    I was such a HUGE fear street fan. I remember being really into the fear street books with the cheerleaders because I was a cheerleader.

    Fun list! 😀

    We have The Outsiders in common. I think I read that for school, but I really fell in love with it. I still want to read To Kill A Mockingbird. I was a big Stephen King fan in my teens too- not sure why I didn’t add him to the list! Awesome choices.

    To Kill a Mockingbird and The Outsiders are two books that were required for school that I have gladly re-read on my own; great list!
