Thanks for making me do this list, Zarah. I now realize I also read a lot of pictures


 From Neni Sta Romana-Cruz, sectoral rep for reviewers

1. Heidi by Johann Spyri (child's version and "real" book, eventually gave me nightmares about being orphaned)
2. Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Maud Montgomery
3. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
4. Little Men by Louisa May Alcott
5. An Old-Fashioned Girl by Louisa May Alcott
6. Book of Greek myths (esp fascinated by the Cyclops and Ulysees and Daedalus, stories first told to me by my mother)
7.  Bridge of San Luis Rey by Thornton Wilder (the idea of dying at the precise moment you are fated to, possessed me)
8.  Nancy Drew series by Carolyn Keene
9.  Judy Bolton series by Margaret Sutton
10. Trixie Belden series by Julie Campbell Tatham
11. Hardy Boys series by Franklin W. Dixon (in reality, also Carolyn Keene)
12. Rose in Bloom by Louisa May Alcott
13. My Fair Lady by Lerner and Loewe (memorized the lyrics)
14. Penrod by Booth Tarkington
15. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
16. Father Brown stories by GK Chesterton
17. Phyllis Mcginley's Christmas Poems collection that Doreen gave me
 18. An old book (a PECO publication?) my mother owned with (clumsy) colored illustrations but rich with Philippine folk tales, riddles, proverbs, etc--a book i still hope to find in our family archives
19. My first book given to me on my birthday by a male cousin, Millard Teopaco--a circus pop-up book with intricate fold-out pages--another book I have to find.

These books were "forcefed" me by my mom and my Lucero cousins: Doreen Gamboa Fernandez, Bee and Patsy Monzon, Sylvia Mayuga...Decades after, I have them to thank for my love of the written word.
