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