Top Ten Tuesday-Favorite Childhood Reads

     Hello fellow book nerds! 😊 Happy Tuesday! Today the Top Ten Tuesday prompt from The Broke and the Bookish is Throwback Freebie! Back in June I did a "Books I Read in High School" post, and after writing it, I had an idea that I could do a post about my favorite childhood books, and when I checked The Broke and the Bookish's new TTT schedule after they got back from their hiatus, I saw the throwback freebie and thought: Hey, that would be a great post to save just for this! Or maybe it was just an excuse to procrastinate, but whatever. 😜

Misty of Chincoteague (Misty, #1)

      I don't know why, but I was always one of those girls who was obsessed with horses. Or actually not horses themselves, just reading about them or watching movies about them. This is weird because I've only been on a horse only twice in my life and I have never really been that much of an animal person. I just read a lot of horse books. Misty of Chincoteague, Phantom Stallion, Saddle Club, you name it, I'm pretty sure I read it.

Dinosaurs Before Dark (Magic Tree House, #1)

   Magic Tree House

     Everyone I know read these books. I loved them. I think I read most of the original ones, but there's like 50 of them, so I can't be sure. 😂

Junie B. Jones and the  Stupid Smelly Bus (Junie B. Jones, #1)

     My grandma in Florida got me hooked on these books. Every once in a while she would send me a new one. They were always so funny and cute. 😊 I'm pretty sure I've read every single one of them. I even had the Essential Guide to School and the Top-Secret Personal Beeswax fill-in journal.😜

Peter Pan: The Original Story

   Peter Pan

     I can't even tell you how many times I read and reread and reread and reread and reread this book. So much that my copy of the movie adaption's spine broke and I had to keep it together with duct tape. 😂 Every time my class would go to the library I would check out all the different versions they had every single week and read them a million times. The 2003 movie adaptation was always my favorite and always will be. 😍

Little House in the Big Woods (Little House, #1)

   Little House on the Prairie

      I remember my teachers reading these to me so many times and watching the TV show that I can't even remember which ones I actually read myself. 😂 

The Door in the Dragon's Throat (The Cooper Kids Adventures, #1)
   The Cooper Kids Adventure Series

      My fourth grade teacher read the first book to us in class and I was hooked. It took me years to hunt down the rest of the series so I could catch up.

Millie's Unsettled Season (Life Of Faith)

   Millie Keith: A Life of Faith Series

       My Uncle gave me a boxed set of the first four books in this series for Christmas when I was 8. I waited until I was a little older to read them, but once I did, I really liked them. when I found out there was actually 8 books in the series and I was missing the last four, I had to track them down. I still have one book left to read, but the last two books jump ahead to when the main character is 22, so I decided to wait until I was a little older to read them Maybe I'll get around to it one of these days.

The True Meaning of Smekday

   The True Meaning of Smekday

     This was on the reading list for school when I was in 7th grade. Fun Fact: It's the book DreamWorks' Home is based on, so I read it way back before it was cool. Ha ha. At least I can feel accomplished in something. 😜

The Sisters Club

   The Sisters Club

     These books were really cute and fun to read. I think I just liked reading them so I could  pretend I wasn't an only child though. 😳😜

Because of Winn-Dixie

   Because of Winn-Dixie 

     I loved this book. I was seven when I read it, and I think it was the first real average sized novel that I actually read. I remember being so excited for the movie to come out and I made a point to read the book first and I remember fangirling about seeing it come to life on the screen before I even knew what fangirling was. Ah, memories.😍

     Well that's all for this post! I'm sorry it's kinda late at night, I had a loooooong and busy day so I didn't have a lot of time to write. Anyhoo.

     What are your favorite books from when you were younger? What's the first book to movie adaptation you remember being excited for? What things are you excited for this fall? Talk to me! I'm lonely. 😳 I'll bake you some cookies! 😋
