Hi friends! I’m here with another Top 5 Tuesday hosted by Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads, and this week is another topic taking me back to my childhood! Or at least, a childhood I wish I’d had haha.
I don’t really remember what this is supposed to be about. All I know is that this is one of the most beloved children’s books ever. I wish that I had read it when I was younger, because it seems so wholesome and magical and pure.
Younger me was obsessed with the old, 1950s movie. Like, I’ve played through the DVD extras more times than I’ve seen other movies. But I never read the book until last year????? And that is an extraordinary regret of mine, because I could have known the Jabberwocky and the Mock Turtle much sooner.
Again: I was obsessed with the Disney movie, and yet I still haven’t read the book. I feel like there’s so much backstory that I’m missing. Plus, I need more Tinkerbell! And Captain Hook! And I’m curious to know if Peter Pan was ever actually a jerk!
I haven’t read this yet either and I’m sad about it. I haven’t read a Gaiman book, I haven’t read a horror book, and both those problems could have been solved if I had just read Coraline. But no, younger me was just too ignorant of future me’s problems.
I’ve read The Golden Compass three times. I’m not kidding. I don’t even know if I like the book or not but what I do know is, I wish I’d read the trilogy fully. I remember starting the sequel and getting distracted. Actually, that sounds just like me now.
So that’s it! Tell me your thoughts on this topic!
