Books Listed in Among Others

So this is the list of books that I have compiled from the book Among Others. It is an amazing impressive list. I have separated the books into 3 categories–children’s/young adult (aka books Mori read when she was younger), sci-fi/fantasy (aka books Mori reads now and loves), and lastly other adult books (aka books that Mori reads in school or that the librarian, her grandpa, etc. give to her). I’ve listed them alphabetically by author. Sometimes only an author is mentioned, or sometimes and author and then later a book written by that author. I’ve tried my best to capture them all.
