About Teen Top Ten


"The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online between August 15-October 12 here on the Teens' Top Ten site. The winners will be announced the following week after.

Meet the 2019 - 2020 Teens' Top Ten book groups, who will choose the nominees for the next two years. Learn more about how you can apply to participate in the Teens' Top Ten book groups hereLearn more about how you can apply to participate in the Teens' Top Ten book groups here.  Applications for the next set of TTT groups will open in August 2020!
