Top YA Books at BPL

Here's a list of the 50 books that have been checked out the most from the teen sections at BPL in the past three months (just in case you're curious about what other teens are reading). They are in descending order according to number of times checked out. It's an interesting mix of reality, fantasy, dystopia, retold fairy tale, and mystery, as well as including both stand-alone and series fiction. It's nice to see so many books on the list that have been reviewed here on our blog, either by us or by you--maybe some of you are reading the blog!  ;-)

No surprise that John Green is at the top of the list, given how many of you love this book. Another thing I noticed--look at all the books that have a one-word title! Is this coincidence? A trend? A YA thing? What do you think?
