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!

    1. It was amazing -- Elizabeth ran away and moved to London where she became a scullery maid!

  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!

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of:  My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend , which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother. I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: Libraries and Bookstores!!

Today I am spotlighting the setting of:  Libraries and Bookstores , which I would loosely define as any book that largely takes place at a library or bookstore or involves characters that work at a library or bookstore. What could be more lovely to a book lover than a book with characters that also love books?!  I love this mix of genres with this setting -- cozy mystery, contemporary romance, UF, YA, romantic suspense, sci-fi. I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let me know! Have you ever read a book set
