Teen Read Awards: Results!

This is waaay late but here are the winners:

Best Read
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Suzanne Collins
• Shiver Maggie Stiefvater
• Darkest Powers: The Reckoning Kelley Armstrong
• The Immortals: Shadowland Alyson Noël
• Along for the Ride Sarah Dessen

Sarah Dessen's novel is the only non paranormal related book on here. I liked that Catching Fire won! Here's a video:

Best All Time Fave
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows J.K. Rowling
• The Book Thief Markus Zusak
• The Catcher in the Rye J.D. Salinger
• The Twilight Saga: Twilight Stephenie Meyer
• Hunger Games Suzanne Collins

Oh, YES! I'm BEYOND happy with this win. Jo really deserves it! 

Best Series
Vampire Academy: Spirit Bound Richelle Mead
• House of Night: Burned P.C. & Kristin Cast
• Blue Bloods: The Van Alen Legacy Melissa de la Cruz
• Pretty Little Liars #8: Wanted Sara Shepard
• Mortal Instruments: City of Glass Cassandra Clare

I do like this series and I'm glad it won. Honestly, I'm not the biggest House of Night fan out there so I'm *glad* it didn't win. 

Best Book-to-Flick
Harry Potter & the Half-Blood Prince J.K. Rowling
• Push Sapphire
• The Twilight Saga: New Moon Stephenie Meyer
• Whip It Shauna Cross
• The Chronicles of Narnia C. S. Lewis

Not my favorite pick BUT it was much better than Twilight. I know that sounds mean and all, but it's the truth. 

Best New Writer
Fallen Lauren Kate
• Wish Alexandra Bullen
• Before I Fall Lauren Oliver
• Beautiful Creatures Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
• Hush, Hush Becca Fitzpatrick

Haven't read this one so saying anything would be biased, don't you think?I have read Before I Fall, Beautiful Creatures and Hush, Hush. Yes, I am surprised that Lauren Oliver or Kamie and Margaret didn't win, but what can I do?

Best Hero
Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book Five: The Last Olympian Rick Riordan
• The Curse Workers: White Cat Holly Black
• Leviathan Scott Westerfeld
