2012 Teen Choice Book of the Year Nominees

In association with the Children’s Book Council (CBC) and Every Child a Reader (ECAR), Teenreads.com is giving you a very special opportunity to let your voices be heard by telling us your five favorite books of 2011. The five titles that receive the most votes will serve as the finalists for the CBC’s 2012 Teen Choice Book of the Year. Once the five finalists have been determined, we will tell you where you can go vote for them. The winner will be announced in May 2012.

All you have to do is fill out the form found here between now and February 15, 2012. Your top five selections may come from the list we’ve provided below, or you can vote for titles not on the list.

Important Note: If you choose to add a title for nomination that is not on our list, please be sure that the book(s) released for the first time in 2011; this means that paperbacks originally published as hardcovers prior to 2011 will not be accepted. If you’re uncertain about a book’s release date, we suggest you search for that title on Amazon.com, BN.com or IndieBound.com.
