MY TOP 10 16 OF ALA MIDWINTER:

There were a LOT of freak'n awesome titles at ALAMW12 (recap here)... but here are the ones I'm most excited to read. It was so hard to chose ones for this stack. I finally had to stop adding or switching ones out! There's a little of everything here: dystopian, contemporary, paranormal, fantasy, historical fiction, romance, and a retelling!
