Top Ten "Older" Books

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and The Bookish.

Top Ten "Older" Books 
With this week's list, on some YA/Middle Grade books I don't want people to forget about. 

1) The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot: I enjoy Meg's current books a lot, but her older ones are and will probably always be my favorites, especially this series. It has ghosts, romance, and mystery! Plus no love triangle! It doesn't get much better than that. :D 
2) 1-800-Where-R-You series by Meg Cabot: Another amazing one by Meg! Love the paranormal aspects of this one. Plus the MC is feisty and kick ass!
3) Gemma Doyle Trilogy: If you love historical books as well as amazing writing, plot development, AND character development, this one is for you! I absolutely adore this series, and I hope people continue to read it for years to come!
4) The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke: I LOVED this book when I was in elementary school, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I can't even begin to describe how great it its, but if you haven't read it yet, I highly suggest you give it a try as well as suggest it to any young kids you know!  
5) The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King: A.S. King is a pretty well known author these days, but her first book wasn't as widely known. It's amazing, though. It involves pirates and treasure chests as well as some great plot twists! 
6) Memoirs of a Teenage Amnesiac by Gabrielle Zevin: I'm sure you all know of Gabrielle's newest books, but have you heard of this one? It's a contemporary about a girl who looses her memory and her steps to remembering. 
7) The Nature of Jade by Deb Caletti: This one is a really well written contemporary! It's slow in plot but the writing and characters make up for that majorly. Plus the ending is crazy! 
8) Insider series: This one is not as old but I still feel like not too many people know about it. It's an intricate sci-fi series that takes place in Space, and trust me, it's spectacular! 
9) Island of the Aunts by Eva Ibston: Another one I loved when I was younger. It's such a cute read, and something I hope won't be forgotten. 
10) Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine: I adored this one when I was little! It's a sweet read as well. 

And those are my top ten older reads I don't want people to forgot. :)
