The very deserving winner of both the 2012 Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal is A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay.  Patrick Ness is one of my all-time favourite authors and I absolutely LOVED A Monster Calls.  It’s a beautiful, heart-breaking story and was probably my favourite book of 2011.

    The Rangers Apprentice series..

  2. The Inkheart Series by Cornelia Funke

    My name is Mina by David Almond

  4. Divergent by Veronica Roth. It’s very hard to pick only one, but this is my most recent favourite.

    The Boy in Striped Pyjamas – so innocently naive yet with the constant undercurrent of the intense cruelty of war. Gives me leaky eyes every time. Anne Frank of course is right there too.

    The Red Tree by Shaun Tan. Beautifully drawn and wonderfully written, it tells the story of one young girls struggle with life. Ever feel lost? Don’t know what’s going on? Feel alone? This picture book gives you hope. Wonderful. I have bought it for people as birthday gifts and they have loved it. Own it.

  7. If I could only pick ONE book it would have to be one from my childhood. I don’t know the author but it was called Widgery Winks or The One Who Got Left Behind and about a fairy who, yes, was left behind when all his extended family left because there were too many people and houses and cars. It was a very old book given to my Mother when she was a child but she wasn’t as fond of it as I was and at some point gave it away to a jumble sale. I would have loved to share it with my children but haven’t been able to find another copy : (

    The Magician’s Nephew by C. S. Lewis

    The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is one of my current favourites. There seem to be an awful lot of really good YA books being published at the moment, so it’s really hard to choose just one!

  10. Ahhh, so hard to pick my favorite….but one I LOVE is “The Book Thief”…so powerful and love the omniscient point of view of death as narrator…
