Books I Grew Up With

So, I don't usually pay a ton of attention to trending topics on Twitter, but every once in a while one will catch my eye. Today, it was #BooksIGrewUpWith.

I read a TON as a kid, but these are the series that really jump out at me, that I know I spent a lot of time with. And I realized . . . even when I was younger, I was cultivating my eclectic tastes.

Little House - historical fiction
Chronicles of Narnia - fantasy
Nancy Drew - mystery
Fear Street - horror

The Babysitters Club is the one that is most defying definition for me, but I guess you could consider it a precursor to chick lit.

I just never realized it before. I know that now I read a little of everything . . . but I guess that's always been the case.


  1. AHH Babysitter's Club!!! I read every single one. Yes, I was lame.

    1. I know I read them up to a certain point, probably in the 40- to 50-something range.

  2. I LOVED Little House and Babysitter's Club. I think I read every single one ever written!

    1. I know the BSC series went on long after I stopped reading them. I did read all the Little House books though. I should re-read those sometime, for nostalgia.
