My Favorite Books of 2013

Can you believe it’s December already? I can’t. It took me a while to get over my denial and actually sit down to write this blog post. Here were my favorite books for kids and teens this year (not necessarily books that came out this year, just ones that I read this year).

My Favorite Young Adult (YA) book

Rapture Practice by Aaron Hartzler (my review)

Also excellent books in case you’re not up for a memoir (hey, it happens):

The Diviners by Libba Bray (my review)
The Bitter Kingdom (Girl of Fire and Thorns book #3) by Rae Carson
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

My Favorite Middle Grade (MG) Book

Chains by Laurie Halse Anderson

While I read other great MG books this year, this one just blew the rest out of the water for me. I didn’t blog about it, but OMG I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

Favorite Graphic Novel(s)

Boxers & Saints by Gene Luen Yang (Actually a 2 book set, and yes, you need both.)

Favorite Picture Book

While I reviewed a bunch of awesome picture books, I really can’t just pick one. Ack! That would be like picking which one of my children I loved the best! (And anyway, why would you want to read just one picture book? Seriously.)
