Wonderful list! I especially love the addition of Anne of Green Gables, one of my faves from when I was young. I was so enamoured of both book and movie that when I started high school I registered myself as Jenna Anne Cosgrove (in actual fact, I have no middle name) and this stuck with me for a couple of years! Oooops, is it really indentity fraud if you didn't mean it that way??

I've totally read 92 - 100. ; )

Bree said...

I just realized there were comments for my list. Duh...

Great comment, Freddie! LOL

YA lit is so addictive. I find myself not wanting to read adult fiction.

Jen - ha ha too funny.I don't think that's identity fraud.
