Most popular series for teens right now...

Using the data from the unscientific poll of IFLS and PUBYAC librarians AND the more-scientific information from a list of series with books that have multiple holds on the MORE system, I have compiled a list of popular series for teens. There are many more titles with multiple holds in this group!

*#1 Twilight Saga
by Stephenie Meyer
9 votes (some didn't think of this as a series because it isn't ongoing)

#2 House of Night
by P.C. Cast
6 votes

*#3 Hunger Games
by Suzanne Collins
6 votes (some didn't think of this as a series because it is a trilogy only)

*#4 Ranger's Apprentice
