Award-Winning Teen Books

YALSA Teen Book Finder

I’ve discussed a couple of different ways to get book recommendations in the past, from listening to podcasts to reading reviews, blogs, and websites.  So I thought that it was time to visit the idea of teen book awards, both long-standing awards that have been around for decades as well as awards that have only been around for a few years.  Here are the awards and other resources that I mentioned in this episode:

ALA Book, Print, and Media Awards
Newbery Medal and Honor Books
Michael L. Printz Winners and Honor Books
The Alex Awards
The Coretta Scott King Book Awards
The YALSA Award For Excellence in Nonfiction
YALSA’s Teen Bookfinder app
The Edgar Awards (mysteries)
The Bram Stoker Award (horror)
The Nebula Awards (fantasy & science fiction)
