One of my reading goals is to pick up my old faves and relive the nostalgia of my youth. I was made fun of for being a reader when I was the age this book was geared towards, so why not have the fun now that I wasn't allowed as a kid?

A to Z Mysteries was a series I desperately wanted to read, but I often got scared out of because of the bullies at my school threatening me. But now? I'm free!

The Vampire's Vacation is an absolute delight. It made me smile, want to giggle, and I was very curious how a vampire was in this little town! The plot is an absolute delight and I can see why young middle grade readers would enjoy this book. It's fast paced, easy to read, and completely imaginable. I could see something funny like this happening in my little town.

Four out of five stars!

Detective Camp is another great addition to the A to Z Mysteries series by Ron Roy.

I found that this book didn't live up to the previous ones I'd read, but I can easily see middle graders loving it. The mystery is set at camp this time and there's lots of drama and goofy camp stories/songs to go around.

I didn't like the mystery as much. Normally I find there's many ways the story can go and it leaves you guessing, but this one fell a little flat for me. It seemed obvious what was going on from the get go. Either way, it's still a fun ride and middle graders will love it.

Two out of five stars.

I was seeking something easy and nostalgic to read with all the nonsense in the world right now, so why not jump back into some sweet middle grade reads I used to binge as a kid? A to Z Mysteries felt like just the book - it'll be easy, have a nice mystery and remind me of my school years.

I thoroughly loved these books as a kid and I still enjoy them. There are little twists and turns that you don't necessarily expect but are so good. They make you question what's going on the entire time and then give you a very reasonable ending. I really enjoyed The Bald Bandit since there was many ways the story could have gone. It set it up so you could have a good guess about what might happen but not be entirely sure until you got enough information (much like the little detectives we have in the story).

I highly recommend picking this book up if you're looking for a light chapter book for young readers. It's fun! It also has some pictures if you pick up the right edition!

Four out of five stars.
