National Public Radio in America released a poll a few months ago to try and discover the top 100 teen novels (or YA fiction) of all time. The results were published a while ago, but due to the HSC, I’ve only just got around to checking them out.
While I have read eight of the top ten (The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings still grace my to-read list), I was surprised to find I hadn’t read the majority of the list.
So I set myself a challenge.
I am going to locate and read all one hundred books on the list, and review them here.
It will be an interesting journey, as many are novels I wouldn’t normally pick up. But they made the list, and read them I shall.
To kick off the challenge, I went to my local library yesterday and borrowed:
- Fallen, by Lauren Kate (number 67)
- Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld (number 92)
- Gone, by Michael Grant (number 96)
