Teen Favorites – Part 2


This is part two of a short series that shares teen favorite reads. To be honest, with the exception of my daughter, I don’t regularly know what teens are reading, so it’s nice to get a glimpse here. Most of the buzz I get about MG and YA fiction come from my writer friends and blogs by writers/readers/editors. It’s nice to know that our favorites aren’t too different from teen favorites! Good stories, great characters, solid writing are all things that both adults and teens crave in a book!

Laura, age 12

Favorite book read recently, and why: Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Cabin Fever by Jeff Kinney

Because it was funny and relaxing to read.

Angel, age 18

Favorite book from childhood, and why: Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss

I think I liked it alot because I thought Horton was adorable and I had a fascination with all animals at the time. The rhymes didn’t hurt either.

Dawn, age 17

Favorite book of the year, and why: The Power of Six by Pittacus Lore

It is the sequel to I am Number Four and it was sooo much better than the first one. It was full of action and suspense and had more details into the love interests of the character. The plot was really original and answered a bunch of unanswered questions, and thats what made me love it. Can’t wait for the next one!

Caitlin, age 16

Favorite book of the year, and why: Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

A great ending to the trilogy. A fast-paced plot with nail biting excitement. You never want to put the story down, and that goes for the whole series.
