The American Library Association has released its annual Top Ten Books for Teens.
Not surprisingly, Stephanie Meyer's book, New Moon, is at the top of the list. I've been trying to read her first book, Twilight, but students keep checking it out! Hopefully we'll have the third book, Eclipse, by the time I've finished the first two. This series chronicles the relationship between Bella and Edward. Bella is a normal teenage girl who moves to Washington state to live with her father and builds a relationship with a very unusual young man who is a...., well, let's just say he isn't human. (If you don't already know, you'll have to find out yourself.)
No. 2 on the list is another very popular title, Just Listen, by Sarah Dessen. We have this book and several others by her. I haven't read any of her books yet but she is on my daughter's favorite authors list.
If you are interested in any other titles on the ALA list, we currently have Life As We Knew It, River Secrets, and Road of the Dead. We will probably order the other books on the list but it will take a while until we get them.
It's always a problem of too many books and not enough time. Unfortunately, authors keep writing and I keep adding more titles to my list of want-to-reads so I may never finish reading them all.
