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!

When I was a kid I was obsessed with the Goosebumps books. I also liked reading Judy Blume books, Sideways Stories from Wayside School, Sweet Valley, and the Baby-Sitters Club. I can't really remember any others.....
haha we just talked about this at play last nite :D uhmm rilly little i love dr. seuss, of course but like 2nd, 3rd, 4th grade i'd say magic tree house and dear america. i never was very interested in harry potter :/
I'm joining the Harry Potter club on this one... oh, and Matilda always cracked me up.
Enid Blyton's!

I reread Harry Potter until I was in sixth grade, then I broadened my horizons and stopped shopping in the Children's section of the bookstore.

In Seventh Grade I read "Looking for Alaska" (yeah, I know John didn't think it was appropriate for people that age, but I still loved it!!!) and that will remain my favorite book EVER!

I know also love "Paper Towns" and of course John's 2 other books (But "Alaska" and "Towns" are my two favorites).

I moved on to classics ("The Catcher in the Rye", "The Bell Jar", "Death Be Not Proud", etc.) and am currently reading "A Seperate Peace" (I guess I'm still a kid because I'm a teenager, and teenagers aren't adults, and I hate belonging in a category that I will only be in for five or so years, so I'm not sure what to call it!!!).

I remember that for the longest time I was obsessed with the book The Little White Horse. It was a lovely little creation.
The Ramona books. I loved them so much. <3

I feel like maybe this was a weird thing to read as a kid cos it seems more for grown ups, but I'll always remember The Little Prince as being one of my main childhood books. 


My aunt died when I was 8 and a half, and I know it was one of her favourites. After she passed, my Mum and I used to read it together at bedtime. 


...My other favourites were Famous Five  - I wanted to be George so bad!! 

When I was really small my dad read the Famous Five to me. This might be an exclusively British/Ireland thing (and really old there anyway) because Canadian friends had no idea what this is ("What, fat English kids who ate all day and solved mysteries? What?") but I rather loved them at five... After that, at six, Harry Potter took over for ten years. But I also loved Goodnight Mr Tom (who am I kidding? Still do) and Roald Dahl books, particularly Fantastic Mr Fox.

Also: The Secret Garden, A Little Princess, Tom's Midnight Garden, Charlotte's Web, The Sheep Pig, Daggy Dogfoot and other such things.

oh my gosh!!! i am exactally the same!!!! so loved pippi longstockings when i was little! did you ever listen to the books on tape? although i did read more books in third and fourth grade i think it was like babysitters club and stuff like that

Before I could even really read I loved the Serendipity and Raggedy Ann & Andy books.  Then when I could actually read by myself, I loved (in no certain order)


-Dear America and Royal Diaries books

-The Amazing Days of Abby Hayes


-Avalon: Web of Magic and Avalon:The Quest for Magic

-Series of Unfortunate Events

-Song of the Lioness quartet 

-Harry Potter :)

As a kid, I didn't branch out much in my reading. I stuck to authors/series that I knew and loved. I'm pretty sure I read every single Boxcar Children and Magic Tree House book. The Phantom Tollbooth, by Norton Juster was (and still is) one of my favorites. I was a big fan of the Redwall series, by Brian Jacques, The Dark is Rising series, by Susan Cooper and a couple classics: A Little Princess and The Secret Garden. 

Oh and of course, Harry Potter :)
