My Friends' Favorite Books of 2012

A while ago I did a little informal poll on Facebook to find out what my friends enjoyed reading this year. Here are the results!

Robin Abrahams, or "Miss Conduct" of the Boston Globe, liked Breed by Chase Novak. Here's her review as well.

Blogger Sandy Smith Nawrot of You've Gotta Read This! picked 11/22/63 by Stephen King.

Author Barbara Foster Bietz picked Wonder by R.J. Palacio. She says, "Perfection on every level." You can visit Barbara's blog, Jewish Books for Children, here.

Middle-grade writer Jen Petro-Roy loved See You At Harry's by Jo Knowles.

Author Aine Greaney loved The Watch by Joydeep Roy-Bhattacharya. I did, too! Her book is called Dance Lessons and is out now. Her website is here.

Columbia University librarian and graphic novels maven Karen Green picked My Friend Dahmer by Derf.

Blogger Jeanne Griggs of Necromancy Never Pays loved Angelmaker by Nick Harkaway.

What a great list, you guys! Thanks to everyone who shared their favorites with me. What are your favorites this year?
