Publishers Weekly Top 10 Lists For Children and Teens
Publishers Weekly Best Books of Summer is out again this week. Publishers Weekly once again has released their list of their top books of the summer, separated into thirteen categories. Their list includes A Night to Remember by Lisa Zambetti (Abrams); The Uninvited by Anna Karenina (Orion); The House of Numbers by Gabriel García Márquez (Harper); The Secret Life of Bees by Eudora Welty (Knopf); and The Book Thief by Audrey Niffenegger (Simon & Schuster). Other summer favorites on Publishers Weekly’s best-books-of-summer list include The Best Things in Life Are Free by Ann Patchett (Knopf), The New York Times Bestsellers For Teens by Jennifer Gould (Hachette), The New York Times Bestsellers for Young Adults by Ann Powers (Knopf), and What is Money? by Charles D. Smith (Harper). The Publisher’s Weekly list was formed with help from the editors of these books. They then interviewed all the authors, and their answers are the basis for their lists. Some lists come from publishers who will not give you the book review.
In their list of Publishers Weekly best books for summer, The Book Thief comes in at number three. The book was written by Audrey Niffenegger, who also happens to be the editor of this magazine, and it is a book review, not a book review, so we won’t get into that in this review.
Other Publishers Weekly top ten include: The Boys by Sarah Waters (Picador); The Book Thief by Audrey Niffenegger (Harper); The Last Day of Summer by Mark Dos Santos (Farrar Straus); The Girl in the Yellow Hat by Ann Patchett (Knopf); and The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Philip Pullman (Orion). A couple of books that didn’t make the cut include Things Fall Apart by Donna Tartt and the Sea and Time Travel Machine by Richard Rhodes.
Of all the lists that Publishers Weekly produces, theirs is my favorite. If you haven’t read the magazine, you should. They publish books about books for children. I’ve read all of their top ten lists, and I don’t know which one of them to read.
It may be hard to imagine, but summer is nearly over. Just a few months left. Summer is one of the great times of year. You can take advantage of it. Buy books to pass along to your friends, or buy gifts for your family and friends.
Spring is coming, and it’s time for parties and summer means parties. But summer means fun too, and it means fun for everyone! It means family bonding, because everyone gets to spend time together – your kids with the kids, your friends with their friends, your spouse with the spouse, your grandparents with their grandkids, and your dog with his new puppy.
And so, when the sun goes down and winter arrives, the season comes to an end and the autumn leaves start to fall, summer means fun, and summer means fun for all. Even though summer ends, it never really ends.
Publishers Weekly offers a chance to look forward to spring and fall. In the meantime, you can look forward to your next “Best Books of Summer” list.
Publishers Weekly puts their best of the year on the best books for children and for teens.

It’s an honor for a publisher to have their books chosen by one of the nation’s most respected children’s book publishers.
