Two months ago we posted our list of the Most Popular Book Club books, compiled from submissions from our 3,000 bibliomaniacs, and then last month published the Top Underrated Book Club books. You may have noticed a lack of Young Adult titles on those lists, and for good reason — we were saving them for this month’s list:
(1) The Fault in our Stars by John Green; (2) Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli; (3) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak; (4) Milkweed by Jerry Spinelli; (5) Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver; (6) The Perks of a Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky; (7) Looking for Alaska by John Green; (8) Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley; (9) Winger by Andrew Smith; (10) Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta;(11) Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma; (12) The Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson; (13) Hold Me Closer, Necromancer by Lish McBride; (14) Ready Player One by Ernest Cline; (15) The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E Lockhart; (16) The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti; (17) Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews; (18) Every Day by David Levithan; (19) Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein; (20) Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell; (21) The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour; (22) Boy 21 by Matthew Quick; (23) Winter’s Bone by Daniel Woodrell; (24) Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi; (25) Bog Child by Siobhan Dowd; (26) Uglies by Scott Westerfeld; (27) Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld; (28) Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson; (29) Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King; (30) The Giver by Lois Lowry; (31) The DUFF by Kody Keplinger; (32) Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
There were a ton of titles we wanted to include but didn’t quite make the cut — so which ones would you have included on this list? Let us know in the comments! – Kristen D.
