Eight YA Books I Really Want to Read

I’m inspired by a lively book discussion the youth staff had about the Texas Lonestar Reading List this morning.  The following books aren’t necessarily on any Lonestar list, and many of them are several years old, but the meeting got me thinking about all the books out there that I still really want to read!  Too bad I’m such a slow poke.  Here they are, in no particular order…

 Zen and the Art of Faking It by Jordan Sonnenblick

Peter and the Starcatchers by Dave Barry

The Lightening Thief by Rick Riordan

The Night Dance by Suzanne Weyn

The Wednesday Wars by Gary D. Schmidt

Dark Water Rising by Marian Hale

Daughter of Venice by Donna Jo Napoli

The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer

By the way, I highly recommend Goodreads to organize and track all the books you’ve ever read and ever want to read!

    I have these periods where I feel totally overwhelmed by how much I want to read. Sigh.

    Goodreads is awesome. 🙂
