I’m fascinated by list crossover. The ones I usually look for are the ones that are on both the YALSA’s Best Fiction for Young Adults (“both good quality literature and appealing reading for teens”) and YALSA’s Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers (“titles aimed at encouraging reading among teens who dislike to read or whatever reason”). Good quality literature, appealing, and encouraging reading? Awesome!
I also take a look at what appears on these lists as well as ALSC’s Notable Children’s Books (“the best of the best in children’s books”); the titles that are honored both by YALSA and ALSC are those that fall in the overlap between the two, or books aimed at readers ages 12 to 14.
I’m also going to note the Printz and Newbery Award and Honor books; and the Morris and the Excellence in Nonfiction for Young Adults Awards and Finalists, as well as that nominated list; and the Sibert Award and Honor Books. Additional criteria are at the websites for the lists.
If I’ve missed something, let me know. Because these lists use different eligibility years, it gets a bit tricky: a few titles from last year’s lists also appeared on this year’s lists. Also? Different lists are ordered differently (e.g., author versus title, nonfiction may not always be in a different section).
