23 Books You Absolutely Couldn’t Put Down When You Were A Kid

Reading was one of life’s little pleasures when we were younger.  We can usually recall all of our favorite stories, even to this day.  That’s why when you see this list, you are going to freak out because you will fondly remember all of those hours that you spent clutching one of these books and hoping that you won’t be told to turn out the lights soon.  I know that I would not be the same today if I had not spent so much of my childhood reading through these amazing books.  Take a look:

1. Nancy Drew.

The mystery books that top them all!  We loved reading about this mystery-solving girl.
