A couple weeks ago Melissa at The Book Nut wrote this post and I loved the idea so I asked her if I could co-opt it and make my own list. She told me to go ahead. I like so many of the books she mentioned, but thought others would be good as well. I imagine if lots of people made lists we would end up with a lot of different books. There would be some crossovers, but in the end we would have a pretty diverse list I think. Here is mine. 5 MG books and 5 YA. Several of these I have already given to boys with enthusiastic response. The MG: The YA: And a bonus book of poetry for the YA crowd: What would be on your lists?
