  4. Great list! I've only read a couple of these. John Green made my list and quite a few others, too. I loved when they went to Amsterdam to find that author. It was quirky and different than the typical contemp novel.

    Oh my God - Graceling!!! This novel just...speechless. I loved it so much! Although I have to agree with what you wrote - other than Graceling and The Hunger Games (well and obviously the Tolkien) I haven't even heard of these others. Definitely going to look them up!

  19. I highly recommend all of the ones listed, but as there are WAY more books in the world than I could ever find time to read, I'm sure you'll get to them when you can. :) Thanks for your comment!

  21. The only one of these I've read is The Lord of the Rings which I totally didn't think of when making my list, even though it's perfect. I have a couple of others on my two read list.
