Ten Books on the Syllabus for Young Adult Lit 101
Top Ten Tuesdays are hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, where we make lists of our top ten books (or something else!) based on that week’s prompt. The topics are provided ahead of time and can be found here. Book links bring you to Goodreads or my review.
I love this week’s topic: the top ten books on my syllabus if I taught a ____ 101 class. I decided to go with the general Young Adult 101 class. The first half of the semester would be the fluffy, feelsy books and the second half would be the heavier topics featured in YA.
Second Chance Summer | Saint Anything | All the Bright Places | I’ll Meet You There | Tease
Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda |Emmy & Oliver | Meant to Be |
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before | Anna and the French Kiss
I still need to read Anna! I honestly don’t know how I have avoided it for so long. Also, Second Chance Summer. I have read all of Matson’s other books, but people say Second Chance Summer is sad, so (as usual) I’ve avoided it.
Oh god yes it’s so sad but so fantastic.
I’ve had Meant to Be on my shelf for such a long time. I keep promising myself that I’m going to read it, but I always forget about it. 🙁
I thought it was super cute! I definitely shipped the couple but I won’t spoil much else 😉
What a delightful selection! I’ve read most of your suggested reading, with the exception of three books – All the Bright Places, Tease, Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda. Guess I’ve got some reading to do if I want to ace your class 😉
Haha yesss, those ones are good! Simon and ATBP were my favorites of those three.
Oh I LOVE your topic. Everyone has such creative ideas this week. 🙂 I love the idea of splitting it up into heavy and light books. All the bright places and I’ll be there are such great choices for the heavy part of the semester. Unfortunately, I have not read any from the lighter side but I think I need to. Emmy & Oliver is on my TBR!
YAY read E&O I LOVED IT
I absolutely love how you covered this topic! I love so many of these books. I would attend the class. Aren’t you loving this week’s topic?
People have some really cool topics! I love when its kind of open-ended.
