Top Ten Tuesday | Revisiting Childhood
For some of us, revisiting our childhood is like a trip down a nostalgic lane that floods us with happy memories. My childhood was one of many things; laughter and family, memories and good times, and of course, books. From a young age, I cannot help but imagine my parents were instilling in me a love of books and reading without even realizing they were doing this.
1. Addie Porter, Meant to be Mine | This might be an usual choice since she's not a main character in Becky Wade's charming romantic comedy novel, but I do remember loving her character - even if she was young and therefore, not a "primary" character whose characteristics we get to know. She had an impish personality that was 100% charm.
2. Elsa and Anna, Frozen | Okay, I know this is stretching it since these Disney sisters first appeared on movie screens and then inside the bookish world, but what can I say? I want to see more of their world. Plus, I really like the sister bond.
3. Felicity Merriman, Felicity Stories (American Girl) | When I think of my childhood books or the characters in them, no list would be complete without American Girl. As a kid, Felicity was one of the dolls I most wanted. I eventually got her (when I was a bit older) by saving my pennies. A small-screen film was made based on her stories, and I loved it. Perhaps its the time period I find most fascinating though I do like Samantha too. Fun fact: Shailene Woodley (of the Divergent series) starred as Felicity.
4. Lucy, The Chonicles of Narnia | I adore Lucy. Her unwavering faith is precious, and something to aspire to. I know technically, Lucy (and her siblings) do "grow up" over the course of the series though of the books I've read (three, I think), I didn't feel like we ever got to "know" her as an adult.
