Gakked from amy34 and celestialgoldfish. I struck out what I read, and italicized what I recommend. I read a lot when I was younger, and my taste unformed. Some of these books feel dated, others didn't hit my personal sweet spot. And some of these are just plain wonderful and multi-layered, and can be read again and again....

What are yours?
There's a couple of those that I plan on reading, but of books I've read:
A wrinkle in time, Madeleine L'engle (seriously, how is this one not on their list!!)
The Story Box, Monica Hughes
Brown Girl in the Ring, Nalo Hopkinson
I imagine many people would want to see anne rice on there somewhere too, but I haven't personally read her.
I'm a bit ashamed to say I haven't read more awesome female authors, but it's largely because of lists like these, and the fact that male authors are the ones that get the prominent placings on the shelves, and get my attention. Which is why I plan to make one of next year's new year's resolutions be reading all those female authors that I've been meaning to read - elizabeth bear, ursula k leguin, mainly. I wanted to read the dust series, it always looked interesting.
