Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by the awesome ladies at The Broke and the Bookish. Apparently, they are overly fond of list-making and love to share their bookish lists with the rest of us book nerds. =) We're game.
This week's topic is the Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or Teen Years) That I Would Love To Revisit:April's Picks:
I was pretty limited on what I could read growing up. The shelves at home were full of adult novels, and that's what stemmed my obsession with VC Andrews books. I read them all. At least the ones before she died, none of the garbage that came out after. The Sweet Valley Twins and Baby Sitters Club, I remember making my gram take me to the library every weekend so I could take some of them out. :) A Wrinkle in Time was one of my favorite "have to read for class" books. They told us to read the first 2 chapters and I finished it that night. Woops. And The Eye of the World. I started reading that fantasy series back in HS. A boy I liked had a bunch in his locker and he lent them to me. I read up to number 10. I'd love to get back to them, but it's been so long, I'll have to re read them all, and those books are huge!
I remember checking out and re-checking out Chicken Soup with Rice by Maurice Sendak for weeks on end from the library until my mom forced me to pick something new. And so then I read Bunnicula and Snot Stew a few times each. As my love of reading progressed, I added all of the Little House, Anne of Green Gables and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books to my reading list. I was such a reader, even at an early age, that it was hard to narrow my list of favorites from that era down to just ten. I mean, I didn't even have room for The Babysitters Club or the Sweet Valley High books! :P
