Britta at ILTB says about herself: "I am a teenager obsessed with a few things- YA books being at the top."
Britta asked for and will post the 10 books that had a powerful effect on my life. I gathered the list with the idea of choosing books read over many years and their influence, organizing the list chronologically in terms of when read. That was the place--and I enjoyed very much thinking about the books I've read and their impact on my life.
