NPR National Public Raido Best Ever Teen Top 100

Here is an interesting article from Shelf Awareness. I am very pleased by the results of the NPR poll. There are so many wonderful books that I adore that made the list. I was not surprised that John Green made the list 5 times! And also not surprising is, well, .. if Cassandra Clare wrote it ... it's on the top 100, same with Richelle Mead! I have had a bit of fun marking some of my favorites. I also went a head and posted the complete 235 finalist. It is such a impressive list. I hope you take the time and look at it. I have read a lot of them, and have more than I like to admit in my TBR pile, but more interesting to me are the ones that I have not heard of or just never considered reading.

When I was reading both lists I was a bit surprised that one of my favorite series was nowhere to be found. There are even few I am surprised to see on the list at all, but that is what is so much fun getting to vote, everyone gets to have their opinion. :O)

YA Rules: NPR's 'Best-Ever Teen Fiction' Poll <==click for original article

Readers are passionate about their favorite books. More than 75,000 people voted in NPR's Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll, and while it was "no surprise to see Harry Potter and the Hunger Games trilogy on top, this year's list also highlights some writers we weren't as familiar with. For example, John Green, author of the 2012 hit The Fault in Our Stars, appears five times in the top 100," NPR Books noted. The list was compiled from more than 1,200 nominations, which were whittled down to 235 finalists.

In an Atlantic magazine essay headlined "Why Do Female Authors Dominate Young-Adult Fiction?" Meghan Lewit observed: "Of those 235 titles, 147 (or 63%) were written by women--a parity that would seem like a minor miracle in some other genres. Female authors took the top three slots, and an approximately equal share of the top 100. As a comparison, you'd have to scroll all the way to number 20 on last summer's Top 100 Science-Fiction and Fantasy list to find a woman's name (Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley)."
