Rate this Book / Post

Note: This is on behalf of my 9 year old daughter Ankita. Words are mine but it’s what she felt and liked!!

Ankita had so much fun reading these in 2018!

2018 in my life can be remembered as a year when I finally gave in to my mom’s wish and efforts of making a non reader like me into a reader and though there were a few books I had earlier too read reluctantly, this is a list of books where I discovered that “reading is one of the best things which one can do for oneself”..

Some of these books were already bought by my mom for me thinking that I will be a born reader like her (which turned out otherwise) and most of them we chose and bought online!!

So, this is my list of books from 2018 which 8-10 year olds will find interesting!!

  1. George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl
  2. Matilda by Roald Dahl
  3. The whistling school boy by Ruskin Bond
  4. The Enchanted Wood by Enid Blyton
  5. Arabian Nights by Pegasus Young Readers
  6. The Magic Drum and other favorite stories by Sudha Murthy
  7. The Upside Down King by Sudha Murthy
  8. Grandma’s Bag of Stories by Sudha Murthy
  9. The Bird with Golden Wings by Sudha Murthy
  10. Five on a Treasure Island: Famous five series by Enid Blyton
  11. 51 stories of Akbar Birbal: Tiny Tot Publications
  12. Five o’clock tales by Enid Blyton
  13. Six o’clock tales by Enid Blyton
  14. Malgudi days by RK Narayan
