Revisiting Old Favorites - Throwback Thursday Marathon

HELP ME DECIDE AND VOTE NOW!!!
I really came into the book blogging fever late in the game. A couple of years ago, it seemed like every book lover I knew was talking about how they’d have to go home and post a review or update to their blog. I remember being super jealous of them, of their technical prowess and how easily they managed their sites. I’ve never been much of a technologically savvy person (despite the fact that I use computer programs to make digital maps on a daily basis), so the idea of making and controlling my own website was very daunting. However, with the help of some of the right people, I created and made my own book blogging site. There are a few books that I’ve ranted about, but for the most part, almost all of the reviews I posted have been positive to some degree or another. After all, we get more excited to share the books that we loved and truly enjoyed, rather than those that bored us to tears.
That said, I’ve been a reader my whole life and there have been a great many books that I’ve discovered and loved since before Space Between the Spines even became a possibility. For a while now, I’ve wanted to go back and reread some of my old favorites and review them, to share why I thought they were so special and entertaining. The problem, though, is with my massive selection to choose from. That and I don’t know that the books I’d like to review are ones that my audience would really care to hear about, as many aren’t super popular or were geared toward younger audiences.
So, I’m going to put the vote up to you, my followers. Listed below is a poll of the books I’d like to revisit and the top four with the most votes will be the books that I review.
The reviews will be a part of my Throwback Thursday series – a little post I do some Thursday to highlight the books I loved as a child – and will be live every Thursday in July: 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th.
If you’ve wanted to do something similar, I challenge you to try this, too. I’d love to see some of the books you loved in the past or when you were little!
Pick some good ones for me, guys! I can wait to wipe the dust away from the old covers and crack into them!

Which book should I read for the Throwback Thursday Marathon?

  1. I read Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM COUNTLESS TIMES, starting when I was very young. I listened to the audiobook narration ("Recorded Books, Incorporated" yo!) and was sucked into the story every time. Is it wrong that I always wanted Peter and Mrs. Frisby to get together?? Was I reading that situation wrong? Lol!

    This is a great feature! Are you hosting it yourself, as something that people can join in on or is it already established?

    1. Ok, I reread your post and got the picture down. Would you mind terribly if I joined in on the fun? I'd credit your blog, of course!

    2. Yes, I have so many fond memories from Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH! Have you ever seen the animated movie of it by Don Bluth? It's pretty epic as well. Not very true to the storyline, but still cool. (I totally ship Peter and Mrs. Frisby. =P)

      Oh, cool! Of course you're more than welcome to join in! I'd love to read about some of your childhood favs. ^-^

    3. Awesome! And no I HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE! It's probably something I should do! And yes, I'm so stoked that you ship Peter and Mrs. Frisby too. I'm not crazy!

    1. Ooh, you should definitely read Mara Dyer at some point! It's a lot of fun and a big roller coaster ride of emotion. I'll have a lot of fun rereading it if it gets the most votes.
