YA Reading List

Yesterday I went to the absolutely fabulous Marion Public Library and one of the really helpful reference librarians recommended some YA fiction for me to read.  I’m pretty excited about the list we came up with:

The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (YALSA pick)
Miracle Wimp Miracle Wimp by Eric P. Kraft
Fat Kid Rules the World Fat Kid Rules the World by K.L. Going

Mexican White Boy Mexican White Boy by Matt de la Pena (YALSA “Reluctant Readers” pick)
The Lightning Thief The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson & The Olympians series — this book was just named the Iowa Teen Choice Award winner yesterday evening, after I got home from the library! Great timing.)
The House of the Scorpion The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer
Vampire Kisses Vampire Kisses by Ellen Schreiber
Stormbreaker Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider series)
Fruits Basket Ultimate Edition Fruits Basket Ultimate Edition by Natsuki Takaya

You can track my progress and check out my reviews at GoodReads.com.  I can’t wait!  I think I’m going to start with The Lightning Thief
