Book Three of the Unicorn Chronicles. I don't even. I got Into the Land of the Unicorns from a library book sale, all beat up and old, when I was in middle school. Fell in love and waited on tenterhooks forever until I found Song of the Wanderer. Then was devastated to find out there wasn't more.

...I fail at the internets. I obsessively follow fic authors I like to see when/if they update their works. It hasn't occurred to me until now to follow book authors. orz

Hi. .///.

Hope you lovelies are doing well. Go check out my book meme in the previous post, I wanna see other peoples' lists!

Drank too much tea when I met with my statistics study group tonight. Borders does tea service! Yum, but I wasn't expecting the caffeine to affect me so much. ^^;;

Stolen from all over the internet, I'm sure, but most recently from the lovely [ profile] nicocoer.

Don't take too long to think about it. List 15 books you've read that will always stick with you -- list the first 15 you can recall in 15 minutes. Don't take too long to think about it. Tag 15 friends (& while it is easy to tag more, part of the challenge is to think about which 15 friends would have the weirdest or most interesting book list), including me. If you don't want to play, no sweat. Feel free to go about your business. Here are mine, in no particular order (and these are just the 15 for today, at this moment):

Lots of sci-fi and fantasy and weird things below :D )

So I was reading through [ profile] mistful's journal and got sucked into a couple of essays she wrote about children's books such as The Secret Garden and hilarious reviews of various YA fantasy novels.

And it got me thinky. Below is thinky (well, it's squee liberally laced with thinky). )

Here below is a brief (hah!) list of some children/YA fantasy that left a deep impression on me. So, what's your list? Any recommendations?

Bring on the books! )

Okay, that's enough verbiage for now. But yes! I want to hear from you, have you read YA novels? What sorts of books have left deep impressions on you? Any recommendations? Want to convince me that adult fiction isn't all bad? Get to it! :P
