I've decided to jump into Road Trip Wednesday, a blog carnival hosted by the lovely ladies of YAHighway. Each week they ask a reading- or writing-related question and everyone who wants to participate answers it on his or her own blog. Fun!
This week's question:
What books were you obsessed with as a kid?
I read a LOT when I was a kid, and I was particularly obsessed with series books like The Baby-sitters Club and Sweet Valley High / Twins.
One such series that I was really in love with was called Pen Pals by Sharon Dennis Wyeth.
There were obviously more hilarious antics than "what will happen when we meet?" because the girls meet the boys pretty early on in the series. But MAN I loved these books when I was a kid. I used to have pen pals myself (although sadly none of mine were hot boarding school boys), so that's what drew me to this series originally. And I'm remembering ALL of these covers, so I obviously stuck with them for awhile. I know these live somewhere in my parents' garage. I need to go dig them up...I'd love to read them again.
And speaking of the covers, it looks like one of the roommates was a totally spunky Asian girl! I don't remember that at all. But YAY!
Did anyone else read Pen Pals? What books did you love as a kid?
*How on Earth do I carry this information around in my head after all these years? I honestly can't remember things my husband JUST told me, but I can remember minor plot points in books I haven't read in...omg, it has to be like TWENTY YEARS since I have read these books. God, I am OLD. So I remember this crap, but not important things like paying my bills or feeding my dog. I seriously fail at being an adult.
