We are so happy to announce that the Delirium series and Before I Fall both made NPR’s top 100 YA novels list!! As we told you earlier, there were 235 novels up for the final 100 and thanks to all who voted Lauren Oliver made the list twice, and VERY deservedly so! Just check out how many people did end up voting, as you can see below over 75,000! Such a spectacular turn out!
It’s almost a cliche at this point to say that teen fiction isn’t just for teens anymore. Just last year, the Association of American Publishers ranked Children’s/Young Adult books as the single fastest-growing publishing category.
Which is why we were only a little surprised to see the tremendous response that came in for this summer’s Best-Ever Teen Fiction poll. A whopping 75,220 of you voted for your favorite young adult novels, blasting past the total for last year’s science fiction and fantasy poll at, dare we say it, warp speed.
Here is Lauren’s incredibly gracious tweet thanking all who voted.
Wow! I can't believe I made it on to the list TWICE! So happy and grateful! Thank you so much everyone who voted! npr.org/2012/08/07/157…—
