My New Reading List

The power of suggestion is sometimes more than just a suggestion for me. Sometimes, when I see a list of suggested titles, be them movies or books, I become compelled to check every single title off my list. I think it gives me a sense of accomplishment, like I just finished a really big assignment in school. 

This list by Epic Reads of 30 YA Books That Changed Our View of the World is RIGHT up my alley! I guess this is evidenced by the fact that I've already read 7 of these stories and loved them all (For the record, the titles I've already read include: The Book Thief, Elsewhere, The Fault in Our Stars, Speak, Monster, Thirteen Reasons Why, and Everyday.

You can click here for a list of the titles above with links to their summaries and book trailers. 

Are there any books you would add to this list???

Excuse me while I go stalk my public library for copies of these books!


  1. Ha!! I was at Target the other day, and I picked up The Book Thief. I wanted to buy it, but I have made a pact with myself to not buy anymore books until I've read the stack of books I already have. ARGH!!

  2. YOU'VE got TO READ unwound BY neal shusterman.

  3. Now you are making me want to read every book on the list. I'll blame you if I never come up for air.

  4. Before I Fall is amazing! (So is everything that Lauren Oliver writes...) I just finished one of her newest books, "Panic" and I flew through it.
    Another that I'd add is "The Impossible Knife of Memory" by Laurie Halse Anderson. I couldn't put it down!

  5. Thanks for the list! I've only read The Book Thief, which was fabulous. I definitely recommend that one. I'll have to get reading...for fun...not just for school! ;)

  6. The Fault in our Stars is awesome. I would add Wonder to this list. Everyone should read that.
