Day 24: Favourite childhood book

When I was little my grandma used to take me to the library. She likes to tell me how I would lend a pile of books that was nearly as tall as I was myself. The librarians would say that I was both theirs biggest, and smallest, lender.

I don’t remember any specific books from back then. But I remember reading and re-reading a book about horses when I was in primary school. After a Google search I found it. The name was Silver Brumby’s Daughter by Elyne Mitchell.


At the age of 10 I had finished most of the books that I found interesting in the children’s section, and asked my my mom to recommend something from her own bookshelf. She handed me The Eyes of the Dragon by Stephen King. That book set me on a path to read all of the King and Koontz books she owned (not a few).


As a teenager I got pulled into the universe of David Eddings, reading all of his fantasy series, starting with The Belgariad.

  1. Susan Cooper’s “The Dark is Rising” series. I still had my set until this summer, when I gave it to my cousin who said she loved Harry Potter and she already had her nose in it right after!
