Who Am I?

Hello! I’m Amy A. Cowan, a writer and a weirdo who used to read The Baby-Sitters Club, Goosebumps, and Fear Street as a child. The books really shaped who I am as a person and as I’m getting older, I’m becoming nostalgic for a time when I was simpler. However, I’ve been doing this series for a few years now, never on a set schedule. I’m using Substack to keep me on track.

This is also a podcast series if you’re interested. Just search for Rereading My Childhood on any podcast app. It should be there. If you want to see which books I’ve already done an essay on, just go to RereadingMyChildhood.com.

For more information about me, go to my website at AmyACowan.com.

Why subscribe?

The essays go up the same day as the podcast, three weeks before I put them on Medium, five weeks before I put them up on Wattpad, and seven weeks before they’re on WordPress.

Yes, I know I have a lot of blogs, but I get a lot of traffic from WordPress and Wattpad. In the end, the best place to follow my essay series Rereading My Childhood is Substack or subscribing on your favorite podcast app.

Books are long

It’s great if you want to know what happened in Fear Street, Goosebumps, and The Baby-Sitters Club but you don't have the time to read the whole book. That’s what I’m here to do: write you a humorous summary. And I think I review the books with a dedication to the genre and undying love for the series.

Stay up-to-date

It’s all right there and you don’t have to worry about missing anything.
