A-Z How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest (Letter L)

  The Challenge is over 1000 strong (amazing, huh?). Hosted by:  Arlee Bird, Alex J Cavanaugh, Jen Daiker and Talli Rolland.
For those who maybe haven't stopped by before, I'm doing a How Many Have You Read/Heard Contest. Each day will feature YA audiobooks I've listened to that have titles starting with that day's letter.

To enter, comment on which books you've read. Most will count as one entry. Older/more obscure books will count as two.

At the end of the month I'll draw names for several prizes including cool bookmarks, books, ARCs and a $10 Barnes and Noble gift certificate.

BTW, "Q" day will have a separate query crit giveaway.
"A" and "The" don't count in the title, and I'm not using multiple titles in a series or author names unless I'm desperate.

Now, for  

Liar As a writer, we're told that an unreliable narrator is tricky to pull off. Justine Larbalestier did it wonderfully (I think), by making it as plain as the title on the cover. (worth two entries)

Leviathan (Leviathan, #1) One of the first books I read where I thought, Ah, so this is Steampunk. Even though I'm still not totally sold on Steampunk, I'm now totally sure that anything written by Scott Westerfeld is worth reading.

Life As We Knew It (Last Survivors, #1) Dystopian with a disaster of Lunar proportions, which have changed since an asteroid knocked our moon closer to us. (worth one entry)

Losing Faith Okay, so I didn't listen to this one. I read it before it was even sold, and my name is in the acknowledgments, so it's making this list. (worth two entries)

Looking for Alaska LOOKING FOR ALASKA is a book worth far more than the sum of its controversial scenes. (worth one entry)

The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) Demi-gods fighting monsters on the loose and gods gone amuck. Great fun. Enjoyed this whole series. (worth one entry)

The Luxe (Luxe, #1) Gossip Girls set in New York City a century ago. Oh, how I love Historicals. (worth one entry)

To enter, comment on which books you've read. 

And feel free to add a comment later in the month if you read/listen to something because I mentioned it here.
