We have been having fun with Top Ten Tuesday, so we decided we will do one every week. This bookish meme was hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, and has been going since June 2010! Since January 2018 Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl.
This week’s topic is Childhood Favorites. I really have to think about this topic. I think I’ll take a few books from each part of my childhod. Let’s take a look!
Max Chases the Moon This book is where it all started I think, haha. My mother told me that this was my favorite book when I was little. So much so, that she didn’t even have to hold the book to tell me the story every night. I’m sad I don’t own my copy of this book anymore. It would’ve been nice to have for when I have my own kids in the future.
Bearenstain Bears I loved these books as a child. All of them have lessons as well. They were all done in a way that was fun and interesting for children. I know I watched cartoons as well and even chapter books for children as they get older.
Goosebumps These books were actually pretty spooky when I was a kid, but I really enjoyed reading them. There was a membership for them and I used to get 3 of them every few months. Nickelodeon eventually had a TV show I watched as well.
The Babysitters Club I can’t remember if I read all of these, but I definitely enjoyed them. It’s funny looking back at these books. I remember I used to think they were huge, but seeing that they’re only around 150 pages makes me laugh. The Babysitters Club is also being made into a show on Netflix and I can’t wait to see how that turns out.
Nancy Drew My mother was a fan of Nancy Drew and because of that I did read a few of them. I remember enjoying them, but I’m not sure why I never continued reading more. Maybe my library didn’t have more? I really don’t remember.
Fear Street When the Goosebumps books weren’t really spooky anymore, I moved along with Fear Street. I’m sure if I were to read them now it would be a lot different, but these were definitely scarier when I was younger.
Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul This book came out in 1997, but I didn’t get it until a couple years later. In all honesty, I don’t remember a lot of the stories I read in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, but I remember enjoying them and relating to some in many ways.
Archie Comics I was reading Archie comics before Riverdale was set to be released. Years ago I remeber going to the grocery store with my mother and seeing the double digests next to the registers. I enjoyed many evenings curled up with these comics.
I’m sure there were more books I read during my childhood, but these are the ones that I can really remember. Did you read any of these as a child? Let me know what your childhood favorites were in the comments and feel free to leave your links as well!
