Teenreads, mainstay of The Book Report Network, has been a haven for fans of YA lit for a long time now. 20 years to be exact. And they are celebrating big time with an amazing book giveaway, a history of Teenreads, and more!
We’ve had a great time looking back over the last two decades, asking ourselves: What’s changed and what’s the same? As we reflected, we knew we had to do something BIG to celebrate. We started by creating a list of some of the best young adult books of the last 20 years. We used that list to design the graphic for our special anniversary logo, which you can see above.
Now, let’s get this party started! Below is a list of all of the different ways we’re celebrating:
