What Is the List of 100 Books You Should Read before You Turn 20?

This is a list made by our teens in response to the NPR list of 100 books of all time for teens. Our teens didn’t like the NPR list and set about making their own based on their favorites but also what makes a good book to them. Things like provokes discussion and classic made their criteria. Which ones have you read? Which ones are your favorites? Maybe you’d make your own list.

Many thanks to the reader who suggested that a printable list of the 100 books would be useful. What a fabulous idea! How can you use this list?

  • Keep on Hand– While you visit the library and book sales so you can pick up books from the list

  1. Hello Heather,
    I am a home educator and have been reading your blog for a while. I am subscribed to your blog via feedly, which is an interface for RSS feeds. I suppose that’s not enough to be able to see the printable list?
    Best regards,

    1. Hi Katrien,
