It’s time for the Teens’ Top Ten again! Voting is open from August 15th through September 15th!
The Teens’ Top Ten is all about teen choice! Teen readers can vote for their favorite books from this year’s list of nominated titles. The resulting Teens’ Top Ten will be announced during Teen Read Week. The nominated books are posted on YALSA’s website. There is an annotated nominations list as well as tips for promoting the Teens’ Top Ten to teen readers. Don’t forget to use #TTT12 on Twitter to help us get the word out!
The Teens’ Top Ten is part of an ongoing project that connects teen book groups with publishers of young adult books. The publishers provide advance reader copies to selected teen book groups and the teens evaluate the books and provide feedback to the publishers. These same teen book groups create the voting list for the Teens’ Top Ten by nominating their favorite titles published in the previous year.
More information, including a list of the rockstar Teens’ Top Ten book groups, may be found on YALSA’s website.
