Top Ten Tuesday was created by The Broke and the Bookish in June of 2010 and was moved to That Artsy Reader Girl in January 2018. It was born of a love of lists, a love of books, and a desire to bring bookish friends together. Top Ten Tuesday has been one of my favorite memes ever since I started blogging, so huge thanks to Jana for taking over the hosting duties!
This week’s TTT topic is actually Books I Wish I Had Read As a Child. I tweaked it a bit because I honestly couldn’t think of many titles that I wish I had read as a child but didn’t get around to. What I decided to share today instead are book series I wish had been around when I was growing up. I know I’m totally dating myself with this list, but none of these gems had been written yet when I was a child. The oldest on my list is the Magic Tree House series and I was already in college when that was first published. Now that’s not to say I didn’t have many fabulous series to choose from when I was younger – The Chronicles of Narnia, Lord of the Rings, etc., but man, so many great series have come out since I started adulting. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to read them with my son, but I really wish I had had the opportunity to read them for the first time when I was his age.
