TTT: Top ten books from childhood

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly book meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl where every week you’re given a topic/theme and you list books that match up with the them. Make sure you link back to Jana and check what picks others have on their list!

I don’t remember many picture books aside from Bernstein Bears, Clifford and this old lady who had so many cats and she kept having to move around because of them. Even a train wasn’t enough…  I don’t remember that title at all. So I’m going with chapter books!

1. Baby-Sitter’s Club by Ann M. Martin. I actually went through a reread of some of these books earlier this year after Netflix announced they would be revamping the show.

Kristy's Great Idea (The Baby-Sitters Club, #1)
2. Baby-Sitter’s Little Sister books. Man, I loved these books when I was a kid. These were some of the first books I actually bought with my allowance. I always reread them too.
Karen's Witch (Baby-Sitters Little Sister, #1)
3. The Magic Attic Club. These are some of the only picture books  I do remember getting into. Did anybody else read these?
The Secret of the Attic (Magic Attic Club, #1)
4. American Girl Doll books were another doll series books I liked… before I was afraid of dolls.
Meet Samantha: An American Girl (American Girls: Samantha, #1)
5. The Box Car Children books. I wrote fanfiction for these books before I realized what fanfiction was. I don’t think that term was around when I was in second grade.
The Boxcar Children (The Boxcar Children, #1)
6. Nancy Drew books. I don’t remember a lot of these books but I do remember this one.
The Missing Horse Mystery (Nancy Drew, #145)
7. My cousin let me have her collections.  I was sad when my best friend lost them.

Horse Crazy (Saddle Club, #1)
8. Thoroughbred: Ashleigh series by Joanna Campbell. I have actually recollected these throughout the years.
Lightning's Last Hope (Thoroughbred: Ashleigh, #1)
9. Thoroughbred series by Joanna Campbell. I’ve collected some of these throughout the years too.
A Horse Called Wonder (Thoroughbred, #1)
10. Heartland. The Netflix series is very different from the books but I do like them. I believe these books took place in Virginia, but in the show they take place in Canada, close to Calgary I believe.  Plus there’s different characters.
Coming Home (Heartland, #1)


The other follow ups are Sweet Valley, Harry Potter, Princess Diaries, the Amelia Diaries, etc. I read these a bit later on. Harry Potter came out in 1997 after all. 

What are some books you read in your childhood? What are some of your favorites?

  1. The Boxcar Children were also on my list! I completely forgot about the American Girl books, but those for sure should’ve been on my list, I was obsessed with American Girl everything for like three years as a child haha.
