Top 10 Teen Reads

I'm just checking out some sites on the internet when I came across this list- kind of interesting. How many of the top 10 teen reads have you read? Me? I've only read two- so I can see I am going to be placing a call to Titles today to order some other books.

2009 Teens' Top Ten

More than 11,000 teen voters chose Paper Towns as their favorite book in the 2009 Teens' Top Ten! The online poll took place from Aug. 24 through Sept. 18, with the winners announced during Teen Read Week by WWE Divas Brie Bella and Nikki Bella, with a special appearance by John Green. See the video.

  1. oh this makes me feel so out of touch!!! i've heard of four of these titles, and read one!!! i've got to quit my day job so i can truly address the real quality teen lit that's out there!!! steven

  2. I think we are doing OK- we are pretty up on this stuff ourselves!

  3. I just found your site, via A Year of Reading. I love it! I think James Dashner said he plans on The Maze Runner being a 5 book series, which is fine by me - I absolutely loved it. I'm currently reading book two of his 13th Reality series.
    Thanks for the great content - I'll be back. Come visit me, too. :)
