Top 5 Wednesday is created by Gingerreadslainey. Each week there is a new bookish topic, where everyone can join and create their top 5 list. You can find more information on the Top 5 Wednesday goodreads group. This week’s topic is:
-This can include Middle Grade (but try to recommend more than just Harry Potter and Percy Jackson!) Feel free to talk about your childhood faves or more recent reads.
This post was supposed to be out last Wednesday, but I didn’t manage to post it in time. I’m posting it this week instead because I’m unable to write a post on this week’s topic. I’m currently in the car on my way home from west Norway.
I want to start this post with my favourite children’s author. Astrid Lindgren’s books are a staple read for every Scandinavian kid. Her books are very famous and have been translated into many languages around the world.
Here are some of my favourite books from her:
- Pippi Longstocking (Pippi Långstrump #1)
- The Brothers Lionheart
- Ronia, the Robber’s Daughter
- Mio, My Son
- Emil i Lönneberga (Emil i Lönneberga #1)
Matilda by Roald Dahl
I remember reading Rolad Dahl’ s books as a kid. Especially the book Mathilda. I loved both the book and the movie.
Tow-Truck Pluck by Annie M G Schmidt
My mom read this book for me and my brother several times when we were young. I really loved this book, it was funny and weird.
A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket
I didn’t read this book as a kid. I read the 3 first books in this series last year, and loved them.
