Top Ten Tuesday: Childhood Favorites

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list  that one of our bloggers here at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.
 Top Ten Tuesday Freebie! Pick whatever topic you'd like! 

Since this week is choose your own topic, I decided to one of the past topics: Childhood Favorites.

1. Watership Down by Richard Adams.  Bunnies!
2. Riftwar Saga - Raymond Feist.  I went through a big fantasy phase as a teenager and this was one of my favorites for some reason.  They were fairly cheesy.
3. Heavenly Horse from the Outermost West by Mary Stanton.  I read this book so many times!  I still have a copy, but I'm afraid to read it again.  I'd hate to ruin my fond memories of it.  
4. Babysitter's Club by Ann M. Martin.  Who didn't like BSC?
5. Beauty by Bill Wallace.  This was the first book I remember sobbing crying over.
6. The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.  I always found this book a little sad but love it.
7. The Jolly Postman or Other People's Letters by Janet and Allan Alsberg.  This book was so fun and so unique!  I loved taking the letters out of the envelopes and reading it over and over.
8. Anything by R.L. Stine or Christopher Pike.  I loved being creeped out by them!
9. The Serendipity Books by Stephan Cosgrove.  I thought the illustrations were gorgeous.  I still have quite a collection.
10. Bunnicula by Deborah and James Howe.  Again, bunny!


  1. I did a similar topic! And Bunnicula definitely made it on my list. I love that book. When I was a kid I read RL Stine Fear Street books all the time. I loved them.

  2. I love Christopher Pike. Brings back such memories
