Top Ten Tuesday - 51

Top Ten Tuesday was started by The Broke and the Bookish for bloggers who like to make lists about books.

Top Ten "Older" Books I Don't Want People to Forget About

1. Nancy Drew Series
I absolutely loved these books when I was younger. I'm convinced that I am Nancy. It doesn't help that I love to play the computer games, which are awesome, by the way. I hope girls never stop reading these!!

2. Goosebumps Series
Goosebumps books (along with the show) used to scare the pants off of me. I think it's a great way to introduce children to the genre of horror and I think it's why I love scary movies so much.

3. The Giver by Lois Lowry
If you ask me what my favorite book is, I'll probably tell you The Giver. It's kind of a lie because I honestly don't have a favorite, but it's the closest thing to one.

4. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
This is one of my favorite classics and even though it's a little long, I hope people don't stop reading it!

5. 1984 by George Orwell
Dystopias are so popular but this is arguably the "original" so don't forget about it! Plus, it's a great read.

6. The Baby-Sitter's Club Series
I can't imagine kids not reading these and I'm pretty sure it's required preparation for anyone who wants to be a baby-sitter in the future.

7. Dear America Series
I think this jumpstarted my love of historical fiction. They're easy to read but provide so much information about life in different time periods.

8. Harry Potter Series
Doesn't need an explanation :)

9. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
I think every 9th grader has to read this but for those who haven't, you really should!

10. Anything Shakespeare
He's pretty much a literary genius.
