  1. I love your list! I considered Stephenie Meyer and Suzanne Collins on my list, too. I just didn't have enough room.

    Thanks for stopping by Reading It All!

  2. great choices! I only read the first book by Paolini, though. I was impressed that a kid wrote it, but...you could really tell a kid wrote it, as well, and there were a few errors I just couldn't get past enough to finish up the trilogy.

    Thanks for stopping by my TTT!

  3. I ADORE all things Alice in Wonderland. It's always wonderful to find a like minded Alice fan. :)

  4. Awesome list! I'm a huge fan of Dr. Seuss :-) And Rowling, Collins & Jane Austen. I'll have to check out some of the other authors & books you mentioned.
