Great List!! I've read probably half?
Loved 13 Reasons Why. I highly recomment it!
I just recently read The Giver. It was short, but good.
Flowers in the Attic. Also really good!
Angus, Thongs was pretty funny.
The Outsiders is on my list of favorites as is Harry Potter and Twilight.

I've only read 13 of the books on the list. I plan to read two others.

The Outsiders is my all-time favorite novel. I re-read last week. As an adult, I have a much different, and much greater appreciation for it than I did before.
