I love these old style Nancy Drew covers! They're all more cartoon-y now. These are much spookier.ReplyDelete
I remember receiving so many Nancy Drew books for birthdays and other special occasions when I was a kid but never actually reading them because I was WAY too scared. Unbelievable me 🤦🏻♀️ Great TTT, Greg!ReplyDelete
My TTT post
Love all of the covers you picked! The cover for World of the Gods also fits perfectly with the Halloween theme, and that tagline is fantastic!ReplyDelete
I loved Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys stories when I was a kid. My local library had a whole section of this sort of stuff. Good list.ReplyDelete
Great list! Those covers are so much fun - I never read any Nancy Drew but those covers are still so nostalgic.ReplyDelete
I love these classic covers - especially how Nancy Drew always looks so put together while solving a mystery!ReplyDelete
What a great idea! And I think The Message in the Hollow Oak is my favorite one here. Have you watched the new series yet? I've heard it's very Riverdale-ish.ReplyDelete
I love this idea! And Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys have some of the best retro covers out there.ReplyDelete
Those covers are such a throwback to my childhood! I think my mom had every Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books in existence. :)ReplyDelete
Here is our Top Ten Tuesday. Thank you!
I like your take on the freebie this week. I've never read the Hardy Boys, and I only read one Nancy Drew, but I liked it.ReplyDelete
You know I love Nancy Drew! The covers for those and the Hardy Boys books are so great! I wish today's book covers were more like that.ReplyDelete
I love this take on the theme! I've never read any of those books but I loved the covers.ReplyDelete
I think I liked Hardy boys more than Kitty as a kidReplyDelete
I read The Hardy Boys when I was a kid.ReplyDelete
Great choice for this week. They are pretty creepy.ReplyDelete
I'd never pictured Nancy Drew and The Hardy Boys covers as being very halloween-y but not gonna lie, a couple of those are giving some creepy vibes. Who knew? I love these old school looking covers as well, they totally make me think of the old copies of these books I'd find at my nan's that were usually my dad's old books.ReplyDelete
I read so much Nancy Drew when I was a kid, then required reading for school ruined reading for me and I barely read for leisure until after I graduated high school.ReplyDelete
My TTT: Marie @ Pages to Explore
I was introduced to Nancy Drew in grade school (way back in the 70s), and it was insta-love. I really like that you used the classic covers. I could never embrace the updated ones.ReplyDelete
I was Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys obsessed when I was a kid!ReplyDelete
Karen @ For What It's worth
I loved old school Nancy Drew! Thanks for bringing them back.ReplyDelete
Here's my list:
These are great! I love the old school covers. The one with the boat gives off James Bond vibes to me for some reason. Happy Halloween!ReplyDelete
My older sister had books from these series! I don’t remember what the covers looked like, though. I read a few of her Nancy Drew books when I was a kid. I’d like to try rereading them someday.ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
I love ALL THESE. Thyey are retro vintage goodness of the series that first got me interested in mysteries and thrillers and I could look at them all day! (such a creative TTT, Greg!)ReplyDelete
Love the line: "The robot's claws, the death gas... but there was worse to come"!ReplyDelete
I actually have never read a Nancy Drew book, not sure it was that popular where I live.
LOVE that you went with these books. I was just thinking about Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys the other week--when Nancy Drew's latest adaptation aired on the CW--and was like, dang, its been a while since I read at least one of them. Then, I found a copy of one of the Hardy Boys books at a library sale (I ended up putting it back because it had a question blob of goop or something on the title page and I was like, okay, no?) and it feels like I've just been thinking about them a lot lately? It makes me miss working at an antique shop--we used to get the coolest editions/older books of these two series, plus the Bobbsey Twins. It was always such fun looking through them.ReplyDelete
Cool choices this week! :)ReplyDelete
YIKES! Those claws look pretty lethal Gorgeous Greg! Love the Nancy Drew/Hardy Boys covers you've chosen. Bring back lots of memories. Happy Friyay! Hugs, ROReplyDelete
I absolutely LOVED reading Nancy Drew when I was in elementary school. I really liked the old covers a lot. I don't like the new ones AT ALL.ReplyDelete
These books have such a Vintage feel Greg! They remind me of my "Sylvie " or "Alice" our local Nancy Drew. Same vibe on the cover.ReplyDelete
I love Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys covers. 👍✨ReplyDelete
