Bookish Things

NPR Books Top 100 Teen Books

Hello people of the internet and welcome back! For those of you who do not know, I posted a list similar to this under my reading challenges (found here). I finally got that up a few days ago and since then have found another list that I would like to attempt. Some of the books listed below may also be on the other list, but I’m not really concerned about this. The list that I found is NPR Book’s list of the Top 100 Teen Books. Just like in the previous list, if I have read one of the books it will be in the color red. If I own it but have not read it, it will be in the color blue. On the off chance that I pick any of these books up and are unable to finish them, I will strike through them.
