This might already exist, but I didn't feel like sifting through the massive amount of discussions.
When I was a kid, I almost exclusively read Pippi Longstocking books by Astrid Lindgren. I didn't broaden my horizons much for a long time, but I read all the Little House on The Prairie books in 3rd and 4th grade. I mainly read school material until 6th grade, which is sad. But hey! Better late than never!

Before I found Harry Potter, I was a big Junie B Jones fan. I also really like the Baily School Kids. I don't know if anyone else read them, but I liked them a lot. Looking back, they were all pretty much the same ("An adult in our life might be a vampire/mermaid/angel/werewolf! But probably not, because that's stupid. But look! Suspicious antics! Disappearances! Not sayin' they were totally a mythical creature, but it sure looks that way!") but they were still my favorites.

I loved the classics when I was little: The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Heidi, Black Beauty. I love Charlotte's Web and the Anne of Green Gables books. I adored Ramona Quimby and The Boxcar Children. Little House on the Prairie. The Babysitter's Club, Goosebumps.
I liked Little house on the prarie :)
and I loved the Harry potter series, I still do :3
but, other than that, when I was younger, I detested reading. I wasn't until grade 7-ish that I began to warm up to it, and now I am an insane bookworm :D
