Top Ten Tuesday XI

Top 10 Books From My Childhood (Or teen years) That I Would Love To Revisit

So I haven't done this in awhile...

I decided to go with books from late elementary/early middle school, and I was surprised that I was actually able to come up with this many. There's others I could list but I believe these were the most read. I feel like I didn't really read as much as I would have liked to nor did I finish certain series when I was the right age to do so. Sometimes I wish I had. But this prompt has me feeling a bit nostalgic, and while I might not go back and read most of these ever again, I do remember enjoying them way back when. I realize I have always struggled with this. I love reading, but sometimes I just...couldn't, and still can't. 

These are in no particular order, because I am a lazy bum...

I read this in middle school, at the same time as my mom. I feel like this was the first real series that I ever finished, and I quickly read through or listened to each. I've always meant to go back and reread them all. I think I might have listened to a few again, but never the entire series... 

I don't remember how many of these I actually read, but I went through this mystery phase and bounced between various series, just like this one. Gosh, these were fun books.

Another mystery series, but a bit lighter. I know I read several. So much fun. :)

Again, another light read. I remember reading several from this fun, cute little series.

I know I didn't read nearly half of all the Cam Jansen books, but again, I read plenty during my little mystery high. I vividly remember the birthday cake one. :P

And who didn't read Magic Treehouse??? I remember I read the Medieval one in one sitting, a first for me back then. I know I never finished the series (again), or what there was of it back then, but I remember really enjoying those that I did read.

This is one of my personal favorites. Seriously. I still have all my copies, though I never finished reading the entire series. But most of. And I wouldn't mind rereading through them, they were just so funny and perfect.

This is probably the only Marvin Redpost book I ever read but I remember it so vividly. And holy heck, it's as old as me, too!

And who didn't read good ole' Junie B.? Sometimes I feel sad that I gave my precious collection away. xD

Gosh, I loved this book. I had to have read it at least twice, which of course never happens with me. I wonder if I still have it around here, somewhere.....

Well? What book's did you all come up with? Feel free to link down in the comments and I'll be happy to check out your Top Ten for this week! :)


  1. I forgot all about Cam Jensen - I remember really liking her as a kid

    1. So true. They were pretty fun books. :)

  2. Great list. I loved The Boxcar Children and the Narnia books when I was a kid.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  3. Ahh how come I haven't heard of a lot of these?! I loved Junie B. Jones and the Magic Treehouse, but everything else.. :O

    1. Really?? :P Well, I suppose a few of them might have been a bit more obscure back then. But I still see most of them on the shelves today. :)
