Teens’ Top Ten

Grab your library cards and get ready to place some holds: it’s time! Time for the announcement of the 2012 Teens’ Top Ten!

Each year, nominees for the Top Ten are chosen by specially elected teen advisory boards and groups in libraries across the country. From the list of nominees, teens everywhere vote for the top ten. It’s a list of the best teen books, chosen entirely by YOU!

Okay, okay, enough blabbing about details. Get to the list already!

Ahem, without further ado, this year’s winners are…

10. Abandon by Meg Cabot

9. Where She Went by Gayle Forman

8. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer

6. Across the Universe by Beth Revis

5. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen

4. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

3. Legend by Marie Lu

2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

And the Number One Book of 2012 is (insert drum roll here)…

1. Divergent by Veronica Roth

The winners range from the realistic fiction of John Green and Sarah Dessen, to the re-imagined fairy tale, Cinder, to post-apocalyptic dystopian titles like Divergent and The Scorpio Races, to a book originally written for adults but completely adopted by teens everywhere, Ransom Riggs’ Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, proving that teens have diverse interests and that YA lit is where it’s at!
