books for teensEver since I wrote Top 20 Classic Books for Teenagers back in June, I have seen that there is an interest in finding books for teens. That post gets more hits from search engines than almost any other I’ve written (except for The Secret Life of the American Teenager believe it or not). If teens or their parents are looking for classic books, they might also be looking for newer books. I found some great websites that will make finding teen books both easy and fun.

teenreads.com – This website has everything. It is broken down into so many sections, you can really narrow down your the area that you browse through. They have sections for Authors, Reviews, Cool & New, New in Paperback, Podcasts/Videos, Coming Soon, Features, Series, Ultimate Reading List, Book Clubs, Books into Movies, Newsletter and Search. On the Home Page, featured items from each category are shown. There are also polls, links to award winners and interviews with authors.

TeensReadToo.com – This website is on a much smaller scale. However, it is different. There are pictures of all of the books that they have reviewed. If you click on the book you will be taken to a page with a great deal more information about the book, including other reviews. They also have author interviews, monthly contests, an ask the librarian page, an ask the screenwriter page, and a page with links to homework help websites and crisis hotlines.

Reading Rants? Out of the Ordianry Teen Booklists! – This website which has been around since 1998 is now in blog format. Teens can now respond to the reviews in each blog post. The sidebar has a list of the top ten books for each of the past six years. The discussion format is nice, but to see reviews of many books you would have to go through the archives. The other sites are better if you are looking for a book for right now. This blog is something that is better to subscribe to and then read regularly for books for the future.

If you are looking for other book websites for teens, the sidebar in the Reading Rants blog has a long list of Book Review Websites & Blogs for Teens.
