McKenzie's List of Must Read Books!!

Yesterday we went to Barnes and Noble.. always a grand adventure.. while there my 5th child (who isn't really mine and will henceforth be referred to as 5th child).. made her list of must read books.. ones she didn't already have.. I thought maybe others might be interested...

City of Fallen Angels

Clockwork Prince

The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest

The Gray Wolf Throne

Perchance to Dream

So Silver Bright


Perfect.. but I don't know what Perfect.. so I can't show a cover


  1. The author of Inheritance is a young home-schooled kid from up the Clark Fork valley near Missoula. I also note that "Hornet's Nest" is not a book that stands alone; reading the books in order is essential, beginning with "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo." And...I would strongly recommend reading the books before seeing the movie, and the sexual violence/forcible anal rape in these books is not suitable for a child.

  2. A child no, but a teenager on the brink of adulthood.. has more room to work. YA books have changed so much over the years and they really should be rated... if rated is the word.. It's just that a book such as Harry Potter or Lightening Thief is written for one end of the scale.. 11, 12 year olds and Hornet's nest for the other..

    It just seems that YA tries to address the entire teenage span and we know how very much kids change during that time..

    Yeah, Christopher Paolini is an amazing young man..
