Tomorrow I'm going to BookCon, which is a lovely book convention I went to last year, and so I figured I'd dedicate this Top 5 to some of my favorite series to read growing up.
1. Nancy Drew: I started reading Nancy Drew because my Mom recommended me them cause she had read them when she was young as well, and I loved them. I was super into mystery stories when I was a kid (which might seem really weird, but whatever-- I grew up on Scooby Doo), so having an entire series of books dedicated to a female detective was right up my alley. I also heard recently that there's going to be a new Nancy Drew comic coming out soon, so I'm looking forward to that.
2. The Boxcar Children: Whenever I mention these books, not a lot of my friends know what I'm talking about, but those who do almost always yell about how much they also loved it. Something about living in an abandoned train car was so appealing to me as a youngster, so I definitely remember feeling like I was vicariously living through all the escapades the 4 Alden siblings got into.
3. The Magic Tree House: I loved these books when I was a kid. I never had a tree house growing up, but maybe that was a good thing cause if it didn't send me on fun adventures, I'd be super disappointed.
4. Goosebumps: I mean, is this really any surprise? If it was creepy, spooky, or weird, you can bet it was for me. We moved around a lot growing up, and I lost all my copies, so I'm trying to get my hands on all of them again.
5. Choose Your Own Adventure: My brother and I had boxes of these books. We couldn't get enough of them. You never know stress until you're reading to see if your choice is leading you to your death, and so I'll admit I more often than not peeked ahead because I couldn't handle the pressure. These books also led me to believe that quicksand would be way more prominent in my daily life than it actually is.
The Berenstain Bears: I literally carried my Mama Bear stuffed animal around with me everywhere I went.
What're some of your picks? Lemme know and check back tomorrow for my BookCon recap!
