Announcing YALSA’s 2019 Selected Lists/A 2020 Update

Our 2019 Amazing Audiobooks, Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers, Great Graphic Novels for Teens, and Best Fiction for Young Adults lists are now completed! (BFYA will announce their top ten after the teen feedback session at ALA Midwinter in Seattle.) Also, if you’re interested in titles from past lists, please check out our Teen Bookfinder App! Check out the lists now as PDFs below or listed individually on the YALSA site.

Want to read more about these titles? Each team’s blog posts are available on the Hub! Check out the links at the top of the page to go to specific posts or search the tags #AA2019, #BFYA2019, #QP2019, or #GGN2019.

Looking forward, the 2020 Selected Lists teams have started working! In the coming weeks, the pages on the Hub will be updated to reflect the new teams, including the new field nomination forms (located in the sidebar on this site), if you’d like to suggest a title to those teams. Regular blog posts for #QP2020, #AA2020, #GGN2020, and #BFYA2020 will begin running the first week of March.

What do you think? What are your favorite titles on the lists?

Also, now that the lists are out and awards will be announced in the next few weeks at Midwinter, you know what that means…

…The 2019 Hub Reading Challenge. Coming soon.
