82 of my favorite chapter books for girls!

This is a chapter book list based on my favorite books as a child! Yes, I was one of those nerdy little kids who grew up to be a nerdy little adult. I read ALL the time when I was a kid and I probably still would now if I had the time. ;) I have read all of the books I have listed here except for the last 15 or so of the Mandie books! I remember one summer when I was around the age of 10, and I read well over 100 books from May to August.

The ages for these books listed range from 6 to 12 years. As you can see from the list below, most of my favorite books were in a series. *Many of these books are written for both boys and girls, but a majority of those listed are for girls.*
