I used to really get into R.L. Stine's Fear Street books, and I still probably can today. I also liked the Junie B. Jones' series.

Oof, the memories seeing that Stine book...
I did like the series, but I started reading them when I was like 9 or 10, and the language was pretty juvenile and I was able to get through like 5 of those books a day easily. So I wouldn't consider it among my favourites. Just a bit reminiscent, that's all.

I really loved the Skulduggery Pleasant series. I only read up to Mortal Coil, though, because books were released too far apart from each other and I was losing interest. Maybe I'll pick it back up just so I can finish the series and see what happens.

I was, and still am, a big fan of the 'His Dark Materials' trilogy by Phillip Pullman. They were a big part of my teenage years.

Broken Sky by Chris Wooding.

This series is what got me into reading, teaching me that anime/manga in novel form exists!

Maniac Magee. It was one of those books assigned to us in fourth grade (I think it was 4th), and at the time I loved everything I read. I found a copy at a garage sale a few years back and picked it up so I could read through it again.

I'm old so y'all prolly won't recognize any of these!

A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door (Madeleine L'Engle). After seeing the movie I definitely feel like I need to revisit these!

The "Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle" books (Betty MacDonald), about an eccentric old lady who "cures" childrens' negative behaviors using very imaginative methods.

I also liked reading just about anything about animals. Some favorites were Lad: A Dog and Grey Dawn by Albert Payson Terhune; Pagoo by Holling Clancy Holling (about the life cycle of a hermit crab, of all things but I loved that damn book); Big Red and Outlaw Red by, um, some guy who wrote books about Irish setters; and the Born Free books, which were not children's books but were the real-life story of a couple who were preserve rangers in post-colonial Kenya, who raise an orphaned lion cub and then work to return her to the wild.
