YALSA has announced the nominations for the Top Ten Teen Books in 2013. View the 2013 list of nominated titles (pdf). This is a great list to check out what are the current favorite books of teens. It’s also a good list to read from if you are writing for young adults and want to study the market.
The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on Support Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online in August and September; the winners will be announced during Teen Read Week.
You can meet the 2013 – 2014 Teens’ Top Ten book groups, who will choose the nominees for the next two years.
