We have so many great authors and illustrators in New Zealand and I love shouting about them. There have been a bumper crop of books from NZ authors and illustrators this year and there are strong contenders for the 2013 New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards. Some of these books have been included in my other Top 10 of 2012 lists but I wanted to do a separate list to highlight these spectacular NZ books.
I’ve read so many amazing young adult novels this year! Out of all the books I read throughout the year, young adult novels dominated, and it was so difficult to choose just 10 favourites for this list. Here is my Top 10 Young Adult Fiction of 2012. You can read my reviews of each book here on the blog.
There have been so many middle grade fiction books published this year, both here in New Zealand and overseas. It was difficult to pick my absolute favourites but here they are, my Top 10 Middle Grade Fiction of 2012. If you want to know more about these books you can read my reviews here on the blog.
