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.

What personal views are you referring to?

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.
