Angelina Ballerina I almost died when I got them signed :woo:
I also had a Mermaid book which I loved to pieces, my alphabet books, and of course, Disney Princesses.
I was a weird child and I loved reading about Science and History so I loved reading those too

Yes well Enid Blyton wrote so many for all aged of children. There were the Secret Seven books also The famous five which were eventually made into a TV series. Does anybody remember The Mr Twiddle Stories? Not sure what age group these were aimed out however as a twelve year old I found these very funny.

Loved the Artemis Fowl series and Airman by Eoin Colfer, as well as millions of others - I was quite the bookworm!

I remember reading it twice after I finished it the first time because there were some absolutely hilarious moments in there!

I never read the others in the series though - have you?

These were probably the books that came to mind first for me as well! I can remember I read them all incredibly quickly, and found it so difficult to put them down. Probably still have them somewhere, aha



Asides from those, I read the Artemis Fowl books, and then the Alex Rider series etc. I, too, was a huge bookworm as a child.

I loved goosebumps books.
I had quite a few of them. In fact, i might still have them in my loft somewhere.

I liked mary kate and ashley books as well.
I had quite a few of those too and might still have them somewhere as well.

There where also several ones by jaqueline wilson i liked- such as candyfloss, jackie daydream and tracy beaker.

I was unfortunate enough to not have any of the books when i was little.
I loved the tv show though.
