Books of the 90’s

I don’t know about you, but I remember fondly of ordering stacks of books from school through a catalog or being read to in class. This how I discovered great classics such as:




Wind and the Willow (1908)

Tales of the Fourth Grade Nothing (72)

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH (71)

Nate the Great (86)

BFG (82)

The Lion, the Witch, and the Wordrobe (50)

The Whipping Boy (87)

Frog and Toad’s adventures (70)



And so many more I can’t even name including ‘Watership Down’ (72) and ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’(60) in High school and I also remember reading ‘Flowers for Algernon’(59) in middle school which was a short story first than became a novel in 1966. I also was a big fan of ‘Goosebumps’ (92) that series really took off. Would you believe it was originally intended for girl’s but boys and girls both loved them. (R.L. Stine was at wordstock one year and the line was insane) Another series of books that took off I read here and there is ‘Animorphs’ (96) Other than that I have found memories of reading everything Star Wars in high school.  “Power of the 90s” My first Star Wars book I read was ‘The Crystal Star’ (94). Awwww the memories of books of the 90’s. Soon I’ll release my own MG book entitled ‘The Chronicle Gate” and maybe kids today will look back on it as one of those that they loved growing up. I also found a list of top 90 books. Some I remember, some I don’t.

books every 90’s kids will love


I hope you enjoyed the memories. And I’ll see you next time Friends of Fantasy!
