ALA Teens' Top 10 Titles of 2014

Teens have spoken!

ALA Teens' Top 10 Titles were announced on October 20th!

(And don't worry Romance, Fantasy, Mystery, Chicklit and Middlegrade lovers! We'll be keeping up with the 2014 favorites for all of these genres as they come out. Can't believe we're already getting to that time of year. AAAH!)

So, which Teen titles were interest piquing, pillow clutching, funny bone tickling, and just generally jump out of the chair worthy for young readers this year?

  1. "Eleanor & Park" by Rainbow Rowell (Macmillan/St. Martin's Griffin)
  2. "Splintered" by A.G. Howard (ABRAMS/Amulet Books)
  3. "The Rithmatist" by Brandon Sanderson (Tor Teen)
  4. "The 5th Wave" by Rick Yancey (Penguin/Putnam Juvenile) 
  5. "Monument 14: Sky on Fire" by Emmy Laybourne (Macmillan/Feiwel & Friends)
  6. "Earth Girl" by Janet Edwards (Prometheus Books /Pyr)
  7. "The Testing" by Joelle Charbonneau (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt)
  8. "Steelheart" by Brandon Sanderson (Random House/Delacorte Press)
  9. "Siege and Storm" by Leigh Bardugo (Macmillan/Henry Holt Books for Young Readers)
  10. "The Eye of Minds" by James Dashner (Random House/Delacorte Press)
I've personally been really itching to read "Eleanore and Park" followed by "Splintered". Other than that, it's the first time I've ever even heard of the majority of these works!

What do you think? Have you read any of these tantalizing titles? Which book do you think is missing from this line up?

Fantastic Giveaways and Challenges!
