YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten


teens' top tenThe 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 fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on 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 between August 15 and Teen Read Week™ (October 9-15, 2016) on the Teens’ Top Ten site. The winners will be announced the week after Teen Read Week.
