Today’s Book Chat topic is Children’s Books. I am going to discuss the portion of the prompt that asks “What did you love to read as a kid?”
Like most young girls in the 90s, I was completely obsessed with The Baby-Sitters Club.
This was the first series I was hooked on. I would visit as many libraries as my mom would take me to, to try and find the missing books I had not yet read. I would beg to be allowed to go to the bookstore when my mom would go to the mall and I would stay there the whole time she shopped to read.
I loved how distinct each character was and the descriptions given about their background. I was wrapped up in the connections the characters had to one another and I was eager to read each plot line. The books were filled with adolescent drama and sticky situations that I could not wait to see unfold.
I think Claudia was one of my favorite characters. I looked forward to finding out what crazy outfit she was wearing and what antics she was up to. I also loved Jessi’s character. I admired her ballet dancing abilities and ability to overcome adversity.
If you were a fan of the BCS, you will probably love the blog What Claudia Wore as much as I do.
Were you a BCS fan? Was there a favorite series you had growing up?
Oh, I completely forgot about the baby-sitter’s club! They were some of my favorite books when I was little, and I think I read them all.
Isn’t it funny how we forget these things? I am remembering all kinds of books that I had forgotten by reading other book chat posts.
i loved the BSC!
I never read BSC. Hmmmm…how did that happen?
It’s never too late 🙂
I had been given the books from my older friend. Do you remember the movie and TV show?
Yes! I was so excited about them and rented all the ones I was able to find at the library.
I have to admit that I’ve never read any of the Babysitter’s Club books! But I do remember a lot of my friends growing up loving the books. 🙂 Thanks for linking up with us!
BSC was a long-time favorite of mine, and I love selling it regularly at work now that it’s back in print. What a great series.
