I am just tickled that they have made a movie out of one of my favorite books growing up, "Ramona & Beezus". I just loved to read growing up and I remember many summers with a Beverly Cleary book in my hand. It got me thinking of some of my other favorite young adult reads. Growing up in the 90's we may not have had hogwarts or vampires, but we did have some fun reads.
Just a few of my favorites...I'd love to hear yours too.
The Babysitter's Club- was it just me or did anyone else dream of having their own babysitters club? I loved these books, so fun!
Roald Dahl- I had a teacher who was a huge Dahl fan, so by the end of the school year I think I had read them all...Jams and the Giant Peach, Matilda, got to love them.
Judy Blume- one word Fudge. Hands down my favorite series of hers.
The Sierra Jensen Series- loved this Christian series. I had a friend who loved this series too so we'd swap them around.
Little House- classic. I can't have a list without adding Little House to it.
I should add, in case your wondering, Sweet Valley High didn't make my list because...wait for it...I never read it. Can you believe it? Don't know how, just never picked one up.
