It’s Monday & This Post Is a List #IMWAYR

I think I have too many books to read. No, I know I have too many books to read. And by read, I mean have finished by a deadline because I am in two book clubs and also clearly hate myself.

The Book I’m Most Thankful For (2017)

I’m taking a page from Buzzfeed’s book today and posting about the book I’m most thankful for this year.

I’m going to do a throwback to a book series I read growing up: The Baby-Sitters Club.

The Truth about Stacey

There are many things I loved about The Baby-Sitters Club, but mostly I love that it’s about all the things I still think are important: female friendship, girls getting things done, girls working together to get things done, and series fiction.

I definitely tried to emulate the structure of the BSC books as a baby writer. I was all about diary entries to start a chapter.

I can’t think of how to wrap this up, but I just want to say that these books were extremely important to me in elementary school. I read them voraciously. I would go to the bookstore just to find the next book in the series. They brought me a lot of joy, and I loved the characters very much.

Stacey was obviously my favorite, which is why I picked her first book as the image for this post.
