With our expanded Teen Board, we are able to cover more of these events than ever before.

One of our most popular features on Teenreads is our Ultimate Reading List, a selection of books that are compelling, beautifully written, pure fun, thought-provoking or edge-of-your-seat gripping; books that we would hand to someone and say, “read this!”

In the past, we have updated our Ultimate Reading List once a year, but now we're switching things up a bit: from this moment on, we will be updating our Ultimate Reading List every month, so you can start adding our selections to your TBR even sooner. Read below to see the titles we're adding this month.
