I've done this before, but I'm excited to share some of the books I loved when I was younger, the books that got me interested in reading long-term.
I read The Baby-Sitter's Club books, of course, but this series published while I was an avid reader. I loved how Martin created such a perfect small town feel.
How could I not??
P.S. Publication order is the only right order to read the series.
I think I was introduced to the movie first, but I loved the book too.
I loved a lot of the American Girl History Mysteries, but this one was definitely at the top of my list.
The Warrior cats were legendary.
The voice and plot are great. It's also so fun to visit the Met and think about where Claudia and Jamie hid.
Waaayyyy better than the movie.
Probably my favorite of the greater Deep Valley world (but I do love Betsy and Joe, too).
For a little girl who had once dreamed of being a ballerina, these books were a dream.
10. Shiloh by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
My second grade teacher read this book to us, and it was so good.
I read this one in middle school, and it's one of my favorite books I had to read for school.
Oh my gosh, this book was hysterical.
Listen, I love Charlotte's Web, but this book is where it's at.
My mom read these to me, and they are still near and dear to my heart. (Although I have a bigger soft spot for the Caroline books.)
Smol Emma devoured books just as much as Grown Emma does, so she loved long series like The Boxcar Children.
What were your favorite books when you were younger?
