I was at a YA Librarian day a few months back and Teri Lesesne spoke about having everyone in her class create a reading history. It sounded like fun, so I thought I'd give it a try.
We read several books for school, but I'm not including those.
I read Little Women - probably after watching the movie
After Clueless came out, I read a review in the school newspaper saying it was an adaptation of Emma. So I read Emma and I was hooked on Jane Austen. I read all her novels. (My three favorites and I adore these covers!)
My senior year, I had two study halls back to back. I would hide in the library stacks and read - pulling books off the shelves. I only remember two. The Count of Monte Cristo - which I LOVED and one about the titanic, which I think might be Amanda/Miranda. I remember being annoyed that someone checked it out while I was in the middle of reading it...
From my hometown library, I went through two reading phases:
Spy Books: Evelyn Anthony, Len Deighton, and Jack Higgins
Romance Thrillers: I raced through Victoria Holt's and Phyllis A, Whitney's books
Plus of course, I went through more Mary Higgins Clark
I read John Grisham and Sue Grafton
I know I read more, but I'm having a hard time remembering them. I would come home with a huge stack of books in my arms - as many as I could carry. I frequently read what my mother or my sister read.
What books did you read as a teen?
