Top Ten Books From My Childhood/Teen Years I’d Love To Re-Visit
There are so many books that I read growing up that I loved and would love to re-read. But I’m also sort of scared to re-visit them because I feel like some of them won’t hold up. But at the same time, it would be so fun to re-read them as adult. This was such an easy list, and honestly, I had a hard time stopping at ten, but then we’d end up with a super-long list, so I pretty much went with the first ten I thought of!
- Baby Sitters Club
- Boxcar Children
- Flowers In The Attic
- The Sweet Valley High Books…and all of it’s variations
- the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary
- Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison
- The American Girl books
- Pretty much anything by Lurlene McDaniel
- Sideways Stories From Wayside School

I feel the same way you do about rereading favorite books from childhood. I’m almost scared to do it, because I feel I have a much more critical perspective now, especially for the writing. I loved the Baby-sitter’s Club and Sweet Valley High (and Twins) books so much, but would reading them again as an adult sort of ruin them for me? I don’t know! Great list 🙂
I think I’m a little scared of re-reading them as an adult would ruin good childhood memories of the books, but if only I could manage to turn off the more critical perspective, it would be a lot of fun.
LOVE the American Girl stories!!!!! Felicity was always my favorite! I want to reread them at some point! Happy reading! 🙂
I loved Felicity too! I really want to find them all now.
Yes for wayside school and man VC Andrews stuff was so popular and TWISTED
It seems like Flowers In The Attic is a popular choice today! And I remember Wayside School being so much fun!
