Today’s Throwback Thursday demonstrates what a good little book nerd I was as a kid. I’m guessing this photo was taken in sixth or seventh grade. It appears to have been taken in a hotel room, so my family was probably on vacation.
I’m posing with Sweet Valley Twins #32: Jessica On Stage, The Fabulous Five #12: Katie’s Dating Tips, and Sweet Valley High #58: Brokenhearted. I had actually totally forgotten about The Fabulous Five series until I saw this photo. I LOVED these and other book series (Babysitters Club! Satin Slippers!) and couldn’t wait to get my hands on the new ones as they were released. Clearly I had a fun time reading while on this vacation, wherever it was. I wish we still had my huge book series collection at my parents’ house, but they are all long gone, donated to charity. I hope some other kids got to enjoy these books as much as I did!
