Wow!  There are a lot of best book lists this year, more than I remember seeing in previous years!  Here are a few that I found recently:

Kirkus Reviews Best Teen Books of 2012

The Independent’s Books of the Year 2012: Children’s Books – a best books list from the UK

The Atlantic Wire’s YA/Middle-Grade Book Awards, 2012 Edition

2012 Shortlist for the Scottish Book Trust
