Did you vote in NPR’s best young adult fiction poll? Did you agonize over which ten books to pick? Are you dying to know whether your favorite books made the cut?
Good news! The results are in! Check out NPR’s list of the 100 best teen books of all time, and let us know in the comments what you thought of the winners.
But wait! We have more good news! Did you know that a bunch of the authors on NPR’s list are also on Figment? Take a look at some of these awesome daily themes, interviews, guest posts and more, all featuring winners of NPR’s poll.
We featured an excerpt of Will Grayson, Will Grayson by David Levithan and John Green, which came in at number 34 on the list. We also had a great author chat with David Levithan where he chatted with Lauren McLaughlin, Robin Wasserman, and Scott Westerfeld about SAT scores and English class!
Another one of our featured authors, Shannon Hale, wrote The Goose Girl, book number 80 (read an excerpt here). You can take a look at her author post, her interview, and a recap of our chat with her (where she talked with Elizabeth Eulberg (Prom and Prejudice), and E. Lockhart (The Boyfriend List) about all things Jane Austen)!
Maggie Stiefvater, who wrote the Shiver Trilogy (number 97), has also been super active on Figment. You can read an excerpt from her novel, Scorpion Races, check out her interview, or watch a video of her reading from her novel Forever. She also stopped by for an author chat with Lucy Christopher (Stolen) where they talked about developing character voices. Oh, and we can’t forget her voicey reading list!
Scott Westerfeld, who has not one, but two books on NPR’s list (The Uglies series at number 28 and the Leviathan series at number 92), recently hosted our Team Human chat with Justine Larbalestier and Sarah Rees Brennan. We also convinced him to take the SATs again (no surprise, he did very well).
