YALSA Book Awards & Lists

Find great lists of recommended reading for your teen from our book awards and book lists. Some examples of the book awards and lists are:

Teens' Top Ten

The Teens' Top Ten (TTT) is a "teen choice" list, where teens choose their favorite books of the previous year! Encourage your teens to read the nominees from April to August so they can vote for their favorites at the end of summer!


Nominations are posted  online on Celebrate Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week, which is April 16th, 2015. Readers ages twelve to eighteen can vote online for their favorites starting in August.  The 10 titles with the most votes become the TTT, and are announced during Teen Read Week, the third week of October.  To access a free toolkit to help you connect your teens with the TTT, and to view the nominations visit www.ala.org/teenstopten.
