Hello friends and fellow book lovers! It’s Tuesday and thankfully, it’s a Top 5 Tuesday even though I’ll be working when this posts. Once again, Shanah did not disappoint and came up with a really fun prompt for this week.
The more I thought about this prompt, the more I thought about books that are important to me. That’s why I knew my list had to focus on both new and old books I love.
If you’re interested in participating in Top 5 Tuesday, all you have do is write up your post and pingback to one of Shanah’s posts. Make sure you pingback to her posts and not just her blog so she can add you to the list.
5. Stalking Jack the Ripper series
Hopefully, if my house was on fire, I could grab this series. I read both Stalking Jack the Ripper and Hunting Prince Dracula so I had to include them. This is easily my favorite series, probably ever and I’d hate to lose them. I’m not even a big historical fiction fan, but these books hooked me.
4. The Baby-Sitters Club books
Is this a surprise? I always talk about the Baby-Sitters Club series and it’s one of my favorite ones ever. I’ve gotten books from all different places including library sales, used bookstores, eBay and regular bookstores. I have a pretty hefty collection and I’d hate to lose them.
If my house was on fire, I’d try to grab as many as I could. They hold such a special place in my heart and I’d hate to lose them!
3. The Smell of Other People’s Houses
This one probably comes as no surprise, either. One of my favorite books of last year was The Smell of Other People’s Houses. I bought this book before I went to Alaska and read it while I was there. Like my previous entry, it holds such a special place in my heart.
It will always remind me of Alaska and I never want to lose those memories.
2. The Little Bear Treasury
I believe my uncle got me this book when I was little. I loved this book so much especially when the TV show aired. The stories were adorable, featured some lessons and had lovely drawings.
It didn’t just feature one story, either. Having all those different stories gave me some variety and looking at it now, it’s still an adorable book. Sadly, it’s falling apart since it’s been loved so much by me 😛
1. The Monster at the End of this Book
The last book on my list is The Monster at the End of this Book. This was easily my favorite book when I was younger. This book is so adorable including setting the reader up for a huge surprise. Kids might believe there’s a monster but it’s only Grover.
It also has colorful illustrations and kept my attention. This is another book that’s falling apart from me loving it. If this was the only book I could grab, I’d be happy. I also bought this for my little cousin so I feel like I’m passing the tradition onto him. 🙂
