yalsa%20logo.gif Wait, you don’t know what YALSA is? Well that’s the Young Adult Library Services Association and they have published their (excuse me, your) Teen Top Ten list for 2008. Over 8,000 teens voted for this year’s winners!

YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten:

1. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer

2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney

4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

5. Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson

6. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare

7. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray

8. Extras by Scott Westerfeld

9. Before I Die by Jenny Downham

10. Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson


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 in April during National

Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite

titles each year during Teen Read Week. Readers aged twelve to

eighteen can vote right here, online, anytime that week. Be sure to keep checking the dates for next year so you too can vote for your favorites!
