After looking at so many different lists of the best books of 2012, I decided to create my own. I don’t often see the books that I liked the most being represented, so why not create a list where I – and you – can finally see them.
Best Fiction: This is How You Lose Her by Junot Diaz
Best Poetry: Pepper Girl by Jonterri Gadson
Best Young Adult: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Best Picture Book: Each Kindness by Jacqueline Woodson
Best Graphic Novel: The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillion
Best YA Graphic Novel: Friends With Boys by Faith Erin Hicks
Best Non-Fiction: How To Be Black by Baratunde Thurston
Best Memoir: The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe
Best Fantasy: The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Best Science Fiction: On the Head of a Pin by Walter Mosley
There are some other categories missing, but I didn’t read any in those categories, so I didn’t include them. Also, if I chose from all the books I read this year, and not just the ones that were published in 2012, the list would be considerably different.
I need some recommendations for 2013. What books would you recommend I read?
P.S. Except for two, each book on this list I checked out at the library.
