Best of the year

It's December! And like the holiday songs filling the airwaves, this month marks the tradition of book journals and book sellers making their annual best books of the year list. Today, I'm highlighting's Top 10 Teen Books. This list is made from the editorial staff at Amazon--not based on sales, which is why I'm including into my lists of best books list. Without further ado--here is the list!

Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor
Delirium by Lauren Oliver
Exposed by Kimberly Marcus
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys
The Running Dream by Wendelin Van Draanen
Divergent by Veronica Roth
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater
You Against Me by Jenny Downham
Michael Vey: The Prisoner of Cell 25 by Richard Paul Evans

Of these ten titles--three of them have been optioned for movie rights in the past month. What do you think of the list? Do you agree with the staff of Amazon?

Until next time!
