The Post in Which We Steal a Stolen Meme

Reading Song of the Day: “Beg, Steal, or Borrow” by Ray LaMontagne

Just as the title suggests, we are a stealing a meme that was already stolen numerous times from various blogs. This meme is: The Top 100 YA Books List and we are borrowing (okay, okay–stealing) it from Inspired Kathy at I Am a Reader, Not a Writer. All you do is paste the Top 100 YA books of 2011 in your post and BOLD the books that you have read. This way you can see what you’ve been missing. Inspired Kathy has no idea where this list originated, therefore we don’t either (but it’s obvious that the book did not have to be released in 2011 to end up on this list)

Whatever, it’s all in fun! So, have fun with us! Here we go…
