Catch up time

So recently I realized there's a handful of episodes of new Who I somehow initially missed. In order-
New Earth
Fear Her
Army of Ghosts/Doomsday
Runaway Bride
most of Waters of Mars
End of Time
The Flesh two parter
Closing Time
Doctor Widow Wardrobe
s7 up to The Snowman
Doctor Falls/Twice upon a Time

Well to fix this I currently have a free 7 day trial of HBO Max (it has all of new Who and a lot of other cool stuff). Today I watched the Doomsday two parter. And all i can say is...wow. i can't imagine what it was like when this first aired. But my reaction to that ending was just eeek :(

Feel like I need something comforting, Fic recs pls?

Books!

Well my class in children’s literature/ Writing for Children is almost over ( two more lessons +  final exam) and I’m getting tons and tons of big ideas ( thanks so much [personal profile] shivver  for advice / encouragement!) . Also, I’m discovering how fascinating this kind of literature can be.  Since it’s still not easy to go to a library or bookstore right now, I got plugged into my county’s digital book library. And definitely finding some fun and interesting reads ( while rediscoverOmg a lot of series I read as a kid) . Some examples: 

Whatever After series by Sarah Mylnowski ( fun series with unique takes on fairy tales) 
Animorphs by K.A. Applegate ( these were big when I was growing up but I never read them. Definitely reading next!) 
Magic Tree House by Mary Pope Osborne
Goosebumps by R. L. Stein ( spooky ) 
Dear America / My Story & American Girl books , various authors ( wonderful historical fiction) 

So now I wanna know, what we’re some of your favorite books / authors growing up? Got any recommendations?
