Carol Wallace Anne of Green Gables is number 12 and number 59.


message 2: by Hildy (last edited Sep 14, 2015 09:41PM) (new)

Hildy   No Neal Shusterman? His Unwind Dystology remains one of the best YA series' I have read thus far.


message 3: by Cassandra (new)

Cassandra I've only read 26 (and six to-read). That's only a quarter! I'd better get cracking! (although some of these I wouldn't really agree with...Percy Jackson, for example. I just really really don't like Rick Riordan's writing).


message 4: by Sierra (new)

Sierra I've read 55 (so far). Great list! :)

Unwind is #68


message 6: by Gianna (new)

Gianna Lepore kinda surprised there wasn't any twilight on here but I still found the list covering Most popular books here :)


message 7: by Booklovinglady (new)

Booklovinglady Three out of one hundred. But then again, I'm Dutch and most of these books did not appear in a translation :-)


message 8: by David (last edited Sep 29, 2015 01:04PM) (new)

David all tv shows to me.


message 9: by Chastitee (new)

Chastitee i <3 these books ive read 100 great list of books


message 10: by Ruth (new)

Ruth Finnegan Anyone else like 'We were liars' ? Best if the ( wonderful) YA reads, so much more challenging and deep than all those adult 'literary' things, yes?


message 11: by Salma (new)

Salma Kh. I read 13, currently reading Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows and I have 20 on my 'to read later/want to read' list. I thought I had read more YA than that. Must get to reading


message 12: by Trisha (new)

Trisha I've read 92/100

WOW!


message 14: by Cinthia (new)

Cinthia Amazing list. I have so many of them as want to read and a few as read but there are so many amazing books out there it is so hard to made a decision.


message 15: by Booklovinglady (last edited May 16, 2016 12:18AM) (new)

Booklovinglady I've removed I Am Number Four (#101) as it is not part of the original list of 100 titles.

I've also replaced Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, as the first one is not part of the original list, while the second one is.
