Top Ten Tuesday: Ten Books From Childhood/Teen Years I'd Like To Revisit

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

by Arnold Lobel

This was my favorite book when I was little. I had my parents read it to me every night. It's long out of print but I still have my original copy. The illustrations are gorgeous and really sparked my imagination. 

Arnold Lobel is best known for his Frog and Toad series.

Bunnicula by Deborah & James Howe

Choose You Own Adventure books by various authors

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

by Robert C. O'Brien

The Last Unicorn by Peter S. Beagle

The Baby-sitters Club by Ann M. Martin

Yes, I read these. 

Sweet Valley High by Francine Pascal

Kurt Vonnegut books

When I was in High School, I read all of Kurt Vonnegut's books. I loved them so much, but I don't remember all of them. I really want to re-read them all now as an adult.

It's been a long time since I've read this. I'd love to revisit it.

What books make you reminisce about your youth?

  1. So many lists today have A Wrinkle in Time! Such a great book!! I have the Babysitter's Club on my list too :)

  2. Bunnicula! I am so glad someone else loved him. In fact, I just recently bought a box set of the first 7 books because I never read them all and I wanted to have them for always. I truly believe Bunnicula spawned my love all all things horror and supernatural.

    1. I haven't read them all either, but that sounds like a great way to spend a day! I think Bunnicula started it all for me, too :)

  3. I've seen a few lists with Bunnicula on them, I've never read it but the title is catchy so I might give it a try. I've got Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High on my list also. Really nice TTT list.

  4. I've never read Wrinkle in Time - but I hear lots of good things about it, so I'll have to give it a try

  5. OOh nice! Seeing a lot of these around today! Don't think I've ever read any myself! Great picks though!

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

  6. The Choose Your Own Adventure series is awesome! I enjoyed reading those as a kid too.

    I can't I have read A Wrinkle in Time yet. It's on my list of books to read this year for the 2015 Banned Books Reading Challenge!

    Thanks for stopping by and leaving me a comment on my TTT post this week. :-) Happy reading!!

  7. I loveeeeddd the Baby-Sitters Club books! I also enjoyed the "Choose your own adventure" books - they were so much fun to read! :)

  8. Bunnicula!! I loved that book! And also it scared me... even though I don't think it's even that scary of a book LOL. I also LOVED SVH. Lila was my fave. I had the board game too. And of course BSC. Me and my friends would always fight over who was the "Mallory" of our group :)

  9. Great list! I posted my first top ten tuesday post today and I'd love if you checked it out :)


  10. My daughter was obsessed with Bunnicula. Totally. And Mrs. Frisby and The Last Unicorn. She loved those and the cartoons that were based on them.

  11. I must check out this new-to-me Arnold Lobel book. Thanks for the recommendation!


  12. You have posted a lot of books, most of which I'm not familiar with. My childhood favorites centered a lot around Enid Blyton.

  13. Great list! I remember my sister and I fighting over Sweet Valley High books as we took it in turns to buy them and the other one always took too long! Love Bunnicula and can't believe I forgot about A Wrinkle In Time and NIMH!

  14. I wish I had included A Wrinkle in Time - I would love to re-read that. Looking at everyone's lists has reminded me of so many I wish I hadn't forgotten! Also I've never seen or heard of The Ice Cream Cone Coot but it looks utterly delightful and I want to try and track down a copy!

  15. That bird book looks REALLY cute, I am going to have to try to find that for my kids! And HOW did I forget Choose Your Own Adventure!? I LOVED THOSE. But I cheated more often than not ;) Oops? And I adored the BSC books. SO much. I kind of want to reread them, but I'll refrain ;) Great list!

  16. I have such great memories of Sweet Valley High! I couldn't wait for each new book to come out! I was useless at the Choose your own adventure books-I never survived the fights!

  17. Bunnicula! How did I forget that one?! And The Babysitter's Club! Oh man, My list is now lacking! :) Oh man, I also forgot the Goosebumps books! Damn it!

  18. I feel like I missed out so much by not reading a Wrinkle in Time! The Ice Cream Cone Coot and Other Rare Birds look so interesting. I wish it hadn't gone out of print so I could see it.
