WWE + Teens + Reading = YALSA’s Top Teen

Worldwide Wresting Entertainment has teamed up with the Young Adult Library Service Association to list books that are the favorite of teens.  This year teens between the age of 12 and 18 nominated their favorite books from August 23rd, to September 17th.  The winners were announced in a webcast from WWE Diva Eve Torres.  Click here to see the webcast.  

Here is the teen’s top choice

  1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  2. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
  3. Heist Society by Ally Carter
  4. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
  5. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
  6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  7. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
  8. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  9. Fire by Kristin Cashore
  10. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

Rational for inclusion: These books are based on popularity and recommendation of teens for other teens.  Having the books that are popular encourages reading among teens.  I have not personally read any of these books so I am relaying on the reviews given on Amazon.  So I caution any teacher or parent to check out the book first to see if it is acceptable for your family or students.  If you click on each of the book’s title you will be connect to Amazon’s review of each book.

Enjoy these popular teen books!
