2018 Tournament of Books

Welcome to the 5th Annual YASF Tournament of Books!Here is how it works. A committee decided on the 32 initial books–what we considered some of the best books released in 2017. A wide variety of genres are present, so there’s a little something for every taste. Each round, a librarian will judge two books and decide which should continue on in the competition, until finally we are left with two books. YOU get to vote for your favorite of those two books and that will determine our winner. Sound good? Below you will see the 32 books that are battling it out for this years tournament.


32 enter.

1 will win.


Special shout out to all the librarians participating as judges this year. They’re pretty snazzy!
