Happy Monday! I declare today The Day of Lists. Seriously. I will begin with a list of the Teens’ Top Ten 2012 winner.
Here’s the deal with the TTT, straight from the YALSA website
The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on Support Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online in August and September.”
1. Divergent by Veronica Roth
2. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
3. Legend by Marie Lu
4. Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
5. What Happened to Goodbye by Sarah Dessen
6. Across the Universe by Beth Revis
7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer
8. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
9. Where She Went by Gayle Forman
10. Abandon by Meg Cabot
What a great list, right? I need to get busy because I have only read half the books on the list (1, 2, 3, 7, & 8)! Sorry, no review for TFIOS. I just don’t have it in me. I couldn’t get into Miss Peregrine, I am considering giving Scorpio Races a try, I own Across the Universe (so, someday!), I haven’t read much Sarah Dessen (I should remedy that), and I am not sure why I missed Abandon!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
Pre-Read-a-thon: Wilder Life by Wendy McClure, Walking Dead vol. 15 by Robert Kirkman, and Rebel Heart by Moira Young. Lots of love for each one!
I also finished six other books during the read-a-thon. Did you miss those posts? Here is my event wrap up.
Still working on:
Started: Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters by Meredith Zeitlin
Neglecting: At Somerton: Cinders and Sapphires by Leila Rasheed
Want to get to this week: Unwind by Neil Shusterman
I am most excited to be back to reading A Feast For Crows. My goal is to finish that any anything else will just be a bonus. What are you working on this week?
