the elevator on each floor. I recently found this book, along with a few others, and it made me think how I never read it as a kid.
5. The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling
-Same as above.
6. The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett
-Same as above
7. The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis
-In late high school, I went on a quest to read all of C.S. Lewis’s books in this series. I think I maybe read four. I wish I’d read these when I was younger.
8. The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum
-I wish I’d read all the books in this series. I’d seen the movie several times over, but never read the book or any of the others set in Oz.
9. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
-I wasn’t even familiar with this story until I watched the Johnny Depp film version.
10. The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway
-Still never read this.
