I just did a Books I’m Reading post, but thought I’d do a little throwback and talk about books I loved as a kid. This took me back to memory lane a bit, but here are a few. Tell me your favorite books when you were younger.
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark by Alvin Schwartz
Gosh. These books scared the hell out of me. I remember my older brother reading them and I’d get nightmares. I’d read these again if I could get my hand on a copy. One short story I remember in particular was Bloody Fingers and from then on, I was terrified of the closet.
The Beatrix Potter Collection: Tale of Peter Rabbit
I checked Amazon but it appears the DVD’s are only available. I’m sure the book series is out there somewhere. I hope so, because I read these constantly as a child. The illustrations were also well done.
The Goosebumps series by R.L. Stine
I think every kid in my age group was crazy about this book series. The TV show wasn’t too bad back then either. Then again it was the 90’s.
I’m probably missing a few, but these are the ones that stood out to me.
