YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge 2011

                                                             YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge

Oh my gosh! The Book Vixen is hosting the most fabulous reading challenge for next year (yes, I'm already signing up for it).
YA of the 80s and 90s Reading Challenge 2011 (sounds awesome right?). for more information about the reading challenge or to sign up click HERE.

Since I found so many books that were originally published from 1980-1999, I have decided to start this challenge next year by reading what I have at home before I start at the library. Truth be told, I had no idea that I owned so many books from that time frame. Mainly because I started reading most of these after they had been reprinted many times. So without further blabbering from me, I present my tentative list. 

Books that I Plan to Read:
The Ruby in the Smoke- Philip Pullman (1985)
The Shadow in the North- Philip Pullman (1986)
The Golden Compass- Philip Pullman (1995)
The Subtle Knife- Philip Pullman (1997)

Many Waters- Madeleine L'Engle (1986)
Troubling a Star- Madeleine L'Engle (1994)
A Ring of Endless Light- Madeleine L'Engle (1980)
And Both Were Young- Madeleine L'Engle (1983)
In the Forest of the Night- Amelia Atwater-Rhodes (1999)
Beach House- R.L. Stine (1992)
Rules of the Road- Joan Bauer (1998)
Dark Lord of Derkholm- Diana Wynne Jones (1998)
The Blue Sword- Robin McKinley (1982)
Locked in Time- Lois Duncan (1985)
