Persnickety Snark, an Australian YA review blogger, recently conducted a thorough poll of her readers and fellow bloggers and such, asking them what their favourite YA books were. She’s carefully collated the results, and counted down the results in a Top 100 for 2010. Number 1 is, interestingly, The Hunger Games, with the first in the Harry Potter series coming in second. I’ll summaries the top 10 for you here, so you could have a browse through the results and read stuff you like the look of (if you haven’t already).
- The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
- Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, J K Rowling
- To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee
- Speak, Laurie Halse Anderson
- Northern Lights, Philip Pullman
- The Truth About Forever, Sarah Dessen
- The Book Thief, Markus Zusak
- The Outsiders, S E Hinton
- Twilight, Stephenie Meyer
- This Lullaby, Sarah Dessen
It looks a pretty good list (especially if you love Sarah Dessen).
