Top Ten Kids/Teens Books Read in 2009


2009 was a great reading year - so many wonderful books for kids, teens, and young adults! It was hard to narrow my favorites down to the Top Ten. I suppose I cheated a little by including several multiple books in a series! Anyway, here are the Top Ten Kids/Teens Books I Read in 2009 (in no particular order):

  1. Wake and Fade by Lisa McMann
  2. Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor
  3. Alabama Moon by Watt Key
  4. Skin Hunger and Sacred Scars (The Resurrection of Magic series) by Kathleen Duey
  5. The Higher Power of Lucky and Lucky Breaks by Susan Patron
  6. The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins
  7. Pendragon series (I read books 6, 7, and 8 this year!) by D.J. MacHale
  8. Prism by Faye and Aliza Kellerman
  9. Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
  10. The Cronus Chronicles by Anne Ursu
What were your favorite kids/teen/YA books read in 2009?

I don't read a lot of YA, but loved The Hunger Games and Catching Fire! They'd be on my top 10 as well!

I loved The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, Beautiful Creatures and Life As We Knew It and The Dead and the Gone. Those are the ones that spring to mind first.

I am definitely in agreement with Huger Games and Catching Fire. One of my all time favorite reads this year was Unwind by Neal Shulsterman. I also loved IQ Book One: Independence Hall by Roland Smith. Some of those you listed are not familar, so I will definitely have to check them out.
