Top Ten Tuesday Childhood Redux

I haven't done a top ten tuesday on this site in a long time... and I even did 5 of them on the main page! For those of you who dont know, I am the Julia @ the Broke and the Bookish....


1. Choose Your Own Adventure Books

These were all things awesome and win... though i usually died by the 11th page turn...

2. The Beatrice Potter Books
Oh Peter Rabbit... I will never not love you.

3. Green Eggs and Ham
I am pretty sure I could still run through one of those rhymes.

4. The Roswell High Series
More of a preteen thing for me, but it was my first foray into sci-fi lit. Teen sci-fi.. and I read it because of the WB show.. but whatever :)

5. The Phantom Tollbooth
I loved this book. So, so much.

I think that is all in addition to my original list...(truncated below)

1. The Island of the Blue Dolphins - Scott O'Dell
2. Where the Sidewalk Ends - Shel Silverstein
3. Wayside School Gets a Little Stranger - Louis Sachar
4. The Outsiders - S.E. Hinton,
5. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - C.S. Lewis
6. Tuck Everlasting - Natalie Babbitt
7. Titanic: The Long Night - Diane Hoh
8. Little Women - Louisa May Alcott
9. Aesop's Fables - Aesop
10. This book about milk and where it comes from.


  1. I never read Beatrix Potter, mostly because I didn't grow up English. I think it is adorable though!

  2. I'm a librarian, so I always have parents asking me about the Choose Your Own Adventure books. There have been several attempts to make this series again, but nothing has worked as well as it did in the day.

    Here's my Top Ten!

  3. I apparently have a horrible memory! Your list is awesome!

  4. I LOVED the Choose Your Own Adventures books. I saved mine and my kids read them now...

    My Top Ten

  5. Choose Your Own Adventures were GREAT! I also loved The Outsiders (if you read that, then you have to read 'That Was Then, This Is Now'! Thanks for stopping by my site.

  6. Choose Your Own Adventures were something I got into when I was a little older, but not for very long. I was always more into the fantasy genre, even as a kid.

  7. I too always died a gruesome death in the Choose Your Own Adventure books. I'm not sure there even were any happy endings possible, just a choice between falling off a cliff or being tied to a chair and drowning in a room slowly filling with water and snakes.
