Top Ten Tuesday


Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish. Every Tuesday there’s a different topic. This week is top ten books from my childhood/teen years I would revisit.

10. bsc Baby-Sitter’s Club Series – Ann M Martin. This was one of the first series I started to collect with my own money and eventually I had the whole series plus the super-editions and the mysteries spin-off. It also made for some great bonding since my little sister was into the Baby-Sitter’s Little Sister series and I would usually buy one for me and one for her.

9. book of magic Circle of Magic Series – Tamora Pierce. My first taste of a fantasy world. I never really looked back after this series.

8. book of names Diadem Series – John Peel. First experience with worlds other than earth. I really liked the puzzles in this series that the reader could solve along with the characters.

7. magician's nephew The Chronicles of Narnia – C.S. Lewis. The whole set was a Christmas present from my Godparents and after reading it, I insisted most of my family borrow them to experience the awesomeness.

6. animorphs Animorphs – K.A. Applegate. Me and my friends were so obsessed with this series.

5. sky is falling The Guests of War trilogy – Kit Pearson. The author visited my school and that’s how I heard of her books so they hold a special place in my heart.

4. tower treasure Hardy Boys Series – Franklin W Dixon. I collected this series more than any other as a child. Every sick day was a re-read of this series.

3. boxcar children The Boxcar Children – Gertrude Chandler Warner. I have three siblings so there were four of us, just like the book, but they never wanted to play boxcar children with me:(

2. harry potter Harry Potter Series – J.K. Rowling. Because who doesn’t want to re-visit Hogwart’s at every opportunity.

1. Anne Anne of Green Gables – Lucy Maud Montgomery. I actually grew up where this series is set so it hold such a huge, special place in my heart.
