For the past month or so I have been working on an idea to poll people from all different walks of literary life for their top 100 YA titles.
What prompted this idea?
A lovely lady (and NY librarian), Elizabeth Bird from the School Library Journal, who in the past two years has conducted a Top 100 Picture Books poll and is just winding up the Top 100 Middle Grade Novels poll at the moment. As I blog about YA, I thought I would take up the mantle, ask Elizabeth's permission to poach her idea (and method) and come up with a YA list.
I have invited librarians, teachers, publishing personnel, bloggers, authors and readers to take part in this poll. I instructed these people that they could invite others to take part...now I am breaking it wide open. Barely two days in and the votes are already extremely varied and this is exciting me.
Ask yourself...what are your top 10 favourite YA titles of all time? Take part in this poll by April 30 and we'll see what we, as a community, think.
A quick reminder that you can only vote once.
