- Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone: I read this, but after I saw the movie, and it didn't have the effect on me that it's had on many people my age. The sense of connectedness and passion that Pottermores have is something I feel I missed out on.
- A Monster Calls: So moving. This story is so full of love, pain, and acceptance. Every page is a catharsis. Also the artwork is invigorating, perfect for the story.
- The Phantom Tollbooth: The passion of wordplay is amazing and I wish I'd know of it sooner. A lot of blogs I've seen praise this book as THE book of their childhood, the one that made them love words. Even as an adult this book is an amazing accomplishment in understanding language and communication.
What about you guys? Which book from your childhood is still a great read for adults?
