2012 Recommended Lists

Every year I start getting requests around the beginning of November from friends, relatives, parents of students asking me what new books are out there that would make good Christmas gifts. So last year I made a master list with Picture Books, MG Books and YA books. This year I made the master list AND boards on Pinterest for each category. Also, this time I compiled it as I read throughout the year rather than waiting until the day I needed it. Go me! So today I'm sharing it with the world in the hopes that it will be beneficial to someone somewhere. In order to make the lists I had to give the book at least 3 stars on Goodreads. I have made note of my favorites in each category though.

I obviously haven't read all the books that came out this year and I still have some I'm waiting to get to. I will continue to update the lists as I read more books. The Pinterest boards will probably be updated more regularly as they are easier.

Picture Book Pinterest Board

MG Book Board

YA Book Board

All three in list format

And if you are looking for even more the Cybil's nominations lists are always a good place to find great titles. And they have lists for Book Apps and Non-Fiction and more as well.
