2022 YALSA Teens’ Top Ten Titles Announced

The Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA), a division of the American Library Association, has officially announced the 2022 Teen’s Top Ten winners.

The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups from sixteen school and public libraries around the country selected by YALSA to participate.

The complete list is here.

Two of this year’s winners are works of genre interest.

  • All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody and Christine Herman (Tor Teen)
    Every generation, seven families select a champion to compete in a tournament to the death for control of high magick–the most powerful resource in the world–but this year, a salacious tell-all book draws reporters, tourists, and government agents to Ilvernath to watch the bloody curse unfold and some of the champions are determined to thwart their destinies and rewrite their stories.
  • Rule of Wolves by Leigh Bardugo (Imprint)
    The wolves are circling and a young king will face his greatest challenge in the explosive finale of the instant #1 New York Times–bestselling King of Scars Duology.
