Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Young Adult and Childrens's books (or serieses) I loved by Mechele Armstrong

1. The Three Investigators series by Robert Arthur--mysteries and three boys of differing abilities
2. The Black Stallion and Island Stallion serieses by Walter Farley--beautiful horses, need I say more?
3. Lion Houng by Jim Kjelgaard--an abused dog, a boy, and a mountain lion. Actually petty much anything by Jim Kjelgaard, Big Red, Outlaw Red, Irish Red, etc.
4. Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson--Pirates, arggggh. Jim Hawkins and Long John Silver.
5. I will make you disappear by Carol Beach York--spooky book about two girls meddling with witchcraft
6. The secret of Van Rink's Cellar by Beverly Haskell Lee--Historical set in the Revolutionary war time with spies and suspense
7. The House of Thirty cats by Mary Calhoun--An ederly woman with a heart of gold and too many cats, and the girl determined to save them and get rid of the "evil" cat.
8. My mother the witch by Rose Blue--is her mother a witch or a healer?
9. Scruffy by Jack Stonely--a stray dog's adventures
10. Just So stories by Rudyard Kipling--contains many stories and I think some with the Jungle book.
11. The grounding of Group 6 by Julian F. Thompson--definite young adult reading. But I remembered it so vividly I had to buy a used copy. It's a about a group of kids off to summer camp, only they are not supposed to come home.
12. Oh the Places you'll go by Dr. Seuss--"Kid, you'll move mountains." Great inspirational book, too.
13. The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton--Love the Curtis brothers and the adventures with their gang. The movie sports a very young Patrick Swayze and Tom Cruise.

Edited to add three more. How could I forgotten...

14. Madeline L'Engle--The Wrinkle in Time series made me love paranormal forever. Meg is just an awesome girl and the romantic underpinnings...oh my.
15. Judy Blume--From Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing to Deenie to Are you there God it's me, Margaret? she dominated a lot of my reading.
16. Wild Violets by Phyllis Green--another of those books that made such an impression me, I might have to find it someday. Two girls of different social statuses work on a friendship.

I never thought I'd find anyone else who'd read it! How neat is that?
