List of 100 YA books


*EDIT: I’m going to only be updating this under my “Challenges” page.  I don’t know if I’ll read them all in 2009 but I hope to cross quite a few off the list.

 

Found this via some twitter searching and link clicking on Liv’s Book Reviews  So i figured I’d fill it out.  Maybe I will take this as my to-read list for the year…

 

Instructions:
Put an “X” next to the books you’ve read
Put a “+” next to the books you LOVE
Put a “#” next to the books you plan on reading
Tally your “X”s at the bottom
Share with your friends!
