Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday: ten books from my childhood years I'd like to revisit. From Broke and Bookish

1. If You Give a Pig a Pancake
Yes, I am aware that this is a picture book. But do you see that pig?!?! It looks so cute. I remember doing this project in 1st grade because of this book. It was one of my writing pieces. I just want to read this to my cousin and future adopted kids. I think my story was If you give a duck a pineapple bun...or some other Asian bun
2. The Series of the Unfortunate Events
I remember marathon-ing this series in the 4th-5th grade. It's one of my favorite series. I love how Lemony Snicket interrupts when things get a little scary. His warnings got old tho... Count Olaf gave me some serious stalker vibes.
3. Dragon Slayer Academy
This series was just weird. I read almost every book *Feels shame*... The main character reminded me of Ron Weasley and there was an undercover girl. Girl power! 
4. Where the Sidewalk Ends
I loved a lot of the poems in this book. They were HILARIOUS. My favorite one was about the garden full of jewels and precious stones. The unicorn one was awesome too!
I remember reading & learning swear words from these books. They were so whimsical and fun. Roald Dahl is probably one of the many people responsible for my love of reading.
The epitome of a failed/horrible marriage
9. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
To this day, I still don't have a copy... :'(
10. Clementine
Even though I don't like tropical fruits
She's so weird and funny. I wonder how her parents even deal with her. She's absolutely ridiculous.


  1. Will you be mad at me if I said I haven't finished the Series of Unfortunte Events yet? OMG I need to lol! I love that you have Roald Dahl here though because he was on my list as well and I totally worship him!

    1. A pineapple bun is a kind of sweet bun predominantly popular in Hong Kong and Macau, though they are not uncommon in Chinatowns worldwide. They are made from sugar, eggs, flour, and lard. If you google image search it, a picture of a yellow bread with a top similar looking to a honeycomb should pop up.
