October = Teen Read Month

I love that YALSA devotes an entire month to Teen Reading – it offers a great opportunity for going to schools and discussing book titles as well as some great homework help services offered by libraries (like Brainfuse’s daily one-on-one tutoring assistance as well as their Writing Lab, where students can do anything from getting help in organizing their paper to a complete review).

Because October was so busy, I really fell by the wayside with posting book reviews. I’m hoping to remedy that during November by posting a book review every couple of days.

If you’re curious about the Top Teen Reads for 2013, as decided by teens, the winners are:

  1. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (Disney/Hyperion)
  2. The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen (Scholastic/Scholastic Press)
  3. Insurgent by Veronica Roth (Harper Collins/Katherine Tegen Books)
  4. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry (Harlequin Teen)
  5. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole (Simon & Schuster)
  6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater (Scholastic/Scholastic Press)
  7. Crewel by Gennifer Albin (Macmillan/Farrar Straus Giroux)
  8. Every Day by David Levithan (Random House/Alfred A. Knopf)
  9. Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross (Egmont)
  10. Butter by Erin Jade Lange (Bloomsbury)

Two authors were also on the 2012 winner’s list: Maggie Stiefvater (Scorpio Races) and Veronica Roth (Divergent).
