babysitters club movie

andwhenthefantasydied  asked:

Did you read books like Animorphs when you were a kid? I know once upon a time you reviewed the Babysitter's club movie, so were you a fan of any of tween, pre-teen books? Like the Mystery club, spooksville (which now has its own awfully boring tv show), etc.

I was a big fan of Babysitters Club and Goosebumps - those were an early 90’s joint so I was right in the demo.

I did not read Animorphs - I was at the age where I was reading adult books because I was twelve years old and I was an adult, goddamnit. In the modern parlance, Animorphs is what we call “middle grade” - Young Adult as we know it now didn’t really exist back then, so basically you hopped straight from Fear Street to Stephen King. So I considered Animorphs beneath me when that first came out.

Full disclosure; I’m reading them now and I must be the worst adult in history because this is the most fun I’ve had reading a thing in a long, long time. So for the people wondering “do they hold up?” Yes, yes they do. Only goddamn Marco is just as annoying in the books as he is in the show. Shut up Marco you bitch. (Only at least in the books he doesn’t pepper his speech with forced latinoisms like “hombre” and “muchacho”).

I just got to the Visser One reveal and I was like OH SNAP. I did NOT see that coming.
