Happy Teen Read Week! (Oct 16-22)

This week is Teen Read Week (from Oct 16 to Oct 22), started by YALSA! I love it!

This year’s theme is Picture It @ your library, encouraging people to pick up graphic novels, comics, and other illustrated books. I hope you’ll pick up a graphic novel (I love them!) or really, ANY teen book. There’s so many beautifully written, richly layered, and moving YA books out there!

Want to have a say in next year’s theme? Vote here. You can also watch the videos announcing YALSA’s Top 10 2011 Teen Picks, or if you’re a teen, you can enter the Teen Read Week Photo Contest, judged by Jay Asher.

Check out ILoveLibraries’ post on Teen Read Week for more info.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
