AudioFile Best Books of the Year

Posted by Rebecca M
The end of the year is nearly here and it's time for readers and booklovers everywhere to start deciding how they'll remember 2016. Did you read a bunch of different books from different genres and authors, or stick to a shorter, pre-decided list? Did you find a new favorite you weren't expecting? Readers and publications are all figuring out their "Best Of" lists and AudioFile, a magazine that reviews audiobooks, profiles narrators and is always the first to know about hot new listens, has compiled their list of the best YA audiobooks from this year!
Here at Teenreads, we love a good book festival. While mingling with your favorite authors and seeing all the latest books is awesome enough, imagine doing all of that and more in sunny MiamI! Teen Board Member Rachel D. was recently on location in balmy Florida for the Miami Book Fair and she was kind enough to report back for us.  Read all about her experience below!
YALLFest, a two day book festival in Charleston, took place this month from November 11th - 12th. Teen Board member Taylor F. had the awesome experience of attending and mingling with some of her favorite authors. After returning and sorting the new additions to her TBR, she answered some questions for us about her experience. Read below to learn all about YALLFest from a teen's perspective!
