Who else /AsterixtheGaul/ here?
My kids will read those books, they're based af.
Pretty much all of tamora pierces works kept me company, right up until now.
Read Wizard's First Rule in 5th grade, finished up to Temple of the Winds in 6th grade, and had to wait till college until I could finish that series.....but I toughed it out in the end and felt it wasn't worth it afterwards :/
I read Ulysses when i was 16 or 17. I dont remember a lot, i remember i thought some part of book was "baroquish". I remember also going to my fellows, readers of Tom Clancy or GRR Martin and bragging i read post-modern literature. Beautiful times
I really liked my German Lord of the Rings too, I recall reading it to my dad as a child after he had read The Hobbit to me when I was younger, he wanted me to get good at reading.
We both enjoyed it, I like to think that we bonded over that experience.
Back then I got more into Treasure Island than Robinson Crusoe as far as I can remember
I also really enjoyed pic related on my own, sky pirates, wizards on floating rocks, it being one of the few fantasy settings that wasn't a Tolkien clone and the way the setting developed and evolved over the course of the series really appealed to me.
Amazing illustrations too
These were a big part of my childhood, also this one book that had a bunch of kids on an island in the lake just having adventures, sailing and making mischief by an Arthur something. Can't recall much about the book besides that I loved it and that it seemed unfair that kids could go and have such great fun when I couldn't go anywhere in the city. Cant find the book on the nets with what I have, sorry.
Arthur Ransome. You might be interested to know it's actually a series of books, not just one.
i was forced to read this serie and skipped a ton of pages
>tfw you will never attend a Redwall feast in a year when Ambrose Spike has brewed his finest rhubarb wine.
Broken Sky. I've never seen or heard anyone ever mention it, but I really enjoyed it. The cover caught my eye one day when I was shopping with my mom, so I asked her to get it for me. I liked it so I ended up getting all of them.
Picture isn't mine though, got it from Google.
i never had anyone to play with, so i just read them. i had so many of the expansions.
>his dark materials
>dalemark (and all of diana wynne jones' stuff desu)
>lost years of merlin
>ender's game/shadow quartet
>lord of the rings
>probably a bunch more i can't remember
good times desu
I read this a lot. I remember watching Beelzebub many years later, and being confused that it had a demon bird called an Ak-Baba in it, given that it's a creature specific to this series. Turns out Japan made a Deltora Quest anime that never got any American press. Blew my mind.
I owned that entire collection of choose your own adventure books and they are brutal.

Deltora Quest was pretty fun. The ending blew me away as a kid even though in hindsight it's super obvious. My favorite story was probably either the one about the Opal or the Lapis Lazuli though. The Ra-Kacharz and the Hive were pretty cool concepts
and Shel Silverstein poetry collections (if they count)
>tfw you will never live in prehistoric Europe
Haven't read the last couple though.
That was great. Pic related was my favourite book.
This one was pretty neat, has anyone here read it?
Read a few of these as a kid. Never did finish the series.
and of course Roald Dahl, though never Charlie and the factorieuse du chocolate
I worshipped Darren Shan in middle school. Then I I started getting older as the demon books were coming out and I saw them for the shit they were. Never did finish that series.
Traditional English books for children that nobody has heard of, comin' through.
Am I the only one who read these?
>tfw always thought the parts where Mark and Courtney were fucking around in the real world were more interesting than Bobby's adventures in faggot lands A-Z
I went to see the eragon movie for my birthday as a kid after having read the books....that was a disappointing birthday
The only movie disappointment that topped that as a child was the last airbender
