Top Ten Tuesday is an awesome meme hosted by the lovely folks @ The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is top ten:

Books From the YA Genre I’ve Recently Added To My TBR List

I’m going to do something a bit different here. Instead of new releases, I’m going to list retro YA books. I love collecting vintage YA books so here are some that I have recently added to my shelves:

1. The Ghost Next Door by Wylly Folk St. John: I have wanted to read this book for ages so when I saw a copy on Thrift books I just had to purchase it.

2. Summer of Fear by Lois Duncan: I already own a copy of this book but I like collecting different editions.

3. The Experiment (Nightmare Hall series) by Diane Hoh: I bought a lot of Nightmare Hall books on eBay – looking forward to diving back into this series!

4. Run for Your Life (Hart and Soul series) by Jahnna N. Malcolm: I finally managed to track down a copy that wasn’t too expensive. Still waiting on it coming from the US – keep your fingers crossed for me that it arrives safely! (and now I’ve jinxed myself!) 😜

5. House of Stairs by William Sleator: This book has long been on my to-buy list.

6. Soulmate (Night World series) by L.J. Smith: Again, I already own this series but I am collecting the original UK editions. Only have one more to go and I’ve got them all!

7. That Cheating Sister (The Stepsisters series) by Tina Oaks: Another series I have been trying to buy in its entirety – that’s me now collected the set. 😂

8. Summer Nights (Saturday Night series) by Caroline B. Cooney: I own the first three books in the series so thought I should get this one before it becomes too rare.

9. Just Friends by Norma Klein: I vaguely remember this book from my childhood and I have been meaning to check it out again.

10. Twin Sisters by Janice Harrell: I thought this book looked interesting so I picked up a copy of this (and it’s sequel).

  1. I love your approach to this week’s topic! I don’t remember any of these, except Lois Duncan is ringing some bells – down the rabbit hole of the internet I go in search of why! Haha
