Happy Friday, it’s time for this week’s Fun Friday Flashback
ABOUT THE TAG
Every Friday I will post a questionnaire, photos, quotes, and/or a poem on a specific “topic” taking us back in time and nominate 3 bloggers, who in turn will post about that SAME topic (with their own unique spin) and nominate 3 bloggers of their own, spreading the“Fun Friday Flashback” and send them traveling through time and space.
It’s all about taking fun trips down memory lane and choosing the best way possible to travel back in time. Today’s travel through time will take you back to memorable books from childhood that will always hold a special place in your heart.
J.K. Rowling is a wonderful and inspiring author who allowed her imagination to come to life and took me on adventures I could only dream of.
Not to mention, connecting with the characters in the book and finding a part of them inside myself, especially Luna Lovegood who owned her voice no matter what others thought of her. She was a loyal friend and always looked for the silver lining in the darkest of times. She had a heart of gold and was truly creative and a wonderfully free spirit. Luna was a true ray of sunshine and a character to which I’ve been able to hold on to and refer back to in times of my own self-doubt.

The Sweet Life: The Serial (Sweet Valley Confidential) Hardcover –was a let down after the experience I’d had growing up the twins…but I refuse to let this one poor book in Pascal’s history with the twins negate my experience growing up with the twins.
It was a series that I grew up with from the earliest phases of my life as a young reader up through young adulthood in high school and college.
I lost my twin sister as a baby in the womb and never truly got to have that special bond with her and always felt like something was missing. Diving into life with the twins throughout their childhood up through early adulthood helped me fill the void that has always been a part of me.
Even now as an adult writing my first novel it includes a pair of identical twins who are separated by a fatal airplane accident. This was the author that had the biggest impact on my life, I literally grew up with her writing.
It was a wonderful journey with the twins throughout college, but I feel Francine Pascal did a disservice to the twins and the series with her return with Sweet Valley Confidential and later books related to the series.
There are many other wonderful books and authors that have had an impact on me growing up. However, I feel these are the two that truly stuck with me.
