Quick Picks for Reluctant Young Adult Readers

YALSAWe all know kids who, for whatever reason, are less than enthusiastic about reading. Fortunately, YALSA has a committee that picks fiction and non-fiction books that will appeal to reluctant readers between the ages of 12-18, regardless of why they don’t like to read. The 2013 Quick Picks list includes 65 titles and 3 series; there is also a top 10 list. For more ideas, view the past lists. There’s also a compilation of books in series that have been featured in the past.

You can also suggest books for consideration if you have titles that have been popular in your library. You can view the selection criteria to see how the books are evaluated.

How popular are the selected titles with your reluctant readers? Do you have recommendations that have been successful in your library? Share them in the comments!
