Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature/event hosted by The Broke and Bookish.
Today’s them is Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit
The Get Along Gang (I can’t be sure if it was this specific title or another). I was obssesed. Zipper Cat was my favourite character. I dressed up as him for Halloween. This was the first book I ever memorized. According to my mom, I could read it, but I remember Green Eggs and Ham being the first book I really read.
My Side of the Mountain, by Jean Craighead George; Where the Red Fern Grows, by Wilson Rawls; Bunnicula, by Deborah and James Howe.
These three were assigned school readings and I LOVED them. My Side of the Mountain was the one that I checked out of the library over and over. Perhaps the first two are more classic than Bunnicula, but this vampire-bunny is one of my go-to bizarre pop culture references and it is so exciting when someone knows what I’m talking about.
Animorphs, by K.A. Applegate; The Bailey School Kids, by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones; Goosebumps, by R.L. Stine.
Um, I was a child in the ’90s. Obviously I loved all of these. A friend of mine re-read all of the Goosebumps books recently. I think I may follow suit and pick a few titles out of these series to enjoy again.
Ameilia’s Notebook, by Marissa Moss, Captain Underpants, by Dav Pilkey; The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, by Jon Scieszka
I bought every one of these at a Scholastic Book Fair and still have them.
There was also this book series and I cannot remember the name of it or pretty much anything about it except that each book was told from a different character’s perspective and used a specific font/handwriting for that character. Maybe diary-style. Anyone know what I’m talking about?
