Hello everyone,

Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults would like your help in brainstorming
titles to nominate for our lists.

We would love to know what your Top 5 favorite fantasy novels are, and
also what your favorites were when you were a teen.

Below I've included our list of titles that have been nominated so far,
get you thinking.  Excluded are titles previously featured on one of our
lists, and books not available in paperback.

Please reply to me, and I will post everyone's suggestions in mid-July.
