YALSA, aka The Young Adult Library Services Association, has announced the 2016 Teens’ Top Ten. As much as I love the other ALA (American Library Association) awards, this one is chosen by the young readers themselves.  During Teen Read Week (October 9-15, 2016), readers aged 12 to 18 vote online for their favorite titles. This year, they chose:

  1. Alive by Chandler Baker (Disney/Hyperion)
  2. All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (Random House/Alfred A. Knopf).
  3. The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough (Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine Books)
  4. Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (Macmillan/Henry Holt & Co.)
  5. Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (Random House/Delacorte Press)
  6. Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone (Disney/Hyperion)
  7. The Novice: Summoner: Book One by Taran Matharu (Macmillan/Feiwel & Friends)
  8. Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Random House/Alfred A. Knopf)
  9. When by Victoria Laurie (Disney/Hyperion)
  10. Suicide Notes from Beautiful Girls by Lynn Weingarten (Simon & Schuster/Simon Pulse)

I didn’t paste in images of the covers because you can see them all in this video.

I’d love to say that I’ve read all of these but I haven’t, so if you’ll excuse me, I have some books to request.
