YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten is all about teen choice! Teen readers between the ages of 12 and 18 can vote online for their favorites from this year’s list of nominated titles from now through October 19th. The resulting Teens Top Ten will be announced during Teen Read Week, the third week in October. You can find an annotated list and a book trailer of the nominees as well as tips for promoting the Teens’ Top Ten to teen readers on ALA’s website. And be sure to check out the fantastic TTT Tumblr! Help us get the word out, and use #TTT13 on Twitter and Tumblr when promoting the Teens’ Top Ten!
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 reading 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 nominations list for the Teens’ Top Ten by nominating their favorite titles published in the previous year.
More information, including a list of these fabulous Teens Top Ten book groups, may be found on ALA’s website.
