9. The Keeper's Chronicles by Becky Wallace.
10. The Defy Series by Sara B. Larson.

Had to add a few honorable mentions this time as well because 10 just wasn't enough. So here they are.

  2. I would LOVE to take this class! I haven't read any of these books so it would be so eye opening for me. Too bad these courses aren't real, right? Ha. Great list!

  11. Um, YES TO UPROOTED. That'd be a fun one to teach. And I'm glad to see Ursula LeGuin and Mary Stewart make your list - particularly LeGuin! Hers were some of the first fantasy books I remember reading as a child.

    Layla@The Midnight Garden

  12. I haven't read any of these except for Throne of Glass. I really want to read Uprooted, though; I've heard so many good things about it!

  13. Great list Jamie! Have you read the Seven Realms series by Cinda Williams Chima? It's amazing!
