Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!

Each week we will post a new Top Ten list that one of our bloggers at The Broke and the Bookish will answer. Everyone is welcome to join. All we ask is that you link back to The Broke and the Bookish on your own Top Ten Tuesday post AND add your name to the Linky widget so that everyone can check out other bloggers lists! If you don't have a blog, just post your answers as a comment. Have fun with it! It's a fun way to get to know your fellow bloggers.

  1. Some excellent old covers there Deb. I'd like to revisit Trixie Belden one day- I can't imagine she would hold up, but you never know...

  2. I am not sure that many of these would hold up to a reread, except for, perhaps, Wrinkle in Time and Clancy.

  3. I feel bad that I missed out on Trixie Belden, but I guess it's never too late to give her a try!

    I still occasionally revisit childhood favorites- usually during Readathon I'll re-read a Bunnicula book. ;)

    1. I'd like to reread Trixie and see if the magic is still there. I'm a little doubtful.

  4. I am surprised I've only read a few of these. I read the Dick and Jane stories and I loved A Wrinkle in Time and I liked Henry Huggins (but not as much as the Ramona books). I never did read Trixie Belden though I loved Nancy Drew.

    1. Funny, but I always loved Henry more than Ramona. I recognize that I am in the minority here.

  5. I don't know a lot of these books, but they all seem like a lot of fun.

  6. Homer Price made my list too! I think of it every Christmas season when we make our annual trip to Krispy Kreme to watch the doughnut machine. :D I don't know if it would hold up to a re-read strictly for myself, but I'd love to read it to my kids.

  7. I loved your list!! Loved it! So many familiar books. Trixie Belden and Honey - girls after my own heart. I still remember almost getting sick on Reese's Peanut Butter Cups because I was absorbed in reading Trixie Belden and the Mystery on the Mississippi. Still don't like Reese's and also still have the Trixie book. Did you ever read the Robin Kane books? I loved those. There were only about 4 or 5 of them. And...The Mystery of the Haunted Pool - such a favorite. I have a copy of that one too, as well as a bunch of other YA mysteries by Phyllis Whitney. And I hadn't thought about Miss Pickerell in years.

    I went to my teen years for my list. And loved remembering!!

  9. Although I'm not familiar with a few on the list, I'm really loving the old school covers. When I did my list, it made me realize that all the covers on the books that I read have been updated/modernized.

  11. I included Wrinkle In Time too, but you have a bunch on here that are new to me! The Fairy books look beautiful.

  12. Some of these I am not familiar with but I loved all of the books by Cleary.

  13. WOW! Such a cool list!! I'm familiar with these, I just forgot about most of them. A Wrinkle in Time is on my list, too.

  16. Nice list of books!! I can't believe that I never read A Wrinkle In Time as a kid. I am planning to read it this year as part of the 2015 Banned Book Reading Challenge.

    Here's a link to my TTT post for this week: http://captivatedreader.blogspot.com/2015/03/top-10-books-from-my-childhood-or-teen.html

    Happy reading!!

  18. I'm so glad to see Trixie Belden on someone's list! She was my absolute FAVE as a kid!

  19. This is some selection you've got here, Deb, most of which I've never read. After recently reading CHARLOTTE'S WEB, I saw how much more I got out of it as an adult. Great book!

  20. I remember a Scholastic ghost story book. There was one about someone whose face was smooth as an egg.

  21. The Mystery of the Emerald was always my favorite Trixie Belden--I've read all three you posted. And I had an Edward Eager book on my list too!
