Archives - Teenreads Monthly Update

Hi Teenreaders,

The year is rapidly coming to a close, and we know you have a lot on your mind (winter vacation! Christmas shopping! Coming up with the perfect New Year’s plans! College applications! The 10-hour drive to your grandma’s house with your parents, siblings and dog! Figuring out how to sleep until noon every day without getting yelled at!).

Therefore, we’re going to keep this newsletter short and sweet, highlighting just the coolest opportunity on our site right now: Nominate Your Favorite Books for the Teen Choice Book Award! You'll find more info in the section below, but in essence: vote for your 15 top favorite books published in 2015 with a goal that one of them will become one of the five finalists. Every vote counts!

Hi Teenreaders,

The holidays are about all sorts of things --- celebrating your culture and religion, getting together with family and friends, and having an excuse to eat as many latkes and gingerbread men as humanly possible. And what’s that pesky thing I forgot? Oh right --- presents!

While giving and receiving is a lovely tradition, I’m not going to pretend it’s a calm one…as the clock ticks toward December 13th (the last night of Hanukkah) and the 24th (Christmas Eve), you can find more and more harried people running through the street (or the mall), glasses askew, shopping bags waving around wildly and smacking passersby in the head.
