Mondays with Megan and Teen Read Week

Happy Teen Read Week! This year’s theme is Books With Beat @Your Library. My first thought was books about music. There are quite a few teen books about music. If you are interested in reading a Book With Beat here are just a few to get you started:

1. Jo-Jo and The Fiendish Lot by Andrew Aueson
2. Born to Rock by Gordon Korman
3. Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn
4. Struts and Frets by Jon Skovron
5. Debbie Harry Sings in French by Meagan Brothers
6. Beige by Cecil Castelucci
7. Fat Kid Rules the World by K.L. Going
8. Notes From the Midnight Driver by Jordan Sonnenblick

As promised, this year’s Teens’ Top Ten were announced. Did you vote? Did your favorite make the list this year? Here is the list of this year’s winners:

  1. Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  2. City of Glass by Cassandra Clare
  3. Heist Society by Ally Carter
  4. Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater
  5. Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick
  6. Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
  7. Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen
  8. If I Stay by Gayle Forman
  9. Fire by Kristin Cashore
  10. Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

I would agree with most of these selections (regular readers may be aware that I am still holding a grudge against Shiver and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future…). Regardless of my person feelings, this is a great list and I highly recommend you check these books out if you haven’t already.

It’s Teen Read Week! Read for the fun of it! Check out a Book With Beat or a Teens’ Top Ten while I think of another way to interpret the theme.

Happy Reading!
