The books you read as a child help shape your personality, according to someone very clever on social media recently.
Well, here I am, in 11 books.
These are all the precious childhood favourites I’ve kept tight hold of, minus ‘Island of the Blue Dolphins’ by Scott O’Dell and ‘Down With Skool’ by Geoffrey Willams and Ronald Searle (must have got those out of my local library in Aberdeen).
‘The Strange Affair of Adelaide Harris’ by Leon Garfield is historical and funny… not a combination you come across too often! ‘Anne of Green Gables’ by L.M. Montgomery; a slice of sweet Americana.
I came to ‘Picnic at Hanging Rock’ by Joan Lindsay and ‘The Amazing Mr Blunden’ by Antonia Barber via their film versions.
Right, I’m leaving out these four AND all the others for immediate re-reading.
Anyone fancy showing me who they are, via their childhood faves?
