It’s Best Books season again, and we will be tracking the lists over the next few weeks to see which titles have been selected as exemplary books for teens and young adults!
My goal — 30 Best Books lists from diverse and reputable sources across media — journals, magazines, newspapers, libraries, blogs, book sites, etc. Challenge: accepted!
Over the holiday break I will be aggregating them into my final best books lists, similar to this post from December 2015: Best YA Books of 2015.
