What do kids really want to read, and where do they get their books? This is a great poll done by Jenny Keller Ford. Check it out!
When I started my YA 101 series a month ago, I put out a request for readers, between the ages of 13 and 20 to take part in a not so scientific poll to find out what they like to read and what is their favorite genre. The results surprised even me. Below are the questions I asked and below that are my results.
Out of the following categories, what is your favorite genre to read:
- Adventure (i.e.: Island of the Blue Dolphin; Harry Potter)
- Contemporary (i.e.: Sarah Dessen novels; The Fault in our Stars)
- Dystopian (i.e.: Hunger Games; Divergent)
- Fantasy / Sci Fi (i.e.: Eragon / I am Number Four)
- Paranormal Romance (i.e.: Twilight, Beautiful Chaos)
- Steampunk (i.e.: Cinder; Leviathan)
- Urban Fantasy (i.e.: Percy Jackson; City of Bones)
How do you find books to read?

An interesting read. I’m always interested in who is reading what although I don’t read YA. My granddaughter is 9-1/2 going on 30 so I like to be in the know.
Thank you for reblogging this. I was surprised by so many parents influencing what kids read.
It’s probably only because they have the money. 🙂
