My Favorite Books of 2012

It’s that time again! Every year I choose my favorite kids’ books, and this year instead of making my millions of excuses about how it’s hard to choose only one, I decided to pick one book per category. So here we go. Drumroll, please:

My Favorite Young Adult (YA) book

This was a difficult choice since I also read and loved BitterblueThe Girl of Fire and Thorns (my review), and The Fault in Our Stars (my review) this year (all AMAZING!), but the one I ultimately chose was:


Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (my review here)

Favorite Middle Grade (MG) book

While I had trouble with the YA category, this choice was easy.


The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place, Book I (and really, the whole series so far) by Maryrose Wood (my review here)

Favorite Graphic Novel

I think this is a book for adults, but definitely could be read by a YA audience. I actually preferred Volume II, but you can’t really read it on its own.


Castle Waiting by Linda Medley

My Favorite Picture Book

Unfortunately, I’m going to have to cop out on this one. I’ve read and loved wayyy too many of them to choose only one.

More really great kids’ books (and be sure to also check out last year’s list): <a HREF="http://ws.amazon.com/widgets/q?ServiceVersion=20070822&#038;MarketPlace=US&#038;ID=V20070822%2FUS%2Fmonpoo-20%2F8001%2F5cbd7b89-64ec-4cd7-9f57-cfa32939a5cd&#038;Operation=NoScript">Amazon.com Widgets</a>
