Best of 2012 books!

Here's my 4th annual report on my favorite books this year. I can't of course choose just one (I did read 332 after all) Check out the 20082009, 2010, and 2011 posts. Unless stated the following books are teen titles. These are the books I've read this year and not only 2012 books. Also there are several books I could have used for many categorizes, but I chose not to duplicate them too much because there were SO many great books that I read this year. All of them hold a place in my heart! Enjoy the list!
