Not sure how I missed this, but...

Earth's YALSA's list of 2014 Teens’ Top Ten Nominations:

The Nightmare Affair, by Mindee Arnett

Of Triton, by Anna Banks

Siege and Storm, by Leigh Bardugo

Love In The Time Of Global Warming, by Francesca Lia Block

The Testing, by Joelle Charbonneau

The Eye of Minds, by James Dashner: 

Like the Maze Runner series—especially the sequels and prequel—the focus is far heavier on the action and the plotting than on characterization, and the third-person narrator tends to tell readers what our hero is feeling, rather than showing us (Michael knew his friends could see the anxiety on his face). For the most part*, though, it’s a solid techno-action adventure and I have no doubt that the Dashner Army will not only be super happy with it, but will immediately start clamoring for the inevitable sequel.

Earth Girl, by Janet Edwards

The Clockwork Scarab, by Colleen Gleason:

It’s fun, it’s smart, and despite the familiar components, it’s a solidly entertaining steampunk adventure. Most notably, it has a much stronger focus on the relationship between the girls than on any of the various romantic entanglements, and there’s a thought-provoking thread about feminism, and about cultural assumptions about gender roles: how “appropriate” conduct is defined by worldview.

Maybe I Will, by Laurie Gray

The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die, by April Henry

Splintered, by A.G. Howard: This song will save your life

Like Carroll's Alice, much of the time that Alyssa is in Wonderland, things are out of her control. Unlike Carroll's Alice, though—and this is where my major difficulty with the book lies—Alyssa's loss of control can almost always be chalked up to one of the two guys in her life: Morpheus, a Wonderland denizen who has a penchant for fancy hats and a hookah, and Jeb, the aforementioned crush. She is bossed around, held against her will, lied to, and argued about as if she A) wasn't standing right there and B) someone with, you know, AN OPINION ABOUT HER OWN WELFARE.

Teardrop, by Lauren Kate

Openly Straight, by Bill Konigsberg

Monument 14: Sky on Fire, by Emmy Laybourne

Six Months Later, by Natalie D. Richards

Eleanor & Park, by Rainbow Rowell

This Song Will Save Your Life, by Leila Sales

Steelheart, by Brandon Sanderson

The Rithmatist, by Brandon Sanderson

This is What Happy Looks Like, by Jennifer E. Smith

Winger, by Andrew Smith

A Midsummer Night’s Scream, by R.L. Stine

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, by April Tucholke: I read this one, though I haven't written about it at length. I had issues.

In The Shadow of Blackbirds, by Cat Winters: Ditto.

The 5th Wave, by Rick Yancey: I read this one as well, and for the most part, enjoyed it hugely.
