Top Ten Books From My Childhood That I'd Love to Revisit
1. Maximum Ride
I loved these books. I think it was kind of the beginning of everything Sci-fi for me.
2. The Mother-Daughter Book Club
I STILL love this book series. I actually think there might be a 7th one out... I'm not sure...But I grew up with these girls. One of my favorite series ever.
3. The Name of This Book is Secret
Another book series I still absolutely adore, and finished I think...in 6th grade. So not all child-y. Really reminded me of the power of a narrator and how humorous a book could be.
4. Princess Diaries
Am I cheating a bit here? Yes. I read the first few in like 5th grade, and then stopped for a while after continuing the rest of them. But these books are so cute, and Mia is hilarious. Love the movies too :)
5. Diary of a Wimpy Kid
I think this would be on every boy's list. Might be one of the only books some of them have picked up actually. I personally thought it was super funny and kept laughing throughout the entire thing.
6. Ramona Series
Classics. I think that no book character really grew up and really showed her true self as well as Ramona Quimby did. I personally just adore Beverly Cleary.
7. Roald Dahl books (especially Matilda)
Matilda was the first amazing heroine. She was so smart and different and really showed the power of a character. All of the other Roald Dahl stories are so good too.
8. Junie B. Jones Series
She is HILARIOUS. I read her books to my sister sometimes and I still crack up. I feel like she never gets old :)
9. There's a Boy in the Girl's Bathroom
My 3rd grade teacher read this book to us and I remember loving it and then going home and reading it again. I think it really shows what goes inside a "bad"character, and it taught me a lot of lessons I needed to learn as a kid.
10. The Sisters Club
Best for last. I honestly adore these books, still do, and they go on my shelf right next to Harry Potter and A.S. King. I actually wrote to the author, that's how much I loved these books!
