What Are Your Picks?


  1. Great list! :) I also adore Judy Blume, Lemony Snicket, Roald Dahl, and Laura Ingalls Wilder! I have so many memories of reading as a child; these books take me back in time! Happy reading! :)

    1. Thanks! And yes SO many memories from these books! Thanks for commenting :)

  2. Yay for Roald Dahl and Dr. Seuss!!!! I found out there will be a Dr. Seuss museum in MA next year. super excited about that.

    1. Oooo that museum sounds amazing, I'll have to look into that when I go on vacation!

  3. I adored Judy Blume, Laura Wilder and Beverly Cleary too. Must revisit them! Ahh, to many books, to little time. Happy Reading!

    1. I know! I never have all the time I want to read ALL the books :) thanks for stopping by

  4. Wow! You have read more Roald Dahl books than I! I really loved his books when I was younger

    1. Haha yes when I was younger I would check his books out at LEAST two at a time from the library! They were great! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I loved The Clique series so so much! I kind of loved to hate all those girls haha. A Series of Unfortunate Events was one of my favorite series but only 7 books got translated to Hungarian so I wasn't able to read the rest as a child and now I'm not that interested. The same goes for Molly Moon, only the first book was translated but I adored it so much, if I remember right it has a closed ending so I never even knew it has sequels until I joined Goodreads a few years ago.
    Awesome list. :)

    1. Aww that's terrible that all of those didn't get translated! And yes me too, as a kid I sometimes would just pick the books up as I saw them so I didn't get to finish every series either. I actually remember reading Molly Moon out of order haha, but I don't think it mattered! Thanks for commenting :)

  6. YES to A Series of Unfortunate Events and the Roald Dahl books - those were on my list too! I loved the Molly Moon books too! :)

    1. YAYY! Glad you enjoyed them too, they were great books! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Reading!

  7. Aw, great list! I did read the occasional Beverly Cleary book (definitely Ramona!) and a few Judy Blume too. And I always wanted to give Little House a try but never really got around to it!

    1. Thanks! I loved Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume, they were some of my absolute favorites. And the Little House books were fast reads for me as a child, I flew through most of them! Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!
