Book Blogger Hop: February 7th - 13th

Joining in on this! Let's hope I can remember to catch each prompt, or at least half of them. Hosted here.

What are some of the most memorable books you read as a child? What made them memorable?

Okay, I know Flowers in the Attic is a weird one for a childhood book - but my older sister was reading these when I was a kid, I was fascinated, and ended up reading them and starting on my journey to adult books in elementary school. I remember Flowers in the Attic as the adult book that started it all. I then moved on to Stephen King's The Shining, which I read in fifth grade. Memories!

Pippi Longstocking was a fun book that I remember fondly and kept re-reading. I never watched it on the TV, though.

The Monster at the end of the Book was my favorite when I was a youngster. I still adore it.

I could have listed many more, of course, couldn't we all? There were the Fear Street books by R.L. Stine I devoured, The Babysitter's Club, but I've already gone over my limit. A few times. If I have to do a #1 top for this answer, it would have to be The Monster at the End of the book just because it was really the first love. It didn't stay the strongest re-read, but it sure opened the doors.
