Post Date:11/07/2019 8:00 AM

Each year the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) hosts the Teens' Top Ten, a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups in fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on YALSA website, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles. The 2019 winners are below.

Find more recommended reads in YALSA's Teen Book Finder Database, which is a one-stop shop for finding selected lists and award winners. Users can search this free resource by award, list name, year, author, genre, and more.
