West of the Moon tour (13)

Today I get a welcome break from talking about my own books.  Vicki and Lyndsey at Heaven Hell and Purgatory Book Reviews run a great feature called 'So I Say Thankyou For The Books', in which guests get to talk about some of the books we've loved and which have influenced or guided us.  You're bound to recognise many of the titles that have meant so much to me over the years... what would your own list contain?


  1. Oohh...went and looked over did read a lot. I read everything I could get my paws on - probably some highly unsuitable things. I never had to read to the headmistress though. I just went upstairs to the "big" school library while everyone else was doing that!

  2. Wow, there's so many books I read as a child... where would I start? Like you I read and read constantly, there's definately a lot in your list that were also in mine...
    In particular I loved the darker tales, The Wizard of Earthsea, The Dark Rising, and things like The Black Cauldron, The Hobbit of course, Elidor and Narnia... and strange old celtic folklore... It is an endless list really!
    Fun to remember though...

  3. Yes, there are so many more I could have mentioned. And now I want to do nothing but spend the next month re-reading old favourites! Sadly, life doesn't allow me that much time!
