Amazon.com just released their 2011 Best Books of the Year So Far for teens. Do you agree with them? Check it out!On the list is Delerium by Lauren Oliver, which I reviewed back in February.
You can find all these books (and audiobooks for a few of them) in the teen section at the library!
The nominees for the 2012 Garden State Teen Book Awards are here! Each year, New Jersey teens vote for their favorite books in three categories.
The ballot lists twenty nominees for each category, based on teen appeal and quality of writing. Follow the links to see the nominees in each category and to place your vote (if you are ready!) Fiction- Grades 6-8 Fiction- Grades 7-12 Nonfiction- Grades 6-12
Voting will run through January 7, 2012 so you have plenty of time to read a few and vote for your favorite! Paper ballots can be picked up at the library and all the books will be on display until voting ends. I'll be featuring some of the nominated books here in the future using the tag "GSTBA" so check back later!
