Where The Wild Things Are
Little House on the Prairie series (i'm allegedly named after her)
Chalet School series (i wanted to go to a boarding school)
The wonderful Green Knowe series, which i believe is being amalgamated into a film or films as we speak. very exciting.

Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Beastly Boys and Ghastly Girls

The Wizard of Earthsea

Wuthering Heights

Far From the Madding Crowd

(the last two from when I was going through my 'obsession with obsession' phase!)

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.

I tried to read this one when I was 12 but I'm really not cut out for fantasy. I had to do a review of it in English in front of the class and my teacher knew straight away I hadn't read it all the way through. Bluffing didn't work then but it got me through my History of Art paper a treat, and even got good comments filtered back to my school by the examiners.

Mr Meddles Muddles
Swallows and Amazons

I love those books and can't wait for Evie to be old enough for me to read them to her as I've still got them all.

As a child loved the far away tree series now as a school librarian love Robert Muchamore Cherub Series (I use the first in series as one of the 24 titles in my year 7 (age 11) reading challenge in the thriller secton) and the John Flannagacn's Rangers apprentice and outcast series!
