You might find yourself having to read an award winning book for school at some time, so we thought we’d help out a bit and produce a list of award winning books (with one or two critically acclaimed almost-award-winning books), most of which (but not all) are in the Young Adults collection.

If you’re still on the lookout after browsing through here then have a look at this post, which has links to different award websites. Also, don’t forget the Classic Novels booklist.
