My Childhood Favorites
1. From The Files Of Madison Finn by Laura Dower
Madison Finn was the first series my mom bought me. She bought them for me when my parents broke up. In the series, Madison’s parents are divorced and she’s navigating middle school and dealing with her parents divorce. It meant so much to me at the time. I recently bought the entire series (except the new book) so that I could pass down to my children.
The series was recently revamped with new covers and they’re terrible. I have to give Madison Finn who credit for getting me into the internet. I was quickly into AOL chatrooms and message boards. And to be honest, I still talk to the people I met in the chatrooms to this day. One of them even inspired me to be a blogger so I owe Madison a lot.
2. The Amazing Days Of Abby Hayes by Anne Mazer
The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes was another series that my mom bought me. It is also a book I give credit to for getting me into journaling. Abby had a journal and always wrote in it with a purple pen so I have done the similar things throughout my life. I’ve been working on getting the entire series to introduce to the Littles.
3. Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling
It took me several tries to get into Harry Potter. By the time, I was into it The Prisoner of Azkaban was out. The Prisoner of Azkaban was my absolute favorite book of the series. Sirius Black was always my favorite character.
4. Say Cheese and Die by R.L. Stine
I really loved Say Cheese and Die again. I loved Goosebumps but this one was my favorite book ever.
5. Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles
The Perfect Chemistry books by Simone Elkeles were the first books that I read with Mexican Americans and I was so EXCITED. I had read tons of books by this point but none featured Mexican American characters and I remember being so amazed that these characters were just like me. These books are some I hold very close to my heart.
6. Anything by Sarah Dessen
Sarah Dessen is my queen. My mom bought me all her books one year for Christmas back in the early 2000s. If you don’t know Sarah Dessen has been writing since the 90s and I still find her books age gracefully throughout the years. I’ve read all of them except Once and For All and The Rest Of The Story but I’m planning on reading those in July.
