Teen Reading Lists

An online survey conducted by SmartGirl.com and the Young Adult Library Services Association found that 55 percent of teens strongly agreed that they like to read for pleasure. Fifty-six percent said they consider themselves advanced readers. Sixty percent of the survey respondents (962 young men and women between the ages of 11 and 18) said they would read more if they knew of more good books to read.

So set aside some time and get out your library card! We've rounded up some of the best sources for young adult reading lists below:

  • Winning Titles
    The Young Adult Library Services Association points out award-winners and quick picks for reluctant readers.

  • Teens' Top 10
    In 2005, a task force of the Young Adult Library Services Association identified teens' favorites. Ann Brashares' "Girls In Pants: The Third Summer of the Sisterhood" topped the list, followed by "The Truth About Forever" by Sarah Dessen.

  • TeenReads.com
    Offers extensive book, author and general information for teen readers in a fun format.

  • Reading Rants: Out of the Ordinary Teen Book Lists
    Presents books with a twist. Quirky book lists include Teen Tearjerkers, Boy Meets Book and Graphic Fantastic.




  • St.Charles Public Library
    Browse reading lists by theme, from "Scary Stories" to "On the Road Again."

  • Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh
    Points out biographies that are fun to read, books about siblings, fiction written in diary form, mysteries and more.
