Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks topic is: Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit.
I read so many library books when I was a kid! Unfortunately, I don’t remember the titles anymore - I get a vague idea of a story or a character, but that’s about it. Some have stayed with me over the years, and others I loved so much that my mum bought me a copy all for myself! I still have the vast majority of the books she bought for me back then, but looking back on it, I don't think she realised what she was getting herself in for... bless her!
I’m not too sure what is meant by 'revisit' with this weeks topic. I love so many books from my childhood, but I don't think I'd go so far as to reread many of them now... the memories I have are so special, I don't want to ruin them! I’ve put a little spin on the topic, and chose my favourite books or series from my childhood that I still love thinking about today.
I own all three of these books, but I wasn’t able to find them to take pictures of. If I had to choose a favourite from the three, it would be Fantastic Mr Fox! I reread it about a zillion times, and the front cover was falling off the last time I saw it. Oh how I abused my poor books back then!
Nancy Drew (Carolyn Keene)
The Hardy Boys (Franklin W. Dixon)
I LOVED these books! I have dozens of books from each series, safely boxed away in the attic. I think this was where my love of mystery books began. They were so easy to read, and a lot of fun.
The Babysitters Club (Ann M. Martin)
I was obsessed with the BSC books when I was around 10-ish! My library had so many of these, and I built up a mini-collection over the years, too.
I don't own any of her books, but I remember reading quite a few of her Secret Seven books. I loved them so much!
The Mystery Club Series (Fiona Kelly)
I LOVED the Mystery Club series when I was 12/13! I don’t own a complete set (unfortunately), but you can see from the pictures just how many times I’ve read them!
Animorphs Series (K. A. Applegate)
As you can see, I had just a teeny tiny obsession with the Animorphs series! I almost own a full set... maybe one day I’ll manage to complete it *fingers crossed*. Rachel and Tobias were my ultimate OTP before I knew OTPing was a thing! This series made me fall in love with Sci-Fi, and I wish I’d kept up reading more books like them in my late-teen years. Out of all the books I've chosen for this list, the Animorphs series would be the ones I'd reread in a heart beat. I highly recommend them!
Have you read any of these books?? What did you think of them?
