#throwbackthursday: The 90’s: Children’s Books

So, this is my last post in my 90’s series.. How sad. Though, over the past 8 post, I think I’ve covered everything and every topic.
If felt quite nostalgic researching and thinking back to my own childhood and things I hoped I’d forget in time! (shell suits!)

This last post is in regards to books and a magazine series I remember:

  • Goosebumps – Horror fiction novels. More geared towards boys I think.. I don’t remember actually reading any of the books. I remember it being on TV, but again, it wasn’t really a programme I watched.
  • Judy Blume – Her teenage directed books were quite the rage with some of my friends, but again, not really ones I remember reading.
  • The Babysitters Club – Another popular read amongst my friends. Novels about the experiences of a teenage baby-sitters club. Quite surprising it ran from 1986-2000.
  • Roald Dahl – Who doesn’t love Roald Dahl books. The Twits has to be one of my favourites. I loved the film version of The BFG though too!
  • The Animals Of Farthing Wood – I remember watching this series on TV. Then a company brought out one of these weekly magazine collections/subscriptions. I think I convinced my mum to sign up for a few, then I used to just read my friends. It was based on books about animals being forced to leave their habitat due to humans and trying to make it to a nature reserve.
  • Point Horror – These were the favourite books of a friend and I. I couldn’t get enough of them. I remember on our weekly Saturday trip into town to buy Rimmel Heather Shimmer lipstick, we’d always end up in WH Smiths, looking at the books. I’m actually quite tempted to re buy a couple of my faves.. The Lifeguard and My Secret Admirer

Do you remember these or any different ones?
I wasn’t really a bookworm back then, I found it quite boring. But I guess, as they say, it’s more down
to not reading the right book.
