Clockwork Angel was one of my favorite books of 2010, and I eagerly awaited the publication of Clockwork Prince. Join me, your Young Adult Librarian, as I read the sequel.
Best Young Adult Books of 2011
Compiled by the Young Adult Librarian
As much as I try, I cannot read every young adult novel published in a year. These are my favorite books from all the books published within the past twelve months that I have read. Books are listed in alphabetical order by title except when an author has more than one book on the list.
These sequels and series titles are on order:
Three recent young adult novels feature ballerinas.

In honor of Halloween and the new television show based on The Secret Circle books, the teen blog presents ten young adult novels featuring witches both good and bad.

If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, you might view zombies as brain eating monsters. In some recent young adult fiction, zombies have been portrayed as very good looking undead. Whatever type of zombie you prefer, there is a recent young adult novel for you.
For the past several weeks, the Young Adult Librarian has looked back at her favorite books from 2010. Here are the runner-ups:
The Duff by Kody Keplinger
White Cat by Holly Black
