I read just about everything I could get my hands on, but I especially loved fairy tales. Someone brought up the question recently about our favorite books as children, and I was filled with nostalgia.
Dealing with Dragons, and the rest of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles, was a favorite book. I read the whole series again recently, and still love them. My worn out copies are still on the bookcase in my living room. They put Harry Potter to shame!
The BFG. Who doesn't love Roald Dahl??
Fear Street. I don't know anyone who was a tween in the 90s that didn't read these, Goosebumps, Christopher Pike, or some combination of all three. They are iconic!
The Redwall Series. I couldn't place the name of these books at first, but they were the first I thought of. I reremember stealing them from my sister's room and reading them over and over. I found myself on Amazonlooking for them again. To my surprise, there are now over twenty in the series! The first two are on their way to my house, despite my vow to not buy any more books, and I can't wait to read them again. I got the hardcover version this time ... hopefully they won't fall apart like my sister's copies did, from use.
What were your favorite books as a kid?
