Top Ten Tuesday-- Books For Your Inner BSC Character

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (August 15th) I'm one of them :)

Today's Topic

Top Ten YA Books For The BSC Character With-In

  • I love 80's-90's nostalgia, so today I decided to rec YA books for all the BSC characters.  Whether you're a Kristy or a Jessi-- there's a book for you:
  • Don't know which Babysitter you are??  Take THIS QUIZ & find out!!

1.  Kristy Thomas
  • Meant to Be by Lauren Morrill- Type "A", bossy, Julia definitely reminded me of Kristy-- the only thing she was missing was the sporty gene.

2.  Claudia Kishi
  • This is Our Story by Ashley Elston- Claudia LOVES a good mystery-- Kate is DEFINITELY channeling Nancy Drew... and there is a fashion element in this book.

3.  Mary Anne Spier
  • Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum- I see a lot of Mary Anne in Jessie.  Loss of their mothers, dealing with remarriage and step-siblings, don't like being center of attention.

4.  Stacey McGill
  • It's Not Me, It's You by Stephanie Strohm- Avery is totally a Stacey.  She's popular, boy-crazy, flirty, has to deal with mean girls, fashionable.

5.  Dawn Schafer
  • Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli- Are you a Dawn??  If so, you'll love Stargirl and her free-spirit, love for the environment, DGAF way of life.

6.  Mallory Pike
  • Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell- I can't imagine an aspiring writer NOT loving Cath and her mega popular Fanfiction.

7.  Jessi Ramsey
  • Tiny Pretty Things by Sona Charaipota & Dhonielle Clayton- Jessi, the ballerina, would love to read about the dark side of the ballet world.

8.  Abby Stevenson
  • Defending Taylor by Miranda Kenneally- Athletic Abby would totally love the Hundred Oaks series-- especially this one about a soccer star.

9.  Logan Bruno
  • Dash & Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn & David Levithan- Logan totally reminds me of Dash.  He goes along with Lily's game and takes an interest in the things she likes.  He's a dick sometimes, but he's also sweet when it counts.

10.  Shannon Kilbourne
  • Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty- Jessica Darling is totally a Shannon.  Overachiever, princess who doesn't think she is, frenemy, should DEFINITELY get a dog named after her.

So-- which BSC character are you??

What books are you recommending this week?


  1. I absolutely love this post. What wonderful recommendations! I loved BSC!

  2. Tell Me three Things looks really fun, love that cover, and Fangirl is pretty awesome. I kind of wanted to read Dash & Lily but never did...

  3. What a fun post! I loved BSC when I was a kid - I'd probably be Mary Anne! Awesome recommendations!

  4. Um this post is amazing!!! I took the quiz and got Claudia and I really want to read This Is Our Story so it was perfect :)

  5. SHUT UP! This idea is brilliant. It was not what we talked about but I love it so much more. The Jessi book is so perfect, so is the Mallory book, and the Dawn. All great! Love it!

  6. OMG I love this post so much! I always have felt like a hybrid of BSC girls and I love so many of the books on this list!

  7. I love this! I took the quiz and got Mallory, and I LOVE Fangirl. :)

  8. Hi! Sooo fun! I am Claudia. Not sure if I agree (I'm wondering which of my answers on the quiz got me there. haha). But online quizzes never lie, so I'll have to check out This is Our Story! :)
    My TTT

  9. I'm definitely Mallory - love your pick!

    Check out my TTT and my current giveaway

  10. Ooo! I just picked up Tell Me Three Things and have It's Not Me, It's You pre-ordered (paperback). Hopefully I'll enjoy both. :) Fun list, Michelle.

  11. This is the best TTT I have ever read. And I have read a LOT of them. You have my HEART with this BSC love. I took a quiz the other day, and before I started it, I was like "this damn quiz is going to tell me I'm Mallory" and... YEP, it did. So now I shall take the quiz you shared and keep my fingers crossed ;) Okay, this one told me I am LOGAN and tbh, I don't know what to do with that information? Because... how?

    Apparently I should be reading Dash & Lily's Book of Dares. (Oh, and I think that in reality, I am what would happen if Kristy and Mallory had a love child, so do with that what you will.)

    Best. Post. Ever.

  12. I totally took the quiz and I'm Dawn, haha. Tiny Pretty Things has been on my TBR forever. I must find time to read it. Thanks for the recs!

  13. I'm totally a Mary Anne and I LOVED Tell Me Three Things so that's pretty spot on ;)

  14. Tiny Pretty Things is one of my favorite books ever! Tell me Three Things sounds really amazing. Great Post :D
