NPR's Top 100 YA

Here's the list that NPR came up with recently - their listeners' take on the Top 100 YA novels of all time. I'm highlighting in green all those I've read, and highlighting in blue those that I started but couldn't or didn't finish. There are plenty of series on this list that I've read the first book or two, but haven't finished all of them. Looking at the list, I can see that I've read most of them, and that I need to get serious and start reading more Sarah Dessen and John Green!
