message 1: by Yvette (new)

Yvette Where is The Graveyard Book????


message 2: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Donaghy The Graveyard Book was published in 2008. The Goodreads Choice Awards are just for 2009 books.


message 3: by Carla (new)

Carla Where is Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater or City of Glass by Cassandra Clare??? Where are they?


message 4: by Carrie (Care) (new)

Carrie (Care) Yes, the above, plus others like Hush Hush, Wings, Prophesy of the Sisters...


message 5: by Danielle (new)

Danielle When You Reach Me is fabulous, but not YA.


message 6: by H.J. (new)

H.J. Harper And Catching Fire? Great choices, but lots of omissions.


message 7: by Donna (new)

Donna It's not on the list, but my favorite was Fire, by Kristin Cashore.


message 8: by Jan (new)

Jan Percival Just One Wish by Janette Rallison, Anything but typical by Nora Raliegh Baskin
and Brooklyn Nine by Alan Gratz are 3 of the best from 2009. don't miss them!


message 9: by Crystal (new)

Crystal I haven't read any of these except for 3 Willows and it wasn't the best book I've read. But, I have heard a lot about If I Stay by Gayle Forman and most of what I heard was good. So I don't know... I wish City of Glass were on this list.


message 10: by Michael (new)

Michael Where are the ghostgirl books??? ghostgirl: Homecoming!


message 11: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger Tricks is the BEST out of any of these! (They used certain statistics to choose which books we are voting by. No one left anyone's books out as a personal decision.)


PageSageRageParker the Mighty (White Chocolate) Where is Leyla's Locket??? It's not a series yet, but there is another coming!!! It is an awesome book!!!


message 13: by Katty (new)

Katty I can't decide between Wintergirls and If I Stay. They're both amazing!


message 14: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger I haven't read Wintergirls so I'm glad you think it's amazing! I love seeing that about books I want to read. I'll have to check out If I Stay too.


message 15: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger Jessica and her friends didn't pick which books to put up Jeremy. There is actually an explanation somewhere as to how they did it and I'll try to find it for you. If I do find it I'll add a link so you can read it if you'd like.
But GR wouldn't pick one person, no matter who that person is, and allow them to choose which books to let the readers pick from.
Some of these genres I read and some I don't and I don't know which are GR authors or not so I can't comment as to any of that. But I do know that how many times certain books were shelved had a lot to do with if the book got onto the voting list or not.



message 16: by Eva (new)

Eva Leger Also, where did you get the list you came up with?


message 17: by Jessica (new)

Jessica Donaghy The Goodreads Choice Awards polls are not compiled based on market research, an editor's preference, or any one person or group of friends' preference. They are based on Goodreads statistics--how popular a book is on Goodreads and how it is typically shelved. The books listed on the Young Adult Fiction poll have both a high number of ratings and also are strongly shelved as "young-adult." Also, only books published in 2009 are eligible.

Jarrett Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco Stork.

message 22: by Carlesme (new)

Carlesme WHERE'S TWILIGHT AND SHIVER AND CITY OF GLASS?
I'VE NEVER HEARD OF ANY OF THESE BOOKS SO I'M NOT VOTING!!!

Well it seems like 99% of us have never even heard of these books, so good luck getting votes.

I think a lot of ppl are voting. The ppl voting just aren't leaving comments. The ppl leaving comments, for the most past anyway, are the ppl upset about a book not being up there.
But if you look at the polls, they are getting votes because these are the books that were shelved the most.



message 25: by Erica (new)

Erica I had hoped to see Hate List by Jennifer Brown on this list.


message 26: by [deleted user] (new)

I don't know about all of these, Jeremy, but most of the Horowitz and Patterson books and Christopher Paolini's books are all pre-2009. This is an end-of-2009 list.

This lists consists of books published in 2009 - all year - not just the end of 2009.

I think Fire should definitely have been on the list.

I thought the selections were determined by the books that were added the most by users as READ. A lot of my favorite books were left off too. But I just thought the ones in the running were again the books added by the most users to the READ catagory of our book lists.


message 32: by Kelsey (new)

Kelsey ive never herd of most of these books before
