Where Teens Choose the Winners!

The 2008 Teens’ Top Ten

The vote is in! More than 8,000 teens voted on this year’s winners. The 2008 Teens’ Top Ten is:

  1. Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
  2. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling
  3. Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
  4. Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead
  5. Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson
  6. City of Bones by Cassandra Clare
  7. The Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray
  8. Extras by Scott Westerfeld
  9. Before I Die by Jenny Downham
  10. Twisted by Laurie Halse Anderson

Above is from ALA | Teens’ Top Ten site.  I think it’s very telling that Stephenie Meyer’s 3rd book won over the last Harry Potter book.  Do you agree with these votes?

I haven’t read Cassandra Clare’s books yet, and I want to get Anderson’s Twisted in which the main character writes–“Everybody told me how to be a man, but no one told me how.”  I heard it was a pretty intriguing story about how bad things happen to decent people.  If I had a nickel for every time that happens, I’d be a rich gal indeed!   But I heard this one is a powerful and dark story that needs to be read.
