Finding top teen books – impossible?

We’re making some updates soon at Top Teen Books, so come back soon!

Having a teenager who says things like “I don’t read books” or “No way am I going to read that” makes choosing the top teen books a bit difficult.  So in this site I decided to look at what others have been saying everywhere and gather together videos and comments and a bunch of random stuff about young adult books to keep me (and you) interested.

Soon we’re going to start asking you to submit articles, reviews and pointers to to make this more than just a random collection.   If you’re interested, join our mailing list and you will be the first to know when we get started:

Needless to say, we will never sell, rent or use your details in any way other than to provide information to you that you have requested.

Sometimes, we get a book that our teen daughter just starts reading and even finishes. Well, we’ll link to those here and hopefully give you links to the cheapest options so you don’t have to search too hard for the teenaged readers in your life.

Happy reading!

The Hunger Games (fan) trailer

WATCH IN HQ!! This is just a little fan-made trailer based on the book The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It’s such an amazing book, and I thought it would be awesome to make a trailer for it. If you haven’t read it before, I highly recommend it! I’m not really used to making trailers, so this project was a bit difficult (but really fun) to do. Hope you like it! Main Characters: Katniss Everdeen- Anna Popplewell Peeta Mellark- William Moseley (The other faces featured in this trailer represent minor roles of the other tributes in the Hunger Games.) Clips used: Prince Caspian Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince official trailers twilight Program used: Sony Vegas Platinum 9.0 All movie clips and music belong to their respective owners. Absolutely nothing is mine, with the exception of the video editing.

What are some Tear-jerking Teen Related Books?

I just read the book "The Outsiders" and I cry soo much.
Yet the whole book was not crying.
I laughed.
I related.
It was an amazing teen age story that was written for the 60′s yet related so much to the teenage life today.

I want to know books like "The Outsiders" That give you the same amount of feel and compassion.

In your respected opinion, what are the best books of this century? Limited to teen fiction only.?

In your respected opinion, what are the best books of this century? This question is limited to teen fiction only. And please, I’m begging you… refrain from using any books from the Twilight saga. I already know how fabulous they are. A good start would be something like Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli. Your responses are appreciated greatly.
