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!
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!
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.”
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.
This site includes lots of materials such as guy-friendly nonfiction, humor, comics, graphic novels, action-adventure, magazines, websites, audiobooks, and newspapers.
