Top Teen Books from NPR

Hi guys,

If you have been paying attention to bookish type news NPR had a list of books to vote on to decide what the Top 100 teen books are. They recently released the results at this link here.
I decided after seeing a blog post on Escape In A Book, I would do what they did and list all the ones that I have read and which ones I want to read and also have on my bookshelf to read.

The books I have read are bolded. The books I want to read are in orange. The books I have on my shelf to read are in orange and italicized.
