This week’s topic is your top 5 books from your childhood! This was super easy for me because I’ve been an avid reader since I was 5. The hardest part was narrowing down to only 5! I decided to only include books I loved from the ages of 5-10! At age 11, I pretty much went straight from chapter books to young adult books.
1. The Baby-Sitters Club by Ann M. Martin
This was probably my favorite series. I read them constantly. This was my favorite one from the series because it’s the one we find out that Stacy has diabetes. This was super important to me as a child because I also had an invisible illness and I felt so so good reading that representation.
2. Cam Jansen Mysteries by David A. Adler
3. Junie B. Jones by Barbara Park
4. Amelia Bedelia by Peggy Parish
5. Harry Potter by She Who Shall Not Be Named
Okay, I know how awful the author is now and she’s effectively ruined the series for me, but as a child I really really loved these books. I picked up my first one when I was 8 years old and it was instant love for me. This series is responsible for my love of reading. Even if I truly do not like it (or the author) now.
Did you read any of these books as a child? Did you love them as much as I did? I’d love to hear about it below!
