Thank you Trees of Reverie for hosting a challenge for Day 2 of the Bout of Books 12.0 Read-A-Thon!! Today's challenge is titled Top Ten Recommends.

The Challenge: You’ve just started to work at a bookstore (or library) - what are your top ten go-to book recommendations? 
You may select any TEN BOOKS of your choice. These books can be from a specific genre, or you may like to choose a few books from various genres.

The following ten books are my picks for young adults or middle school readers!
