Favourite Books from My Childhood

I've always loved books and since I was young I've needed to have at least one book to read (or reread) at all times. Here are some of my favourite books when I was growing up:
  • Nancy Drew
  • The Babysitters Club
  • Bad Jelly the Witch
  • The Chronicles of Narnia
  • Rebecca's World
  • Any books written by Tamora Pierce or Sheryl Jordan
  • The Hobbit
  • Goosebumps
Can you remember any of your favourite stories?

The Anne of Green Gables series and Gone With the Wind/Scarlett. STILL rereading them all these years later!

Erin said...

Yes to all of these--and wow, I thought I was the only one who knew about Ronia the Robber's Daughter! I reread Charlie and The Chocolate Factory and My Side of the Mountain countless times. I also got a strange pleasure from Catherine, Called Birdy.

I was obsessed with the Redwall series. So obsessed that I wrote my own version of a Redwall novel, starring myself as a Warrior Squirrel. It was 100 pages and I sent a synopsis to Brian Jacques, the author.

American Girl books

I had EVERY SINGLE Babysitters Club book there was. Anne Martin was my childhood hero. I'm a writer nowadays, and I credit those books with giving me my love for storytelling and ensemble casts in books.
