Teens' Top Ten

8,000 teens voted on their top ten books.  Here’s the list:

  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

The first two aren’t surprising.  I thought Diary of a Wimpy Kid was for a younger audience but it is extremely popular so I guess I shouldn’t be too shocked to see it on the list.  I am happy to see Vampire Academy so high on the list.  It is my absolute favorite teen vampire series but I wasn’t sure it was as popular as some of the others that I don’t like as much, for example, the House of Night series.  I am also happy to see Before I Die on the list.  I, sadly, have not read it yet but I’ve heard great things about it.
