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

3

Duh, the main text of the class.

2. Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

17470674

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

7896527

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

5907

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

2294528

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

13831

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

1124884

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

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

17332556

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

9. Sabriel (Abhorsen #1)  by Garth Nix

518848

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

2213661

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!
