August 25: Top Ten Books That Would Be On Your Syllabus If You Taught YA Fantasy 101

1. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (Harry Potter #1)  by J.K. Rowling


Duh, the main text of the class.

2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury


An amazing read to scare and make the class think about a world were books get burned.

3. Throne of Glass (Throne of Glass #1)  by Sarah J. Maas


I think that every English class should have at least one really badass female hero.

4. The Hobbit (Middle-Earth Universe)  by J.R.R. Tolkien


This is another must have to show the kids of the class how the dragon can be the main thing but be destroyed before the plot is finish.

5. Howl’s Moving Castle (Howl’s Moving Castle #1)  by Diana Wynne Jones


I really wish they taught this book at my school, it is hands down one of the best books I have ever read. Plus, the movie is amazing too.

6. Alanna: The First Adventure (Song of the Lioness #1)  by Tamora Pierce


Girls in this generation really need female hero’s that kick so big butt.

7. The Hero and the Crown (Damar #1)  by Robin McKinley


A great author plus great characters. Need I say more.

8. The Burning Sky (The Elemental Trilogy #1)  by Sherry Thomas


A little like Harry Potter but also very different and full of fantasy.

9. Sabriel (Abhorsen #1)  by Garth Nix


Well I guess the class I would teach would be very female oriented because most of my books for the class would be kick butt girls, and their fantasy adventures.

10. The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman


I have not read this book yet, but its on the list. Everything I hear about this book is amazing and full of great stuff.

Hey guys! What type of 101 YA class would you teach if you could and what books would you teach/ read??? Let me know in the comments!
