Top 100 YA List


I found this list on Novel Thoughts (also where I found the image) and quickly discovered that it's been making it's way around the blogosphere. I noticed that nobody seemed to know where it actually came from, so I decided to find out. It took a lot more digging that I would have thought, but I finally found it here: Boktycke. And it's Swedish! I'm not quite sure where they found their info since Google Translate doesn't always work that well, but I can't resist a list. I'm a list addict. There are some great books here though :]
Some disclaimers: 1) It's actually a list of the most popular books and 2) there's some Middle Grade mixed in here too.
The bold titles are the ones I've already read (some even have my reviews linked) and the italics are ones that were already in my TBR pile.
