Top Ten YA Books I Cannot Believe I Have Not Read
1. Little Women by Louisa May Alcott
I actually started the audio of this from Audible, but I was really bored. I think I was probably in the mood for a fantasy adventure, and a coming of age story of girls in the 19th century just wasn't what I wanted. I might try the audio one more time, but then switch to the Kindle version.
2. Lord of the Flies by William Golding
My high school didn't make us read any of the cool books, apparently. I mean, I STILL haven't read Romeo and Juliet either (not that I will, mind you).
3. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli
I just found this book last week, and I don't know how I managed that.
4. The Thief of Always by Clive Barker
This has sat on my shelf since last Mardi Gras. No excuses, except that all the other books have taken priority.
5. Beauty (Folktales #1) by Robin McKinley
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite, and I have no idea why I haven't read Robin McKinley's retelling.
6. Saving Francesca by Melina Marchetta
I LOVED Marchetta's Lumatere Chronicles and enjoyed her On the Jellicoe Road, so I don't know why I've waited so long to pick this one.
7. Star Crossed (Thief Errant #1) by Elizabeth C. Bunce
Magic and a girl spy! Why haven't I read this yet?
8. Daughter of the Forest (Sevenwaters #1) by Juliet Marillier
I actually haven't read anything by Marillier yet, although I did try this one a few years ago. I couldn't get through the extremely slow beginning. I want to try again, because I have heard such amazing things about her work.
9. Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
This looks so cute, and Levine won the Newbery Honor for this so I really need to read it.
10. The Naming (The Books of Pellinor #1) by Alison Croggon
