Five on Friday: Childhood Favorites

Happy Friday everyone!  It’s time for another Five on Friday!  This week’s topic is childhood favorites which works because I’ve been feeling a bit nostalgic lately.  I think it’s because of all these reboots happening of my favorite shows.  It’s just making me miss that time period – the late 90s and early 2000s – when things were much simpler.  Honestly, I think our generation was the last one that had a really good era to grow up in.

Anyway, before I get too into all of that, let’s get on with my favorite books from my childhood!

August 30: Childhood Favorites

1. Harry Potter

Like last week, this is a given.  The first book came out when I was young and I started reading them before or at least by age 10, so I was one of those kids who literally grew up with the series.  I really cannot remember a time in my life where Harry Potter wasn’t a thing.

2. Hardy Boys

A lot of kids grew up reading Hardy Boys or Nancy Drew.  For some reason, I chose the Hardy Boys over Nancy Drew.  I didn’t read all the books, as there are many, but I did read enough to keep myself busy growing up.

3. Fudge series by Judy Blume

Fudge got himself into quite some antics, and while I don’t remember a lot of the books (or really anything from them at all), I do remember that I loved reading these books

4. Dr. Seuss’s How the Grinch Stole Christmas

My all-time favorite Christmas story growing up.  While I don’t remember reading this all before adulthood, I’m sure my mom probably read it to me as a toddler.  And of course, I love all the movie adaptations of this story and watch them literally every year in December.

5. The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

I can still picture sitting in my fourth grade classroom reading this book and loving every aspect of it.  Then of course I believe I enjoyed the movie as well, though it’s been many years since I’ve seen it.  This was definitely one of my favorite books from childhood and now I’m thinking I need to get a copy and reread it sometime soon.

What are some of your favorite books from childhood?
