Book Series I Have Read Growing Up

It has always been a form of escape for me—reading books. I read different genres of books from comedy to fantasy. I remember just reading every day because I don’t have anything to do. If I do have assignments I always do them right away to spend the rest of the day reading. Books have been an essential part of my life as an individual. This article features some book series that I have read growing up.

Percy Jackson & the Olympians by Rick Riordan

The first book series in the Camp Half-Blood Chronicles is the pentalogy of fantasy books titled Percy Jackson & the Olympians by American author Rick Riordan. The main impetus behind Riordan’s creation of the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series was his desire to do something unique. Midway through writing The Lightning Thief, he recognized that it was quite different from what he typically writes.

This was the first book series where I indulge myself in thinking that I am one with the characters. In my imagination, I am at Camp Half-Blood at Cabin #8 but that would be impossible. Unfortunately, the Goddess Artemis has no demigod offspring. Of course, I also imagine myself going on a quest with Percy and his friends. It would be fun fighting greek mythical creatures such as minotaurs and giants.

Diary of A Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

Author and cartoonist Jeff Kinney is the creator of the American fiction book series and media phenomenon known as “Diary of a Wimpy Kid.” Greg Heffley, a middle schooler who chronicles his daily life in a diary, is the protagonist. Before showing it to a publisher, Kinney worked on the novel for eight years. As of 2021, 16 novels in the series have been published, and a 17th is scheduled for release in October 2022.

I remember feeling overwhelmed when my mother bought the whole set of the Diary of A Wimpy Kid. It’s refreshing that the book is about a teenage boy who writes in his diary about his daily life or at least moments in his life that is important. I can relate so much because back then I too wrote every memory that I want to keep in my mind.

Nancy Drew Mystery Stories by Carolyn Keene

The long-running “primary” Nancy Drew series is called The Nancy Drew Mystery Stories, and it was released under the alias, Carolyn Keene. Between 1930 and 2003, 175 novels and 34 revised short stories were released under this title; the first 56, together with the 34 revised short stories, were published by Grosset & Dunlap; and others were released by Simon & Schuster.

I read this book even before settling for bed. I remember my mom getting angry at me because I always read with little light available. They always remind me that I can have poor eyesight and yeah, unfortunately, I did but those nights will forever be memorable.

Reading books made me gain a lot of friends. It led me to people who has the same interest as mine. I have had people whom I can talk to about a particular book. Fun times, indeed. There has been a very long time in my life when I experience a reading slump—It was a tough time but I always knew I love reading.
