Q: What were some of the most memorable books you read as a child? What made them memorable?
A: Starting from a small child I was reading The Little Golden Books. Then it flourished into more mature reading with The Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, The Bobsey Twins... Oh how I loved sleuthing! Then I started stealing my moms Stephen Kings' at a bout 13, and devoured them. My mom didn't know until after I'd read them, and since I didn't have nightmares or anything she was okay with it. Boy, am I glad she let me continue as it kept my love for reading, especially mystery and horror, alive. Thanks, Mom!!

    1. Thank you.
      Not such a boring story, it was more in the manner it was told.

  9. I will prya for your mom. What is her first name? Such a serious disease but advances in medicine have come a long way the past few years. Blessings on you and yours today. My quotes from Ordinary Hazards

  10. I hope you mum makes a speedy recovery. {hugs}
    I can't remember what books I liked during those pre school years but Enid Blyton fantasy was my starter-for-ten ;-) (both being read to me and reading myself) and like you, I did dip my toes into horror but it was during my teen/adolescent years for me.
    I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend, Freda. Here's my BBH Post

  11. I hope your mum's surgery went well!
    I think the book I remember most strongly from when I was a kid was a book called Both Sides of Time by Caroline B. Cooney... It would be in the YA category, I think nowadays. I mark it as the beginning of my romance reading ways!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
