It’s all in fun, of course. -Karen

Posted by Wodke Hawkinson on Wednesday, August 29, 2012, In : Guest Posts 

I love to remember the books I enjoyed as a child. You could say that I had unusual tastes. I preferred adventure, excitement, and weirdness to any normal book series like The Babysitter’s Club. With that in mind, I give you my favorite book series as a child. I loved these books and still have them on my bookshelf today. If you have kids that enjoy slightly offbeat stories, then they will love these three book series:

 A Guest Post by Heather Smith



I love a good classic book. I have read all of Jane Austen’s books, of course, and was thoroughly enamored. However, I felt that there was something missing at times. Where was the men’s side of the story? I mean, I know we got to read all about Elizabeth and her feeling and thoughts, but what about Darcy? Was he not a character we were interested in?
