31 Books You'll Recognize If You Grew Up In The 2000s


As a book fiend with over a dozen books on my “must read” list, there are times where I’m like, “To hell with it!” and re-read a book from my precious youth.

It’s a serious problem I have. One without a cure.

My frequent trips down memory lane often leave me thinking about all the books I read in my youth and how they impacted my formative years.

Boy, did I want to find that magic treehouse.

This all came to a head when recently in the land of Twitter, I came across this moment started by writer @anne_theriault. She asked her followers to describe themselves with the “most on-brand/clearly formative YA books that you were obsessed with as a tween.” Lemme tell ya, these books will have you REMINISCING!
