Book Meme Day 28

Book Meme Day 28: First favorite book or series obsession

I don’t know if Nancy Drew counts as a series obsession, because I don’t remember reading, or trying/wanting to read all of them. I reread The Mystery of Lilac Inn several times, though, both because I loved it and because it was one of the ones the library had a copy of. I remember being horrified when the librarian told me Carolyn Keene had never been a real person, but a construct of the Stratemyer Syndicate.  Outraged and betrayed. That made me feel happier about tracking down Cherry Ames novels, because after all, a real person wrote them, and Cherry had a job in addition to solving mysteries.

And then, of course, there was The Babysitters’ Club. Also the Saddle Club, which was like the Babysitters’ Club, only with horses.
