Books My Age

Today’s post is a simple list post in honor of #AYearathon kicking off. This month’s theme is “translations,” but I read somewhere that one could also choose “books published the year you were born.”

So here we are folks, some books born in 1989:

  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
  • Guards! Guards!
  • Number the Stars
  • Chicka Chicka Boom Boom
  • We’re Going on a Bear Hunt
  • Like Water for Chocolate
  • The Hobbit (graphic novel)
  • Batman Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth
  • Wayside School is Falling Down
  • The Mummy
  • Inside the Human Body (magic school bus)
  • Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed
  • The Calvin and Hobbes Lazy Sunday Book
  • Mouse Paint
  • Dragon’s Milk
  • House of Cards
  • Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey

So. Have you ever looked up books your age? If not, try it now! Share with me your favorite find in the comments!

  1. Nothing on my TBR has been published in my birth year ( I have one book from 1989 and one from 1991, though!)
    So I looked up and found that Bourne Ultimatum and the sequel to Howls Moving Castle, Castle in the Air, was published in 1990

  2. This is such a great idea for a reading challenge! 🙂 I’ve never looked up books published in the year I was born but I should have because 1992 has one of my favourite books – The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Also published were Small Gods (Discworld #13) by Terry Pratchett, The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje, Fever Pitch by Nick Hornby, The Children of Men by P.D. James, and Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson – can’t say I’ve read any of these but it’s nice to have the option if I wanted to read something as old as I am! 😛


  3. I looked up mine for #ayearathon too and it seems I have a bunch of middle series books. Maybe that’s why I always seem to be acquiring book two or three in a series before I’ve found the first.


  4. I recently found out that one of my favorite books of all time — The Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice — was published the year I was born! Along with Matilda by Roald Dahl, The Satanic Verses by Salman Rushdie, and A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking. Sooo…not bad, I’d say. 🙂
