Top Ten: YA Books That Use Ampersands

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl. This week’s theme was frequently used words in any genre. I decided to focus on young adult books which conform to the pattern “character a & character b” – because there are a lot!

My goals:

  1. Participate in and finish the BookRiot #ReadHarder campaign
  2. Read Deborah Harkness’ All Souls trilogy
  3. Read Emily St. John Mandel’s Station Eleven and Andy Weir’s The Martian
  4. Read George Eliot’s Middlemarch in order to fully understand Rebecca Mead’s My Life in Middlemarch
  5. Read John Ajvide Lindqvist’s Let the Right One In so that I can then watch its two film adaptations, Let the Right One In and Let Me In
  6. Read Lois Lowry’s The Giver series
  7. Read all of Rainbow Rowell‘s books (except Attachments, which I actually read in 2012 and got a like from Rainbow herself on Tumblr after posting a quote – like, oh my god, whoa #nojoke)
  8. Read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Complete Sherlock Holmes, vols. 1 & 2
  9. Read the following YA series that I completely missed over the past 5 years: Anna and the French Kiss, Divergent, If I Stay, Just One Day, and Shatter Me
  10. And blog at least once per week
