Top Ten Tuesday | Childhood Favourites

Happy Tuesday, bloggers!

We’re starting the last half of 2019. Can you believe it? I’m trying to get into the swing of things again after I’ve just got back from a long weekend. So when I discovered what the next topic is, I knew I was in for a treat.

Top Ten Tuesday, originally created by The Broke and the Bookish and now hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl, is a weekly meme. The first prompt in July is childhood favourites! We 90 kids get to shine! I am so ready for this post.

I hope you all love my picks!

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

No, you don’t read this book in the dark unless you want a sleepless night. It took me years to appreciate this book. I’m still hesitant to watch the upcoming movie adaptation. šŸ™ˆ


The Royal Diaries: Cleopatra VII

I still own my copy. And I remember flipping through the gold-stained pages, loving every second in Egypt. Since reading this book, I gained a



When Paolini’s debut novel came out, I didn’t hear much about it. But I remember picking it up at a local small bookstore and instantly loved it. I just wish my thrill for the first book lasted for all of the sequels.



I blame Stine for all the late nights. I also blame him for my hesitancy toward masks and dummies (except for Jeff Dunham). But I loved watching the show and reading the series.


The Berenstain Bears

Who hasn’t read or have someone read this series to them? Every single 90s child grew up with the Berenstain Bears. And I still have all my copies packed away somewhere.


Little Critter Collection

The best for last, I say. I remember most of my cherished memories with my nose in Little Critter books. I couldn’t get enough of Mayer’s work. And I loved growing up with all the characters.

  1. OHMYGOSH!! I still own so many of the Berenstain Bears books; wrinkled and ripped corners and all. Also, I own a lot of those Royal Diaries too. At one time, they were a reader obsession. šŸ™‚


  2. Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is the scariest sleepover book of all time!! I remember reading this with a flashlight at sleepovers and being terrified to go to sleep. Also, the pictures inside do not help! The movie is gonna give me so many nightmares!!

    The Critter books on the other hand are ADORABLE!! I know I passive aggressively bought JUST GO TO BED for my son when he was like 2 šŸ™‚


  3. When I was in elementary, we used to read Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark to each other lol. I still remember so many of them.

    And I loved the Berenstain Bears, too! Still not totally convinced it wasn’t Berenstein, though


  4. SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK! ā¤ I am still haunted by the "girl had a spider lay eggs in her cheek" story and it's been over 20 years lmao
    I also lived on Goosebumps books, I had a huge collection of them when I was a kid.
