Publishers Weekly has posted their best books of 2012, and in the list of Children’s Fiction (apparently this is a very vague term in regards to the maturity of the books listed.)
I’m sure all these books are wonderful to read, however, I haven’t had the pleasure of being able to read them all. However, it should be noted that John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars and Kristin Cashore’s Graceling sequel, Bitterblue are on this list.
They are well deserved to be on any “tops” list for novels.
To check out the whole list, go to Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2012.
