HAPPY JULY, everyone. Hope the start to this new month is off to a great start; and you’re enjoying much cooler weather than I am. Top Then Tuesday July 2 asks us to take a little trip down nostalgia’s lane.
That Artsy Reader Girl | July 2: Childhood Favorites
I like this topic. A lot, but I really don’t know that I remember my childhood favorites enough to make a coherent list. Plus, I feel like I’ve made this list recently(ish). So, since it’s nearly Independence Day in the U S of A, I decided to do something a tiny bit different. (But sort of go on topic, too.)
Today, I’m really breaking the rules by sharing some books with cover art in the red, white and blue colors. But then, I’m also going to share a few of my childhood favorites… which means a few that I still own. Because, let’s get nostalgic, right!?
Here we go. Let’s get to listing.

A Trip Down Memory Lane: Childhood Favorites
1: American Girl | These were a huge part of my childhood. Needless to say, I still own all the books even those that were under the Pleasant Company branding. Today’s feature is from the Molly book series (era aka the colors) because I’m a bit OCD like that. Amazon [Meet Molly] | Goodreads
2: Berenstain Bears | I don’t remember my at-the-time readings of this, but I have several of these, and really enjoyed them. Confession: Sometimes I still page through my oldie copies (which are quite worn out). Because, yes, I’m an adult. Amazon [‘Messy Room’] | Goodreads
3: Carl’s Afternoon in the Park | I don’t have specific memories about these books, but I know I looked at them quite a lot. Amazon
4: The Poky Little Puppy | I’ve been told this one is a favorite. Amazon
A 7 Novel Party of the Red, White and Blue
2: Fireworks by Katie Catugno | OK, so this one is a tiny bit of a stretch since it doesn’t have “traditional” red and blue on it, but I mean, I had to use it; it’s titled Fireworks! Amazon | Goodreads
5: Geek Girl: Picture Perfect by Holly Smale | This may have a patriotic cover art, but it also fits because its about Harriet (our titular “geek girl”) coming to live in NYC for a short while. Amazon | Goodreads
