Top Ten Tuesday: A 13 Year Old's Favorites!

The list prompt for Top Ten Tuesday over at The Broke and the Bookish today is.... whatever you want! So I decided to ask my 13 year old daughter (Toto) what her current favorite Top Ten books of all time are. She defines a favorite as a book that makes her want to keep reading during the day (to her... reading is for just before bedtime!)  Here's what she came up with... in no particular order.

Toto's Top Ten Favorite Books

1. Pendragon by D.J. MacHale
2. Princess of the Midnight Ball by Jessica Day George
3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
4. Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix
5. Variant by Robison Wells
6. Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
7. Deep and Dark and Dangerous by Mary Downing Hahn
8. Every Soul a Star by Wendy Mass
9. The Schwa Was Here by Neal Shusterman
10. Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli

There's a bunch on there that are favorites of mine too! How about you?


  1. Tell Toto thanks for the great suggestions :)

  2. I LOVE Princess of the Midnight Ball! I'm excited for the third book coming out soon!

  3. I think it's amazing that your daughter and you both read. My mom's a non-fiction reader, and I basically read everything as long as it doesn't make me feel too depressed. But we seldomly read the same things.

  4. Wow - I loved reading your daughter's list - and comparing it to what my step-son's would be. The Hunger Games would be on it as well.

  5. Oh Yay! The Schwa Was Here! I'm glad she liked it as much as us!

  6. Wahoo! Love it. There are a couple here I need to try out. Stargirl is a definite favorite here too. Gee, I wonder who I can draft to help me with a post around here?!?!?

    Clever woman!

  7. This is a gerat list! Stargirl is such a wonderful book for a teen girl.

  8. That's a pretty diverse list! Sounds like she takes after you in reading choices :)

  9. The only book on this list that I've read is THE HUNGER GAMES. I clearly need to get reading. Thanks for the suggestions, Toto. :)

  10. great looking list; I've read a handful of them and I recognize authors names on others. I am going to copy this down as Natalya is looking for new and possibly different reads. thank you Toto and Suey for the list.
