January is awards-season in the library world.  Earlier this week, librarians gathered in Boston to select award-winners in several categories for young adults.

They also selected an annual Best Books for Young Adults (BBYA) list, with input from teen readers.  Here are the top ten books from that list:

Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan

The Orange Houses by Paul Griffin

The Great Wide Sea by M.H. Herlong

The Reformed Vampire Support Group by Catherine Jinks

Alligator Bayou by Donna Jo Napoli

Stitches: A Memoir by David Small

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco X. Stork

Lips Touch: Three Times by Laini Taylor

Written in Bone: Buried Lives of Jamestown and Colonial Maryland by Sally M. Walker

Visit the YALSA website to see the full BBYA list.

About Donna B

Hi! My main hangout in the Library is the Teen Underground, but you'll find me wandering all over the building. Originally from Northeast Iowa, I've lived in the Chicago area long enough to boo the Packers; but not long enough to pick a side in the Sox-Vs-Cubs civil dispute. I geek out on ginger ale and black licorice, Pottermore sorted me into Slytherin, and if I were a dog I'd be a shiba inu.
