Top 100 YA List

First things first...I'm not even going to try to link to the original post though I have to tell you I stole/stalked/read the idea that, I know wasn't originally from them but still, I found them there and not anywhere else...
Lady Reader's Book Stuff (from wich I'm a new follower)
Fiktshun Ramblings (one you may know is 1/2 of my stalking favorite places)
both of them got me hooked and jaw dropping while going through the list of the TOP 100 YA BOOKS and wich of those the'd read...


So, I decided...why not...I might even surprise myself...you know, I'm new to reading YA in english since I read mostly in spanish AND not YA. And thanks to Twilight, Hush, Hush, and The Body Finder, wich where the only ones capable enough to get me into reading all over again after 2 years of abscence, I am here now posting this ;)
Anyways, here's the list and the ones that I HAVE READ are going to be in GREEN LETTERS. That settled here it goes! And wish me luck ;)

  1. You have read a lot! You put me to shame and I've been reading YA for a few years.

    At least you've been reading Richelle Mead's Vampire Academy. :D

    Oh, and I have to say, I'm sure you noticed one writer who should have been on this list... You know who I'm talking about. Notable absence. Yeah.

  5. Isn't funny that a bunch of us can go through a large list like this and all of us read completely different books?! I think it's just that time gets in the way! I would have way more of them read if I just had more time. (and money!)

    ALBA - Seriously, you've gotta read Kristin Cashore's books & Maria V. Snyder's Study Series. Both are fabulous series!

    I'll make a deal with you. You choose one for me to read and I'll pick one for you. Deal? We gotta get Rachel in on it too!

  6. @Tanya awww! but any hints as to wich of those you have read?

    @ladyreader lol I hadn't thought of it that way... yeap it is seriously surprising...not one of us has read the same thing :P

    I do want to read those books, specially Maria V's since are the ones I've heard more about between the 2 authors:P

    oooh I'm in...but always bearing with me since here I can't always get all the books ~oh precious beautiful books~ you can get over there...hehe have to talk to Rachel! hehe
