TTT 10 Books I want to share with future children

Morning mortals! Today I’m finding it hard to get in the mindset of this theme mainly because I’m not overly keen on the idea of one day having children. However, I do fully intend to be a weird auntie to all of my friends eventual offspring so I’m just picturing that…

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the beyond amazing The Broke and Bookish. If you don’t already you should head over there and check out the list of all the amazing book bloggers who take part, it’s a great way to find other bloggers who might read the same books as you!

The Hobbit

I remember my mum reading me The Hobbit when I was very little and it’s such a happy memory I would definitely like to share with some little uns in the future.

White Boots

One of those books I absolutely adored when I was younger. I was a (very poor) figure skater myself so it was nice to read a book on that theme. There’s also something nice about reading books written for children in another time.

The Edge Chronicles

Some of my absolute favourite books from childhood (ok still). There are just so many to read and the illustrations are beautiful.

The Roman Mysteries

The books that sparked my passion for ancient history, I’d be foolish not to pass them on to the next generation.

Harry Potter

Need I say more? We are gradually obtaining the illustrated editions, perfect for storytime.

Classic Fairytales

Maybe we’ll start out with the ones that are a little less gory, but either way they’ll learn about the dark bits of the originals…

The Hate U Give

Mainly because I wish I could have read this book when I was a lot younger. I think it would have helped me to grasp some ideas and ways of thinking that I didn’t get to until I was in my late teens.


I want to be there when they read them for the first time! And also to warn them not to start with Colour of Magic…

Jane Austen

Another one that I loved as a younger human, particularly Pride and Prejudice. I think they’re one of those things you should read and enjoy before anyone spoils it for you with forcing you to study it.

Dr Seuss

Lastly, another set of books I was read as a child, they have such happy memories for me I’d love to pass that on.

So there you go, 10 books I want to pass on to the next bookish youths. Don’t forget to link me to your TTT in the comments and let me know if we have any similar choices!
