In the Library?

I have an amazingly awesome question that needs answering.

If you could choose any books to put in your library, which would you choose?

This question is important because the Director wants to order Young Adult books. And, of course, I have so many lists of books that I could give him to order. But I want a second opinion, and since everyone who reads my blog is a bookish person, I figure I might as well ask.

And we shall see if I get any responses... trust me, though, it's worth it to respond =P

Tell the Director to get anything and everything. The more the merrier!

Seriously though, I would suggest getting anything by:

Elizabeth Scott
David Levithan
Scott Westerfeld
Justine Larbalestier
Maureen Johnson
Juliet Marillier
Alyson Noel
E. Lockhart

And books:
She's So Money- Cherry Chava
Pretty Little Liars series- Sara Shephard
Tantalize- Cynthia Leitich Smith.

That's all I can think of now, although there's loads more. Hope that helped. xD

That's so funny, Khyrinthia! You mentioned the Pretty Little Liars books and last year I had the Director (a different Director at that time) to get them... so I found it funny you mentioned them =P

I think the most important thing, as TowerofBooks mentioned, is to pick a variety so everybody can have some choices. Some of my favorite YA (and crossover YA) books are:

*Anything by Cynthia Voigt (examples include the Tillerman series starting with Homecoming and the Kingdom series starting with Jackaroo).

*Burning Up by Caroline B. Cooney

*The View from Saturday and From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg

*To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee

*The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton

*The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster

*Burning Up by Caroline B. Cooney
