Top 10 Books From My Childhood That I Would Love To Revisit


Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the fab ladies at The Broke and the Bookish!



This was a fun blast from the past -- I was basically into cheesy horror books or super girly books about sleepovers and pen pals.

  2. Oohhh...I think I read some Elizabeth books when I was in middle school! That cover is SO ringing some bells! Obviously I didn't keep them, because once I found my paranormal books, I stopped reading contemps, but I so read that one for a time or two!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  3. I never read the Sweet Valley High books, but I remember the TV show a little bit, my sisters used to watch it all the time! I used to read a lot of super girly books too, my reading tastes have changed so much over the years! Happy Reading! :)

    1. I remembered you loved SVU too -- I never read any Sweet Valley High but loved SVU and the series after, Elizabeth, where she ran away to London and became a maid! I would seriously re-read them all!!

  8. This is fantastic! I vaguely remember Sleepover Friends, I feel like I may have read a few of those. One of my friends was obsessed with Sweet Valley (Twins, High, AND U) but I could never get into them, though I read a few. And my brother LOVED Goosebumps! GREAT list, this is such a blast from the past!

  9. Omg, I feel like I must've missed out on some great childhood reads here! I don't even think I read a single one when I was little. >_< Thanks for stopping by my list!

  10. I almost put the Fear Street books on my list. I'm not sure why I was so obsessed with them in middle school since I'm a huge wimp when it comes to horror. And yeah for Bunnicula!

Blurb from Goodreads:
Linda has an idiosyncratic home life: her parents live in abandoned commune cabins in northern Minnesota and are hanging on to the last vestiges of a faded counter-culture world. The kids at school call her 'Freak', or 'Commie'. She is an outsider in all things.
