What is the BEST Y.A. series?
Our "October" poll is no doubt going to run into November, but we should try to get back on track, so we're not running polls into the next month for the next ten years.
We badly need additional nominations for our Best Young Adult Series poll. If we don't get a few more titles (and a lot more seconds) this ship might not sail.
Please please please please go to the original post so that I don't have to tabulate results from two different places.
The rules are there, as well as the complicated definitions of Y.A. literature and why I'd rather be inclusive with our nominations and not an enforcer.
While you're at it, take a slip down to the lower left side to the long black poll (technically our "September" poll) and vote on the best Y.A. novel. This poll will only be up for another week.
And don't forget that those of you who voted when the poll first came out can now vote again as your I.P. address is logged only for a week.

I am nominating '1984' by George Orwell. Even though it isn't really a YA novel, I think it is something that every YA should read because of it's relevant themes to today's society.ReplyDelete
