I’m pleased to bring back Teen Favorites just in time for holiday shopping! I’m including younger readers in this year’s survey. If you, your child, or grandchild would like to chime in, please do so in the comments. I’ll keep this series running for the next couple of weeks. Thanks to all the teen/kid book lovers who participated! The question was: What was the best book you read this year and why?
Laura, age 13:
Fever by Laurie Halse Anderson
Max, age 3:
Everything Goes Up In The Air by Brian Biggs
Emily O., age 17:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
Why is this your favorite book of the year? It might just be because it’s the most recent book I’ve read. but it really draws you in, and doesn’t have a really depressing ending like a lot of other books.
Ben, age 18:
Life of Pi by Yann Martel
Jasmine, age 17:
Hannibal by Thomas Harris
Abby, age 18:
The Thieves of Darkness by Richard Doetsch
Meg, age 13:
Lessons From A Dead Girl by Jo Knowles
Stayed tuned for more teen and kid favorites! And please share yours in the comments. Happy reading and happy shopping!
