I thought I would do a blog on different websites teens could visit to keep up to date with all the new books coming out. I am always wondering where the teens find out about books that have just been published – by looking around a book store? or searching the web? Here are some websites I have found helpful.
www.yahighway.com has a website and facebook page which is a very good place to start. Their facebook page was very helpful for the Young Adult on new books.
Another website is www.Teenreads.com. This website has a fabulous layout for teens. Very colorful, suggestions for more reads and it just presents itself as a fun site.
www.goodreads.com is a great website for anyone looking for books to read. There are wonderful reviews and you can rate the books that you have read and make a list of books that you would like to read.
One website I just learned about, so I have not used it at all is www.yabookscentral.com. It has a nice set up and a star system to rate the new books. This website looks very useful for even a librarian to use. This one also has a facebook page called YABooksCentral.
http://yalit.com this a very simple site which tells when the books are being released, and what stores you can find them.
http://www.ala.org/yalsa/bfya-nominationsis the American Library Association website for Young Adult. This website may seem overwhelming to a teen but has some great suggestions.
I would love to hear from you on any websites or facebook pages that you use to find out the new releases, other than book store websites. Enjoy your next read.
