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. 🙈
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.

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. 🙂
haha I think I’m still afraid of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark 🙂
I looved the Berenstain Bears books ❤
Oh my gosh, I loved the Little Critter books! I remember having a Little Critter computer game that I would play nonstop.
I adored the Goosebumps books. Excellent list.
One of the Berenstain Bears books made my list this week too.
Berenstain Bears were the best. I loved the Little Critter books too – totally forgot about them! Scary Stories is still a favorite for me. It’s the best.
From your list I’ve only read books from the Goosebumps series but I also really enjoyed reading them and watching the TV show on Nickelodeon, bit of a blast from the past!
Goosebumps! I only remember one book (that I did for my Elementary book report) and it had lizards in it… either way, GREAT memories XD
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 🙂
Just Go to Bed was such a cute read.
I read a lot more horror and scary stories as a child than I do now so Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark sounds right up my street!

OMG The Royal Diaries! I remember those as well. I think Cleopatra was my favorite one. I think if I found those at the library, I’d have to take a break from my current reads and reread some of those. You have an awesome list ❤
I completely forgot about The Royal Diaries! I did an entire project on the Cleopatra one in like third grade? I LOVED that book!
I’d forgotten about the Little Critter books! They were so cute. 🙂
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark is one of my favorites!
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
This makes me want to go back and read all of these! Cleopatra was my favorite Royal Diaries book, too.
Oh wow. I read so many goosebumps books when I was young!! 😂 I had totally forgotten about them!!
SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK! ❤ 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.
