About the Ultimate Reading List on TeenReads.com

One of our goals each month is to inspire you to read — and to keep reading. We have found that required reading lists for school — especially summer reading lists — are not exactly inspiring. Thus we have created what we think is the Ultimate Teen Reading List — over 400 titles that we believe are perfect choices for reading and discussing. Our dream is that schools will use this list to help them make their own for summer reading or, even better, suggest that students just read what they want from this list.

How did we create our list? We compiled entries from Teenreads.com readers who weighed in with their selections, and we also asked our staffers for suggestions. Titles range from young adult books to adult books that we think would be enjoyed by teens. As part of our commitment to staying current and keeping on top of the latest trends, we overhauled the entire list in February 2011 and February 2012. Now, another year later, we’ve updated the feature with books that have released in the past year. They include a mixture of fiction and nonfiction, plus graphic novels and manga titles. And check out our brand new genre lists to help you find the book you’re craving!

Thanks to all who helped launch this project in 2006, and have continued to participate in it, for spurring a lot of important conversation about books.
