Beneath her mask of beauty lay a web of violent death 😳

This week is Books I Wish I Had Read As A Child.
I loved The Secret of NIMH but only recently read this.
These look amazing.
I would have devoured these as a youngster.
All the awesome YA books that are now out.
I read Fablehaven as a kid and loved it!!! I remember not being able to put it down, and being so captivated by the world building.ReplyDelete
Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH is on my list, too. Books I Wish I'd Read When I Was YoungReplyDelete
YES TO ALL THE SCOOBY-DOO!!! Also, I'm with you on all the great YA is out now and not when I was growing up. I had to survive on Sweet Valley High and Lightning by Dean Koontz.ReplyDelete
Omg Scooby Apocalypse looks amazing?! 😱 That cover is giving me major *grabby hands* feels! I need that comic in my life right now please... I've never heard of Fablehaven but it looks so good. Great list!ReplyDelete
OOh nice ones!! I still need to read Extinction Trials and the rest of Scooby Apocalypse! The rest are new to me ones entirely. I think at the time of writing my post, I wasn't really understanding the question in the right terms. Plus the "child" part tripped me up even more. Had it been "teen" I might have done better, but I still was looking at it as "regretful." Hence the reason I totally changed the topic!ReplyDelete
Here's my Tuesday Post
Have a GREAT day!
Old Follower :)
Ooh, I bet I would have enjoyed The Secret Zoo too. Who doesn't want to sneak into a zoo?? That's even better than a museum!ReplyDelete
I bet scooby-apocalypse would be awesome to read as a kid.ReplyDelete
Great list! I love The Secret of NIMH but I've never read the book.ReplyDelete
I think you'd love The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. Honestly, the humour in it holds up really well for adult readers, too. (But no pressure to read it).ReplyDelete
Hey, I actually read 2 and 3 as a kid. Douglas Adams was big, when I was growing up, and I saw the move and read the secrets of Nimh. I wonder, if 35-40 years from now, teens will be reading a lot of the YA books we are reading now. There are some authors, who I think have managed to become new "classics", but I am curious.ReplyDelete
Scooby Apocalypse! lol Great list!ReplyDelete

So many of your choices look so cute - I definitely equate cute animals with younger reads.ReplyDelete
The Secret Zoo definitely would have been something I'd have read as a child, I loved animals (and still do!)ReplyDelete
Great list! I still have Fablehaven on my TBR!!ReplyDelete
My Top Ten
I read Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH as a child...and loved it. I still love it. And Scooby Apocalypse? One of my favs. Great list! :DReplyDelete
Yes for Scooby and Fablehaven. I love the Fablehaven books so much. I also read The Secret Zoo a few years back. When I was a kid, I was reading adult books but then I don't think we had all the cool books then that we do now!ReplyDelete
I feel like a teacher read that Rats of Nihm book to me as a kid...or at least it sounds familiar. I obviously don't remember it at all.ReplyDelete
Top Ten (and all of Cotugno's books) would have been right up my alley as a kid/teenager.ReplyDelete
I see a bunch I think my son would really enjoy. I think he would love Cats of Tanglewood Forest and the Fablehaven books look interesting.ReplyDelete
I didn't read a lot as a kid. The books I did read were all non fiction about plants, animals & dinosaurs. No surprise there lolReplyDelete
Karen @ For What It's Worth
What a great list! I wish I had read Top Ten when I was younger too!ReplyDelete
Scooby Apocalypse looks like so much fun. I kind of want to read it now.ReplyDelete
I adored MRS. FRISBY AND THE RATS OF NIMH when I was a kid, both the book and the movie. It was scary, but SOOO good :) I tried to read HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE as a kid and it was just too weird for me. I have a feeling I would have the same reaction to it as an adult :)ReplyDelete
The Secret Zoo looks like a great adventure story! I might have enjoyed reading that as a child. Here's my Top Ten Tuesday List!ReplyDelete
I wish I'd have read The Hitchhikers Guide too. Love the cover to The Secret Zoo. Great TTT, Greg! :)ReplyDelete
I LOVED the Secret of NIMH! That series seems to be popular today!ReplyDelete
Mmm - a web of violent death - lol.ReplyDelete
And Mrs Frisby - oh yes, I wish I'd read that as a child.
Murder off the Record has such an epic tagline! And I am digging the bombshell on the cover! You know what, other than the Douglas Adams title, I didn't know any of these books, so your list and a couple of others are such a great learning curve for me!ReplyDelete
Guess what? The Cats of Tanglewood Forest was $1.99 as an ebook on Monday and I nabbed it! Did you know there is a companion book? 👍✨ReplyDelete
Oh Fablehaven and The Cats of Tanglewood Forest seem like such fun reads!ReplyDelete
Taken literally, that tagline makes absolutely no fucking sense. So her real face is a web of violent death? Like a spider web with the words 'violent death' written across it, ala Charlotte's Web? teeheeReplyDelete
Seriously though, I wish YA in general was a thing when I was young! Like I guess it might have been a category, but my bookstore and library certainly didn't have them! And all the books marketed toward teens (I shouldn't say ALL, but most) were of a similar style it seemed. Or again, those that I had access to. What a time it is now, to have so many choices!ReplyDelete
I agree about the YA books. It seems like nothing like that was around when I was growing up.ReplyDelete
Great tagline. So, not only did I not read any of those books as a kid... I still haven't read them. 😕 Hopefully someday!ReplyDelete
How old are the first few? I don't remember ever coming across them as a child. Great list ♡ReplyDelete
I completely agree about all the YA books which are out now, I would have loved to have had the variety there is now. I mean, YA wasn't even a thing when I was younger, it was just starting with the weird teen section at my local bookshop which was essentially a single shelf for me to choose from. I found some great books, but there are so many more out now. And you've not read Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy? It's really good, it's my kind of humour so I enjoyed it.ReplyDelete
That tagline would be perfect for Black Widow <3 Also I don't think I could have read Hitchhiker's as a kid. It was tough for me to get through as an adult, tho totally worth it!ReplyDelete
I've never thought of Hitchhiker's Guide as a kids' book, but that cover does make it look like one! (I did read it as a teenager, so I guess that kind of qualifies as being a kid. LOL!)ReplyDelete
Nicole @ Feed Your Fiction Addiction
I love the Hitchhiker's Guide books - they're all so much fun. :)ReplyDelete
Lauren @ Always Me
My childhood was way before Harry Potter and the amazing range of books available for kids now! I did read Mrs Frisby at school but I remember nothing about it now. I never liked the Hitchhiker's Guide though!ReplyDelete
I love that teaser!ReplyDelete
oh my gosh, I totally forgot about Fablehaven until I saw the cover!
