npr’s top 100 teen books
posted by soe 2:17 am

As I mentioned last week, NPR recently polled its audience for their favorite YA books. This week they released their final list. As always when the public is allowed to vote on a list like this, publication proximity tends to bump up a bunch of books that will fade down or off the list in a few years’ time.

I have bolded those novels I’ve read (I’m bolding series, even if I’ve only finished one book of it):

1. Harry Potter (series), by J.K. Rowling

2. The Hunger Games (series), by Suzanne Collins

3. To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee

4. The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green

5. The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien

6. The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D. Salinger

7. The Lord of the Rings (series), by J.R.R. Tolkien

8. Fahrenheit 451, by Ray Bradbury

9. Looking for Alaska, by John Green

10. The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
