The Kiddy Tag! Books From My Childhood

Hello lovely readers! I have been tagged by the lovely LuceRebecca to do this fun tag which was created by TheClassyClassics. Below are the rules of the tag that she has set!

  1. Link to any of my posts so that I get to know who all have done this tag.
  2. Tag as many people as you can so that they get to know about this tag
  3. Answer all the questions honestly, even if any answers are silly
  4. Have fun and remember to go back to those days!


Question 1: What books were your favourite when you were a kid?

Well, the first proper books that I remember reading were mostly by Enid Blyton. I loved her Twins at St. Clare’s series and her Mallory Towers series – I read these obsessively when I was a child. I also loved The Secret Garden, Little Women and A Series of Unfortunate Events. Of course, my favourite book from my childhood has to be Harry Potter. I read the first Harry Potter book when I was 9 before they were super popular and I still have my Philosopher’s Stone edition with Dumbledore on the back where his beard is brown! I was close to the ages of Harry, Ron and Hermione so I pretty much grew up as they did and the series will always be a big part of my life.

Question 2: What age were you when you read your first book?

I honestly don’t know! My mum and dad read to me from a very early age and I think I started reading myself pretty early but I certainly can’t remember which book it was. I did love a kid’s book called The Rainbow Fish and another called We’re Going on a Bear Hunt so it could have been one of them!

Question 3: What was the best day of your life?

I’m not totally sure what my best day ever has been but in relation to books and reading I loved every time a new Harry Potter book came out – I remember reading the gigantic Goblet of Fire practically in one day – those days were all pretty amazing!

Question 4: What was that moment of your childhood when you felt that you wanted to stay as a child and never grow up?

I think I remember being pretty nervous going from primary to secondary school when I was 10 or 11 and kind of wishing I could stay as a child and not grow up any further! It just felt like a big jump and there were so many new people it was slightly overwhelming!

Question 5: What was your favourite cartoon TV show when you were small?

I liked The Teletubbies when I was really little! But in general I was more of a movie person – I was and pretty much still am a huge Disney fan. When I was around three years old I used to watch The Jungle Book over and over and over! I loved all the classic Disney movies but favourites include The Lion King, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, Sleeping Beauty, The Black Cauldron and Alladin!

Question 6: What is that one thing you loved for the longest time when you were small?

I loved Ballet! I went to ballet classes from the age of three until I was fifteen or sixteen. In my teens I was doing about five dance classes a week – I just loved it! I still love going to the Ballet at the theatre – my favourite dance company is Northern Ballet who are amazingly talented and so innovative.

I shall tag the amazing book bloggers below! Enjoy!
