When Michelle Norris tweeted that The Backseat Book Club is putting a list together of the top 100 books for kids 9-14, I got very excited. When the post asked me to leave a comment with my top 5 books, I got very stressed. It would be much easier to come up with a list of 100, than a list of 5, but I’m going to try.
I’ve given myself a few ground rules:
- I have 10 minutes to decide
I can’t look to the internet for help
I can only pick books from the last 10 years (I got too stressed when I started to think about every book ever published)
By: Raina Telgemeier
The One and Only Ivan
By: Katherine Applegate
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda
By: Tom Angelberger
The Invention of Hugo Cabret
By: Brian Selznick
By: Louis Sachar
That was fun. How about you? Can you pick just five?
P.S. It only took me 3 minutes to pick the books:)
