Top 10 Tuesday: Required Reading for Teens

This is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke & The Bookish.

So, I think my list pretty much assumes that this is not a class reading list – because I’m pretty sure a lot of these books are either too ‘girly’ to appeal to teenage boys, or would definitely not be allowed in the average classroom. Still – I think my list makes sense! Looking forward to your thoughts, let me know what you think!

Imagination is Important, y’all:


1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery
2. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone by J.K. Rowling

Because Losing People Sucks:


3. The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
4. A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
5. Love is the Higher Law by David Levithan

On Loving Yourself:


6. North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley
7. The DUFF by Kody Keplinger

Because People are People, No Matter How Different:


8. The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman
9. Annexed by Sharon Dogar
10. To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
