And so it begins!
The season's Best of 2012 lists have begun.
Here, the New York Times lists its 25 Most Notable Children's Books of 2012, with selections in young adult, middle-grade, and picture book categories.
I'm embarrassed to admit I haven't read a single one of them yet! I am always behind in new books because I have so many good older ones waiting to be read. I do have John Green's The Fault in Our Stars sitting on my shelf, though - lent to me by a young friend after I squealed upon seeing her reading it!
And speaking of John Green, an Entertainment Weekly poll found him to be readers' #1 author! That's not just out of YA authors, but ALL authors - he even came in ahead of J.K. Rowling.
Have you read any of the NYT's top 25? Do you agree with their choices? I better get busy!
