100 YA Books list

I saw this over at The Bookish Type and decided to do it. One thing I'm a little confused about is a few of these are not YA books. But anywho, moving on.

I have read books in bold.

I own books in italics.

I intend to read underlined books in the near future.

That's kinda sad that I've only read 27 of these so far if I counted right. I've never even heard of a lot of them.

  1. I was confused about why some of these were considered YA too -- like To Kill A Mockingbird? What? But it was decided from a poll, so I guess people thought it was YA since the narrator is like 9 years old? (I can't remember Scout's exact age, but she was a youngun.)

    Definitely read Uglies! So amazing!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
