So, earlier this week I saw this post over on Chantele Sedgewick’s blog with a list of 100 YA books that she’d marked up showing which she’d actually read.  I thought it would be fun, since my muse is deciding it wants me to be a YA writer, to indicate which I’ve read.  So, here goes.

Okay, after putting together my list, I debated whether I’d actually post it.  It’s rather embarrassing when you look at this list and there are so few marked as ones I’ve read.  In fairness, there are some on this list that I picked up and started reading but couldn’t get into so I set them aside and/or gave them to my sister-in-law or to DI.

But if you look at my Goodreads shelf you’ll see a ton of YA books.  They’re just not on this list.

What’s your favorite from this list?  Your favorite not on this list?  What ones should I absolutely try to get my hands on?
