Teens Choose Their Favorite Books

Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare takes the top spot in teen books



Published:

Teen readers across the country chose “Clockwork Angel” by Cassandra Clare as their favorite book in the annual Teens’ Top Ten vote, sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association (ALA). Teens cast nearly 10,000 votes online between Aug. 15 and Sept. 15, with the official list announcement made today (October 16, 2011).

The 2011 Teens’ Top Ten Books:

  1. "Clockwork Angel" by Cassandra Clare (Simon & Schuster)
  2. "Mockingjay" by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic)
  3. "Crescendo" by Becca Fitzpatrick (Simon & Schuster)
  4. "I Am Number Four" by Pittacus Lore (HarperCollins)
  5. "The Iron King" by Julie Kagawa (Harlequin)
  6. "Matched" by Ally Condie (Penguin)
  7. "Angel: A Maximum Ride Novel" by James Patterson (Little, Brown & Company)
  8. "Paranormalcy" by Kiersten White (HarperCollins)
  9. "Before I Fall" by Lauren Oliver (HarperCollins)
  10. "Nightshade" by Andrea Cremer (Penguin)

The Teens’ Top Ten is a booklist created entirely by and for teens as part of YALSA’s Teens’ Top Ten Project, which facilitates access to advance copies of young adult books to national teen book discussion groups. These groups evaluated books published between January 2010 through April 2011 and then created a list of 25 nominations. Teen voters across the country then cast ballots for their three favorites, creating the 2011 Teens’ Top Ten. Final nominations for the 2012 Teens’ Top Ten vote will be posted on Support Teen Literature Day, April 19 at www.ala.org/teenstopten.
