How many of these books have you read?  Do you agree with the list?  (I have to admit, the bitter side of me wants to scribble over Mockingjay with a virtual sharpie....but alas, the world has spoken :)


  1. I'll probably scribble over Clockwork Angel. ;) There aren't any surprises in that list.

  2. I'd scribble over Clockwork Angel in a heartbeat. But I loved Mockingjay...except for the end...Perhaps I should say...I loved The Hunger Games instead lol

  3. i am pleased with the list i love cassie and becca...great titles

  4. I've only read a few from this list. I'm more of a realistic/contemp girl, and that's sadly lacking here. So for me, the list is a bit disappointing (but that's not to say they're not great books! just not my thing...).

    Thanks for posting the video. :)

  5. I've read all these books and I'm totally not surprised they made the list! I loved every single one of them!

  6. I like where Clockwork Angel stands (Woohoo CA!), but I would scribble and scratch out Mockingjay AND Nightshade.

  7. Yay for CLOCKWORK ANGEL! So glad it won :)

  8. Definitely agree with a few of them. The hunger games was amazing, mockingjay tore my heart out but I think the bittersweet ending was fitting considering everything they had been through. :)

  9. Glad to see Before I Fall on the list, but missing The Sky is Everywhere!
