Retro Reading List: 2001-2002

I'm going to limit my commentary on this one, unless of course you comment; I'm just sick of not having all these titles readily accessible to me online, so I decided to type it up and add Goodreads links for myself here -- if they exist! many of them don't, and many more have zero summaries or helpful reviews -- until I can reread or remember enough to review some of these titles and feel good about adding them there.

Now there is only one reading list not yet up on the internet, senior year of high school. I'm saving that.


I added my usual formatting - strikethroughs for books I hated, italics for 3.5 to 4-star books, bold for 4.5 and 5-stars. Using my original ratings, no matter how much some of them may confuse me now.
