Books and Novels for Teens and Young Adult Readers, Ages 12+
Discover the best books and novels for young adult readers and teens through our curated collection of books.
Many adults wonder if teens actually read for fun anymore, others say, thanks to smartphones, they are reading more than ever … just not books. Between homework and social lives, sports and activities, maybe even a job, time is certainly beginning to get stretched thinly for teens (or young adults, if you prefer). Here at The Children’s Book Review, even if, statistically speaking, it’s true, we are not giving in to the idea that teens don’t like to read for pleasure. So … calling all young adults! We’re ready to dazzle you with the young adult book picks that we carefully select to feature from the 4,800+ books published for teens each year. You’ll find books in the following subjects: Fantasy: Supernatural Fiction, Myths & Legends, Romance, Memoirs, and Non-Fiction.
Here are a few young adult book reviews and lists to get you started:
