As a teenager, my favourite book was Flowers in the Attic, by Virginia Andrews. What was your favourite book growing up? Do you still enjoy it?

I'm a huge Stephen King fan now, and IT is one of my favourite books. I was never allowed to read them when I was very young though - my mother saw the front cover of Carrie, and refused to let me read a book where the girl is dripping in blood on the front cover!

I had many favorites as a teenager because I loved reading and still do. A couple of my favorites were A Tree Grows in Brooklyn (I've lost track of how many times I've read this) and Flowers in the Attic.

When I was growing up my favorite book series was 'Little Critter'. Now I really enjoy reading Lurlene McDaniel books. I also like books based on true things, like titanic, but not exactly what happened, like the story within the story.

Growing up as in when I was a lot younger? Since I kind of still am growing up..lol. Well there was a book my dad always read to me, called the Little Red Hen. I had a really small version of it, meaning that the size of the book was small, but I still loved it. And I see that yours was Flowers In the Attic. I loved that book! It was soo great! Did you read the rest of the books that went along with that series? I didn't.

My favorite book growing up was Bridge to Terebithia. I want to purchase a copy of it. I just saw a preview on TV that they are turning it into the movie. However, the movie does not look anything like I remember from the book. It seems to be based around this imaginary world they created. While that was an important part of the book, it was not the first thing that comes to mind when I remember it. Still, I am excited to see the movie.
