Books that really should be known and read by a lot more people (YA & Juvenile Fiction)

This is a list for all those books that are just sooo good, but when you mention them to your friend they have no idea what you're talking about. I don't know about you, but I read these books a lot. Most people have read at least one or two. So help all these really awesome books and authors get recognized, because they don't get the credit they deserve. This is only young adult books, although juvenile fiction counts too.

no nono The Book Thief deserved to be number one. I hope it will stay on top.


message 2: by [deleted user] (new)

FYI--A lot is two words. I'll bet your finger probably just slipped off the space bar while typing your title ;)


Devan, Sarcasm Expert I feel that some most of the books on this list are popular.

Ughh ALL of them are really popular, thats why when i saw the hunger games series here, i was like " WTF."


message 5: by Derya (last edited Dec 30, 2010 01:41AM) (new)

Derya Pride and Prejudice is not a YA novel, thus you need to edit your list.


message 6: by Jc11king (new)

Jc11king Hunger Games, New Moon, Pride and Prejudice, The Kite Runner, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Giver, Angels and Demons, Les Misérables, The Count of Monte Cristo and a few others should NOT be on this list.


message 7: by Derya (last edited Jan 08, 2011 10:25AM) (new)

Derya So, 11 people thought Pride and Prejudice is a YA novel! =)

I've just edited the title of the list, in order to get the voters into the designated path, while adding books or voting.


message 8: by Melissa (new)

Melissa *face palm* Alot of these are incredibly popular, I think you should rename the list.. ANY BOOK IN in the twilight series just cannot be on this list, either can hunger games...ok pride and prejudice is a classic, to kill a mockingbird.


message 9: by Beryl (new)

Beryl S.K. Almost every book on this list is well known and has been read by a lot of peeps -_-


message 10: by Pragya (new)

Pragya WOW! I have seen most of these books.
people already know about them!!!


message 11: by Breanne (new)

Breanne Tiger saga all the way :)


message 12: by Charlotte (new)

Charlotte  Black I've added Elemental The First by Alexandra May. It definitely deserves to be up there with the bug guns. My favourite book so far this year

I doubt it was a typing error since it's a common mistake (too common) and it was in there twice. The wrong your was also used. I corrected the grammatical errors and the poor spelling. The summary really should be re-written to be more effective and for better flow but I don't think it's my place to do that.


message 14: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca dunagan i agree with most of you, most of these books have been read by TONS of people, like hiunger games, harry potter, and several other, they even have movies. pick ones that at least DONT have a movie, live Vampire Acadamy! do some seriose rewritng!!!


message 15: by Herman (new)

Herman Gigglethorpe Guns, Germs, and Steel is ADULT NONFICTION!


message 16: by H (new)
