I have always loved to read for as long as I remember. I remember learning to read early and sneaking books to read at nap time in kindergarden, I never took a real nap and I’m sure my teachers just loved that. LOL!! I also remember reading books at the lunch table and at recess. I guess you could say I was a book nerd but I didn’t care. I just loved to read!!
I have a couple of favorite book series that I would read over and over…probably because I read so fast and my Mom refused to buy me new books all the time, ha! My favorite book series growing up were the Boxcar Children, The Babysitter’s Club, Sweet Valley Kids, and Nancy Drew!! I also loved to read any books about kids going to summer camp, I always wanted to go to summer camp sooooo bad! LOL!
I also loved the “classics” Anne of Green Gables, Little Women, and The Secret Garden. Anne and Little Women are actually parts of series also that I didn’t read until I was in college. I worked in the children’s library during the summer after my freshman year of college and read a ton of books!!
I also loved the dystopian type series even when I was a kid…
The Giver is actually being made into a movie soon!! I’m pretty excited about it!!
What were your favorite books when you were growing up??
