TOP BOOKS OF MY CHILDHOOD
~ AMERICAN GIRL ~
American Girl, even today is probably one of the most popular book series ever. I started these books very young and I still own my Samantha and Kaya box sets, with a little lonely copy about Kit. It was these books that began my love for historical fiction.
~ Little House on the Prairie ~
Oh man, these books (& TV series) was a HUGE part of my childhood. I devoured these books and quickly too. I would finish one and the immediately start the next book in the series.
~ Love Comes Softly ~
This series is one of my favourites of all time. And the movies are pretty fabulous too.
~ The Hobbit & LOTR ~
I couldn't do a post like this and not mention my favourite fantasy books ever!! They're the quintessential fantasy novels and in fact The Hobbit was the very first chapter book I ever read. It was these books that began my lifetime of nerdiness.
~The Babysitter's Club ~
I didn't read The Babysitter's Club as ferociously as these other book series, but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
~ Nancy Drew Mysteries ~
Nancy Drew Mysteries by Carolyn Keene were the first mysteries I ever read and I loved them growing up. I even have a ton of them up in my bookshelf.
~ Chronicles of Narnia ~
Along with The Hobbit and LOTR this choice has to be up here.
