I can not believe I’ve only read 9 books on this list!!!
How many have you read?


  1. Okay, I'm really behind. I've only read Divergent. Yikes! Cinder and The Fault in Our Stars are both on the top of my TBR pile.

    BTW - I loved Divergent! Can't wait for Insurgent.

  2. I've only read 6 - Legend, A Monster Calls, Across the Universe, Peregrine, Divergent & The Scorpio Races.

  3. I've read 13 of these. I love this list...almost all of the ones I haven't read are in my high school library and on my TBR! Thanks for posting this. I wouldn't know which one to choose at this point. I'll have to think about that!

  4. I've read only 15, but at least I have a few more books that I've got waiting for me to get to. Great list!
