Teen Books

These sites are both great ways to combine reading with social media! Connect with friends and other readers, build bookshelves of books you’ve read, books you’re currently reading, and books that you want to read. There are also quizzes and opportunities to interact with the authors of your favorite books!

Epic Reads
Great site for finding your next YA book, finding info about authors, taking part in blogs and forums, watching videos, and taking polls/quizzes on your favorite books

YA Books Central (YABC)
YABC was founded in 1998 by Kimberly Pauley. It has evolved into one of the largest sites targeted towards tween and teen readers. You can find book reviews by readers and staff reviewers, author interviews & bios, chapter excerpts, exciting giveaways, and much more.

What Should I Read Next?
Enter a book you like and the site will analyze its database of real readers’ favorite books (more than 80,000 different titles so far, and more than a million reader recommendations) to provide book recommendations and suggestions for what to read next.

Teens’ Top Ten (Young Adult Library Services Association)
The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year!

Reading Rants
This site was created in 1998 by a Teen Librarian, Jennifer Hubert, who says that Reading Rants is “a group of booklists for those of you teens out there who need a good read, but are wondering if there’s life after Judy Blume and Brian Jacques.”

Harper Teen
From topical contemporary novels to lighthearted series books, from award-winning literary tales to smart and sassy beach reads, HarperTeen is the place to find compelling voices that get to the heart of what it means to be a teen.

The YA Shelf
A community of YA authors, readers and bibliophiles searching for the best young adult reads!

No Flying No Tights
A page devoted to graphic novel reviews specifically for those who read them the most — mainly teens — and for those who might be involved in distributing them to teens — namely teachers, librarians, and parents.
