Blast from the past | Favorite Childhood Books

fave childhood books

I’ve been reading since I was a child. I can’t remember a time in my life where I didn’t read. As a child, I didn’t like thick books, it scared the hell out of me. I always wanted to read short books so that I would be able to finish a lot of books in a short span of time. Reading short books in a short span of time is kinda a big achievement for me way back then. I listed below some of my favorite books when I was young, and I’m pretty sure most of you heard a title or two from the list below.

1. Geronimo Stilton

I’ve always been fascinated with the famous mouse, Geronimo Stilton. This was the book I always ask my mom to buy for me whenever we are in a bookstore or attending a book fair. There were a lot of books in this series and each adventure in each book is very entertaining for a child. The books has enough colorful pictures that can get a child’s attention and help them imagine with their reading. I haven’t read all of the Geronimo Stilton books since they were a lot and I think until now they are still producing new Geronimo Stilton titles.

As I’ve mentioned in my Sunshine Blogger Award post, there was this time when I wrote a letter to Geronimo Stilton asking to meet him and how I am enjoying his adventures in different books. I asked my mom to mail my letter for him but even until now I haven’t received any response from him. I’m not sure if until now he still has his address posted at the back page of each book because that’s where I got his address.

2. Magic Tree House

I learned about Magic Tree House in our school library. The protagonists were two young children named Jack and Annie, one day they discover a magical tree house filled with books and different books meant different journey. Every time they read a book, they are transported inside the book, they are living in the story and they have different missions to accomplish.

What I love about these books is because I felt like I was part of their team, going to different places and accomplishing different missions. I enjoyed traveling through time to different places around the world with them.

3. Goosebumps

I discovered Goosebumps from my older brothers way back then. Goosebumps is a series of children’s horror fiction novellas by American author R. L. Stine, published by Scholastic Publishing.Image result for what is a goosebumps fright light edition

They have this hardcover of Goosebumps, it was the First Fright Light edition, where there were 3 stories inside and when you open the book there is a reading light attached to it at the top of the book. I tried finding a photo so that you could see it, but this is the only one I see (see photo to the right). The red square thing in the upper part was the reading light.

I still remember a couple of sleepless nights every time I read a Goosebumps book because there are titles that were really scary. Eventually growing up I outgrew them and reading Goosebumps is one the reasons why I like watching horror movies or reading horror books. I admit that there are times whenever I watch or read horror books, sometimes it scares me too but every single time, after being scared, I realize at the end that they are just fictional.

How about you? What are the books that you love reading as a child? 

I’d love to know about it in the comment section below, can’t wait to talk with you guys!

  1. My daughter loved the Goosebumps books. I am in my mid 40s so I read an awful lot of Eid Blyton’s Famous Five books. When I hit my teens I loved Stephen King and Dean Koontz and on the other end of the spectrum I love Little Women and Rebecca.

  2. I got so many kids to read any book with the Goosebumps series when I worked in the library. I think when I was a kid maybe Fudge was a series I read. I don’t remember many series being available, though.

  4. I was a super-huge Goosebumps fan when I was little. I had so many of their books. And my little brother really got into the Magic Treehouse series. Geronimo Stilton is new to me, though I do have one of them on my Kindle that I got via NetGalley . . . so they must still be making them 🙂 Great books!
