NPR posted their best books of 2012 in four categories. They are Best Biographies of 2012, Best Mysteries of 2012, Best Young Adult of 2012 and Best Romance of 2012. (Of course NPR’s titles are different, but that is what the mean.) Each list is five books with a description of the and why they liked it. Yet again, I only read one of the the 20 books (Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child – my review). Beside not having heard of more than half the books on the lists, I think that this is the first young adult list I have seen that has not included The Fault in Our Stars.
These lists are in addition to the earlier Indie Bookseller’s 2012’s Best that Morning Edition posted last week.
