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:
- Alive by Chandler Baker (Disney/Hyperion)
- All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven (Random House/Alfred A. Knopf).
- The Game of Love and Death by Martha Brockenbrough (Scholastic/Arthur A. Levine Books)
- Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo (Macmillan/Henry Holt & Co.)
- Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon (Random House/Delacorte Press)
- Every Last Word by Tamara Ireland Stone (Disney/Hyperion)
- The Novice: Summoner: Book One by Taran Matharu (Macmillan/Feiwel & Friends)
- Illuminae by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff (Random House/Alfred A. Knopf)
- When by Victoria Laurie (Disney/Hyperion)
- 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.
