Monthly Monday Poll: April 2017 – 1999 Was An Awesome Year for YA

Monday Poll @ YALSA's The HubHappy Spring, Hub readers!

Last month, we got nostalgic about our most-loved YA fantasy from the 90s. In a result that should surprise no one, the opening volume of Harry Potter was the winner, with 34% of results. Runner-up with 26% was Megan Whalen Turner’s The Thief, so we’ve got a lot readers (myself included!) eager for the May release of the 5th book set in The Thief‘s world, Thick as Thieves. Fully 21% of you called foul on the feasibility of accurately listing and/or choosing actual favorites from the decade of YA fantasy that helped to provide the fertile ground from which grows the vivid genre (and genre-bending) work we enjoy in today’s YA. The next 3 results were quite close, with Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials at 7%, Garth Nix’s Abhorsen trilogy at 6%, and Neil Gaiman’s Stardust at 5%. 2% of us chose Diana Wynne Jones’ Dark Lord of Derlock.  Continue reading Monthly Monday Poll: April 2017 – 1999 Was An Awesome Year for YA

Monthly Monday Poll: November Edition

Monday Poll @ YALSA's The Hub

Hello, Hub readers!

This month we’re asking which books from the #yalsa16 Symposium’s awesome group of Book Blitz titles you’re hoping to read next. It’s a bigger group of options than our usual slate, so choose up to 5, and be sure to peruse the whole list for some fantastic reads from wonderful authors!

For more coverage of YALSA’s 2016 Young Adult Services Symposium, stayed tuned for some highlights up soon here at The Hub, and be sure to peruse #yalsa16 on Twitter; there were lots of folks tweeting out great tips and takeaways.

Update from last month’s poll: a full 73% of us are primarily reading library or personal copies of books that are officially published and out in the world, and the other 27% of us are reading a more even mix of advance/review copies and already-published titles. Literally not even one respondent was reading a majority of advance titles, and I have to say I think that says something *really* impressive about how fast y’all read once a book is out in the world!

Which Symposium-featured title are YOU excited check out? Pick up to 5!
