what books do you consider important for your childhood?

Laís | 4 comments I really loved “Le petit prince”!! I actually read it again last year and it’s so crazy to remember what was I thinking when I first read!!

There's this common knowledge saying you're supposed to read Le Petit Prince in three different stages of you life and see how your vision on it has changed. i just read it while I was in high school, so I feel like I missed the chance to know what kid me would think about it

I’ve never heard of that one! I’ll have to look into it.

I think my childhood series was His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman. I’ve read the trilogy at least once a year since I was maybe 7 and each time is different. There’s always some new dimension to add based on what I’ve learnt since the last reread. And now there’s a BBC adaption so it’s gaining popularity again!

Lav, i know the tv show but never read the books.

for me, it was definitely the harry potter saga. i read philosopher's stone as soon as it came out in Brazil and it was just that for me, i was 9 yo and it was just so special

The books cover so many themes, I could go on for ages about them!! And there’s more books based on the same world so there’s lots to explore.

Harry Potter was such a huge part of my childhood as well, and it was always in the background in the culture anyway, being British. I have a whole shelf dedicated to HP and 16 pairs of HP socks........ which one was your favourite book?

I haven't read Le Petit Prince, but I do remember reading His Dark Materials when I was younger, they're great! And I loved Harry Potter too.

I remember finishing work at 11 and queuing for the midnight release of the last book.
My favourite was The Prisoner of Azkaban, though, I read that so many times that my copy is literally falling apart

Laís | 4 comments Harry Potter was my childhood, my cousins and I used to pretend we were the characters and play with “magic”!!

I’m reading again the trilogy, now it’s “the Order of the Phoenix”!!

what about the movies? do you like the adaptations? do you think of them as two different ways to tell the story? what is your favorite?

I can never decide about the movies, I enjoy them but they never quite matched up for me.
Also reading the books can take me straight back to being a kid but when I watch the movies now I feel really old!

my fave book used to be prisoner of azkaban but i spend a lot of time thinking about the order of the phoenix now, i can appreciate the politics a little more. i do prefer the books but the movies have their own place in my life too! my favourite movie is definitely the third, the cinematography is [chef’s kiss]
