  1. I've actually only read two of these, TFIOS and A Monster Calls - and yes, I wish could have read them then.

  2. I read TFIOS and have a copy of The Monster Calls but haven't read it yet. I've heard such good things about Eliza and her Monsters that I'm really not surprised it made your list. Good job!

  4. I haven't read John Green yet but he's on my list. And I've heard really good things about Eliza and her Monsters, so I need to add tha tone as well!

  6. I've only read a couple of selections on this list. But growing up and moving around (son of an Air Force officer), I missed reading some of the classics as part of the English curriculum. I find myself wishing I could have read To Kill A Mockingbird with my peers and participating in the discussion of it. Or maybe not. Because I might not have liked it as much as I did reading it on my own.

    1. Oh that's a great point! There are many books I read in school that I didn't like, but LOVED when I read them later on in life.

  8. Eliza and Her Monsters almost ended up on my list. And I can see The Art of Being Normal being a great book for teenagers.

  11. All Of The Cages has such a beautiful cover, but I've never read it... oO And then there's The Fault In Our Stars... I sometimes feel like I'm the only one who wasn't all that sure about the book. I loved reading it, but somehow the hype passed me by. Still love your list tough :) My friend lent me A Monster Calls a few years back and I found it such an interesting read. Especially as it is completely different to what I would usually pick up.

  12. Interest list. I haven't read any of these and have only heard of a couple of them. I might just have to check some of them out.

  13. Such a fab list~! Love love love Eliza and Her Monsters!

  14. I enjoyed 'Stars' SO much more than I anticipated. Sure it's sad, but there's also a great deal of "joy" in the story because of Hazel and Gus' relationship. Though I've not read them, I've heard great things about Jennifer's and Tamara's books. :)

  17. I've never read any of these, but may have to give a few of them a try. Thanks for some great ideas!

  18. I have read half of these, and they were all really emotional, but beautiful reads.

  19. Fantastic set of books! The Fault in Our Stars would have made me sob as a teen. (Who am I kidding? I sobbed as an adult!)

  20. This is a great list, there are several on here that I've never heard of but now must add to my ever growing TBR pile. Can't wait to try them out!

  21. Yes yes yes to Ari and Dante. I've heard so many wonderful things about Eliza and Her Monsters. I have the author's first work that I still need to get to, but I'm looking forward to this particular title because of the praise.

  26. Great list! TFIOS is a great pick - I felt super impacted by it as a teen. It was a great reminder to love people in the time we're given.
