2012: A Look Back: Fiction and YA

2012 must have been the year of non-fiction. When I read through my list of books I read and started jotting down my favorites, there were many more non-fiction than fiction that made my list.
Here are the adult fiction titles and middle grade/YA titles that were noteworthy for me in 2012.
