2012 Top Ten



Once again, dear teen readers, it’s Top Ten time! Please note that there has been absolutely no attempt to balance this list by age, gender or genre. These are just my “from-the-gut” favorites of the books I read this year. (While I love all my Top Ten books the same, there just might be a slugfest going on in my heart between THE DIVINERS & SAILOR TWAIN:) Click on the title to go right to the review.

Bray, Libba. The Diviners.

Coats, J. Anderson. The Wicked and the Just.

Green, John. The Fault in Our Stars.

Griffin, Adele. All You Never Wanted

King, A.S. Ask the Passengers.

Lanagan, Margo. The Brides of Rollrock Island.

Laybourne, Emmy. Monument 14.

McCormick, Patricia. Never Fall Down.

Siegel, Mark. Sailor Twain or The Mermaid in the Hudson.

Strayed, Cheryl. Wild.
