by titanicfanaic on 2/13/2011 9:19:19 PM


um-where is the outsiders? it didn't even make the list. it should be number one. about one shock away from from a mental breakdown/heart attack. i'm sure its just a simple mistake. it will be noticed and added to the list i'm sure. i'll be back in ten minutes and if its not here i'll probably scream.

by titanicfanaic on 2/13/2011 9:08:33 PM


I've read thirty-five of those books! I'm not really into the guides though. There are some books on there that I'll definitely be checking out. "Gone With the Wind" is my most favorite book in the whole entire world. The Pippi Longstocking and Ramona series are my childhood. And of course, the Harry Potter books will be my favorite series forever.

by *~*Shattered_Lollipop*^~** on 2/10/2011 11:37:04 AM


hey girls!! i think the best books are Matched by Ally Condle. this book is very good!!! another great book/series is the Alpha series, 39 clues series and the Pretty Little Liars series. i think the best book known to man is Matched. you should look it up!! no joke!! anyone have anymore good lists???

by EmmyFeddor on 2/9/2011 11:03:53 PM

by harpgirl on 2/7/2011 10:08:15 PM


ok I love Jaclyn Moriarty's books but you forgot percy Jackson and the mortal instruments and Howl's moving castle if you girls want good books please look these up!

by harpgirl on 2/7/2011 10:01:56 PM


I find that these books are too girly, and I don't have much interest in them. They're also quite easy-read. Do you have any other book suggestions that have different themes than these?


by caturn on 2/6/2011 6:08:21 PM

by 5828MTB on 2/2/2011 3:02:52 PM


Ok, i have read most of these! I loved "Are you there god, its me margaret" and "Falling in love with English boys" were FANTASTIC! I love the harry potters! trust me, Tuck everlasting is NOT as interesting as they make it sound.

by LAXchick174 on 2/2/2011 8:40:15 AM


Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life by Wendy Mass is AMAZING! My great friend Samantha suggested it to me!

by LoveCupcakes on 2/1/2011 6:24:51 PM


Oh MY GOSH i love "Are You There God its me Margaret?"!!!!!!

by noodlefaye23 on 2/1/2011 6:16:07 PM


OMG I'd tell u i luv u but then i have 2 kill u is number 54!!!! that's crazy defiantly deserves the number 2 spot pll tops the Gallagher girls (sorry Ally Carter) and Beautiful Creatures isn't even on here!

by Animal477 on 2/1/2011 4:21:12 PM


OMG u sooooo have 2 read Pretty Little Liars! I'm on the 4th book out of 8 and i was hooked on the fist word of the first book

by Animal477 on 2/1/2011 4:15:00 PM


If you just had a loved one die you will LOVE Radiance. Even if you did not its a really cool book. Its about a girl (riley) who died and is in her like... afterlife. She is given a job of being a soul catcher ( she has to guide dead spirits to the bridge and over it) I can't wait for the second book shimmer to come out on March 15!

If you like Harry Potter and wizards you will like Witch and wizard. The beginning starts out slow but you have to get through it to really enjoy it. Its kinda hard to describe but I like it so much Im reading the second one (the gift). I don't think it is listed though

by hedwig38463 on 2/1/2011 8:00:09 AM


I love Catcher In The Rye! Though it does deal with the occasional mature content, its not that controversial, and its a great book about a boy trying to find himself!

by phixxee3 on 1/31/2011 7:57:10 PM


OH MY GOSH! I just read Catcher in the Rye and I'm only 16 and I was shocked at its contents! DON'T read it! Preteens and teens probably wont understand it, and will be very confused by its mature content!!!

by balletstarheart on 1/31/2011 4:12:19 PM


Hi everybody please vist my profile i will give advice on how to get lots of friends and other stuff please leave i cooment if you like my profile! thank you ;D

by madelynb2000 on 1/31/2011 10:28:34 AM


OMG I can't believe that The Hunger Games is only #13!!! It SHOULD be #1, in my opinion. Well, it IS #1 in my opinion!!! Lolz. Smile

by Chrys98 on 1/30/2011 7:06:39 PM


I've actually read a lot of these books, including Prep. Don't read Prep, trust me. It's inappropriate, the plot isn't that good, and you'll get bored. When you read the description of it, it sounds great, but in reality it's pretty bad. And especially boring. But DEFINITELY read The Perks of Being a Wallflower. It's better than the description says, I promise.
The I'd Tell You I'd Love You But Then I'd Have To Kill You books are really good, I recommend those, also.
A few more I really liked:
13 Little Blue Envelopes.
Pretty Little Liars series
And (Not from this list):
The Mortal Instruments Series
And The Infernal Devices series. (Both by Casssandra Clare)
Also, Such A Pretty Girl
and 13 Reasons Why
Princess Academy
Teach Me
The Maze Runner
Old Magic
and there's more, hahaha. I'm a book dork.

by prettynplasterd on 1/30/2011 3:55:24 PM


Someone like you should not be on this list!! i liked the friendship in the book but extreemely disliked the boyfriend part!! Marly Z.

They should have Percy Jackson!!!

by nikkistarr10123 on 1/28/2011 11:55:24 PM


I have pretty much read all of the books on this list. But there is one book that I don't think u should read and I can't stand this book at all and that is A Wrinkle in Time. I had to read it last year in 8th grade for reading and hated it. So my suggestion is to not read it.

by Madam Gir on 1/28/2011 7:49:43 PM


I absolutely LOVE too read, but the one book i cannot stand, is "Catcher in the Rye". I don't get why it's on this list or why it's considered a classicl book that you have to read in school!

by jojodramallama on 1/28/2011 7:15:23 PM


Princess Diaries series is great and so is any book by Sarah Dessen. I've read them all by S.D and my favourite is def. The Truth About Forever (a must read for any girl) though all her books are great (a) Smile

by GLover96 on 1/28/2011 6:28:19 PM


The Clique books and the Private novels are both great series'. I've read all of them for both and both the 'finales' i guess you could say, are coming out this year. So excited !!!

by Art Crazy52 on 1/28/2011 5:18:15 PM


I've read most of these. One of my favs was The Year of Secret Assignments. It's hilarious, the best! Harry Potter, of course, is awesome too.

by amazing789 on 1/28/2011 5:00:04 PM


I have read:

1. Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard.

7. Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling.

8. The Twilight Saga by Stephenie Meyer.

13. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

23. Where the Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein.

38. Charlie St. Cloud by Ben Sherwood.

57. Angus, Thongs and Full-Frontal Snogging by Louise Rennison

73. Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume.

And i loved them all except for twilight.

by wednesday1408 on 1/28/2011 1:44:41 AM


I read angus thongs and perfect snogging and i thought it was so funny! i loved it! i def reccomend it.

by pottergirl135 on 1/27/2011 8:39:45 PM


Guess I'm the only person who likes horror stories.....

by engineer2be on 1/27/2011 8:10:20 PM


ive read dork diaries, nancy drew, the giving tree, sarah plain and tall, where the wild things are, the last song,stargirl, aliie finkles rules for girls. i started ella enchanted wehen i was like 7 or 8 but never finished it. i have a a lot of these books, but havent read them yet. i want to. i just finished the second book in lisi harrison's series alphas( movers asnd fakers) like a half hour ago. love the 100 lists

by laxchik18 on 1/27/2011 6:49:20 PM


i hate where the red fern grows.. so sad. we had 2 read it in 5th grade.
but most of these iv read Smile

by janerbuy on 1/27/2011 6:47:27 PM


I love Prom, Sisterhood of the traveling pants, Confessions of a shopaholic, and Nicholas Sparks. I hate Jane Erye though. half of the book is her describing the change of seasons.

by beth_elbow123 on 1/27/2011 6:40:45 PM


Great list!! I'm reading the Clique books and the Private Novels and the final book for both are coming out this year, so i need some new books to start reading.

by tye-dyegirl105 on 1/27/2011 6:36:08 PM


I recommed The Lovely Bones! It's so deep in thought! But if you don't like creepy, don't read it. Once you get over the first chapter its awesome!

by jamieonarainyday on 1/27/2011 6:25:33 PM


I have to say the best of Meg Cabot is DEFINITELY the mediator series and 1 800 where r u series.....they are SO AMAZING!! Also...there is this series called the Homelander series....and the first book is called The Last Thing I Remember......AWESOME BOOKS!!! They are NEVER boring....I never want to put them down!! Haha! Thanks for these books though!! I have been looking for a new good one! Now I have some ides!!

by topchef88 on 1/27/2011 5:02:29 PM


seriously... Amelia Bedelia.... What's with all of the little kid books?

by hayleerose9 on 1/27/2011 4:55:30 PM


In the classics section, I was looking for Lord of the Flies, but I didn't see it. It's about a group of young british boys who end up stranded on an island and try to govern themselves. the book actually served as inspiration for the one and only television series 'Lost'. It's one of my favorites along with Perks of Being a Wallflower, Harry Potter, Nancy Drew, Sherlock Holmes, Alice in Wonderland, etc. A lot of these books are wonderful reads, so if you can, try them out and take a peek in a bookstore!

by biskii on 1/27/2011 4:47:57 PM


I <3 The Hunger Games

by sarah4eva on 1/27/2011 4:42:14 PM


i LOVE the 100's list!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

by hawaiiancherry on 1/27/2011 4:39:36 PM


i read the Princess Diaries and it was pretty interesting....but in a okay way i guess. Not the most appropriate though lolz. They should have Diary of a Wimnpy Kid, Dear Dumb Diary and this book im reading now called The Boyfriend List.

by *forevercollab* <3 on 1/27/2011 4:29:05 PM


I love the gallagher girl series(i'd tell you i love you but then i'd have to kill you)

9. I'd Tell you I loved you, but then i'd have to kill you (and the next two in the series!)
10. 13 little blue envelopes - really good
11. the princess diares series!
12. Oh My Gods & Goddess Boot Camp, espcially if you like mythology Smile Those are some of my favorite books

by declaration on 1/27/2011 4:02:37 PM


ok, so the Georgia Nicolson Diary series is the BEST. the books are so funny, and i reread them all th time, and the humor NEVER gets old. but dont read it around other people, i actually broke out laughing in class, and everyone was staring at me Smile and the Clique Series was really good. i'm gonna start the Sarah Dessen books. i hope they're good!

by andrealicious on 1/27/2011 3:26:56 PM


I love the last song! it's such a good book

by matyprincess on 1/27/2011 2:15:26 PM


ok i deffinately think that Water For Elephants should be in here, its a really good book that is being made into a movie soon and i love it!!! oh yeah it's also the same case with the book I Am Number Four, that was amazinggg too

by mkroberts96 on 1/27/2011 1:53:09 PM


omg i love love love sarah dessen's books!! they are all amazing! she is like the best author ever! Smile

by dogluvrsoph on 1/27/2011 1:49:28 PM


Oh yeah and I am part of the "slim chance" that does not obsess over Harry Potter. It's not BAD. But I just don't like it. It does have good points, though, like Luna and Mrs Norris (though I want the kitty to be named Janeen!! ^_^). But I just don't like it.

by tomboy2010 on 1/27/2011 1:44:50 PM


I ♥ #8!!!!!!!!!

by tomboy2010 on 1/27/2011 1:40:23 PM


oh my gosh, I would so recommend any of you reading ALL of judy blumes books! she's an amazing and gifted author!

by ilovehearts13 on 1/27/2011 1:15:10 PM


yay! i love nancy drew!

by girlegurl333 on 1/27/2011 12:53:11 PM


Twilight doesn't not even deserve this list, it is HORRIBLE! I have read both Twilight AND Harry Potter and can say HP is SOOOOOOOO much Better! I loved the childhood wonders and the complete classics groups of books! Those are great pieces of writing! The last song was eh? ok.

by ashley19rose on 1/27/2011 12:44:38 PM


Why aren't the "Uglies" series by Scott Westerfield on here? Those books are reeeeally good and very thought prevoking. Oh my gosh I absolutely HATED Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth Bennet seemed kind of catty.
