Top 15 Childhood Books I'd Love to Revisit
Kel Tuesday, March 24, 2015 top10
I decided to use this topic to shine the spotlight on some lesser known books and series. At least, I think they're lesser known. Maybe all of you read these as a kid. >.>
I don't even know how many Saddle Club and Pony Pals books I read. Probably a bazillion, because horses! I read a ton of the main American Girl books, but I really loved their history mystery series. It had new characters from different time periods in each book. I also read a number of Dear America and Royal Diaries books that left big impressions.
On the action front, I read lots of Animorphs, the whole Broken Sky series, every Dinotopia adventure I could find, and the whole 2099 series (which had some of the creepiest covers).
The Astrokids series was a little like that Disney Channel movie "Zenon" in setting, but with younger characters and more sensible clothes. ;) The Jewel Kingdom and Avalon: Web of Magic were both series featuring young girls with magic. Like many Scholastic paperback series, The Jewel Kingdom has faded into out-of-print obscurity, but Avalon recently got new life with pretty new covers.
The Magic Attic Club series was like American Girl, but with modern girls who played dress up and a magic mirror took them to other times, which afforded a lot a variety. It even had a doll line for a while.
Running Out of Time and The Secret of Platform 13 were two of my favorite books as a kid. I reread both multiple times. :)
That's it for this round of 10! Thanks for stopping by and check back tomorrow for this week's Updates! In which I'm taking it easy. :)
