The votes are in... and Stephenie Meyer again rises to the top of the Teens' Top Ten! More than 8,000 teens voiced their choice for their favorite books in the annual Teens' Top ten poll during Teen Read Week, Oct. 12 - 18, with "Eclipse," the third book in Meyer's vampire series easily taking first place. This is Meyer's second time atop the Teens' Top Ten list, as "new Moon" took the top slot last year.
Teens' Top Ten is a "Teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year! Nominators are members of teen books groups in fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted in April during Nation Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year during Teen Read Week. Readers ages twelve to eighteen can vote right here, online, anytime that week.

- Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
