On Tuesday I posted the Award books given in the Tween categories.  Today will be for the Teen and YA categories.  These awards are given annually by the American Library Association (ALA), the Association for Library Services to Children (ALSC)  and the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA).  I have unfortunately only read two of the books that have won awards, but many of these have been on my TBR and now they been moved up because they are award winners.

Michael L. Printz Award

Excellence in Literature for Young Adults

Honor Books

I was very surprised that The Sun is Also a Star didn’t win, due to how much I heard and saw about it online, but and honor is still good.  Scythe was amazing and I’m so glad it was recognized.

Winner

As amazing as this book is suppose to be, I wish that the committees talked to each other more so that it didn’t win 3 awards.
