    A series called Roman Mysteries by Caroline Lawrence - all about a girl and her family living near Rome and going on adventures I think the target age is anywhere from 8-12

    I would still read them but would get bored quickly because i've read them so many times i know what happens!

    I used to love the BFG as a child but upon learning about the author's questionable personal views I've come to resent his books.

    omg, I LOVED the worst witch when I was younger (the tv series was also a favourite when I was younger)
    Also used to read Malory Towers, Naughtiest Girl and a load of other Enid Blyton books
    The Witches was creepy as a kid also.

    I haven't read the book, but I used to watch the TV series on CITV quite a lot as a child. How does the book compare to it?

    I had this read to me in primary school (along with the rest of my class) by one of my teachers.

    As for myself, the only books I used to read religiously as a child were the Harry Potter books.

    I also really liked the 'Fighting Fantasy' series of books, in which you choose how the story unfolds by turning to specific page numbers.

    Didn't know it is such a special day today.

    My favorite book? the fairytales written by the Grimm brothers. Liked this stories and still almost know every single one of those. Today, I rather reading stories for adults. Although the sorts of fairytales by Grimm brothers is versatile and some are even for adults in my opinion.
