Selected Lists

Each year, YALSA’s Selected Lists Teams receive nominations, read and evaluate nominated titles,  provide featured reviews, and select and annotate an annual list of notable titles significant to young adults from those released in the past year or two, depending on format. The purpose of the annual list it to provide librarians and library workers with a resource for collection development and reader’s advisory purposes.

Please click the links below to get more information about each specific list, including nominees, previous years’ lists, and blogging teams. Also, be sure to use YALSA’s Teen Book Finder App & Database to learn more about previous selections.
