Top Teen Reads of 2017 from your HCPL Teen Librarians!

2017 was definitely a roller coaster ride. There were some incredible peaks, plenty of quick drops and more than a few twists and turns.  We costumed up and partied at the Library Comic Con, saw the sun go dark during the Great American Eclipse, and fought the rise of fake news.

But 2017 was also another awesome year for YA books.  We read SO MANY great books this year, it was hard to choose our favorites.  We cheered for new titles from past favorites John Green and Philip Pullman. We were bowled over by brand new authors like Angie Thomas and Sandhya Menon. And we loved seeing YA lit continue to tackle topics relevant to all teens, reflecting the diversity that surrounds us every day.

Without any further adieu, here is your HCPL Teen Librarians’ Top Teen Reads of 2017. ¬†You may just find your next book to read on this list – click on the titles to head to our catalog and place copies¬†on hold!
