This week is Top Ten Childhood Favorites. This is a neat topic, kind of nice to look back and take a break from all the newer stuff. So here are my favorites, in no particular order, books that just have sentimental value.
Star Man's Son - aka Daybreak 2250 AD (which is the cooler title). This is one of my favorite books of ever and an absolutely gripping post apoc.
Planet of Exile - probably my favorite SF book. And reading it now I see a lot of parallels to A Song of Ice and Fire- which is amazing since this is only like 120- some pages.
The Horse and his Boy - I remember very little but only that I loved this book as a kid, and enjoyed exploring another part of Narnia as well.
Tunnel Through Time - I must have read this a zillionish times. This book took total advantage of my childhood love of dinosaurs. And time travel in general. I love when the brontosaur steps on the time machine, fizzling it out, and causing all kinds of trouble for them- if I'm remembering it right?!?
The Sword of Shannara - I read this sooo many times growing up.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - another childhood fave. My teacher read this to us in third grade (and the sequel).
The Cricket in Times Square - perfection.
Lucky Starr and The Pirates of the Asteroids - this whole series of YA SF by Isaac Asimov
Tom Swift and his Jetmarine - okay this whole series. I think I saw these somewhere, maybe a book fair, and they're so... retro! They had such evocative titles... usually gadget related, but not always- some other titles were Tom Swift and the Asteroid Pirates and Tom Swift in the Caves of Nuclear Fire.
A Princess of Mars
By The Light of the Green Star - all the Green Star books really.
