    I read Dust Bowl a few days ago and really enjoyed it. I’d have to say my favorite graphic novel/manga this year was the Bakuman series, so good. I loved the Screaming Staircase by Jonathan Stroud for MG and Poison Princess by Kresley Cole was an awesome book and audio for YA.

    As for picture books, I haven’t read a ton yet, but I love One by Kathryn Otoshi. Such a moving story that gets kids talking.

      I have enjoyed Yummy and Faithful Elephants as well as all the YA titles you have read. Your list is all inclusive and I like that some are before 2013 and you have shared ones to be published in 2014, thank you!

      The Dust Bowl surprised me–I hadn’t read any nonfiction about it that was BORING and this one was not.
      Thank you for all of the recommendations! I hadn’t read anything you mentioned! Thank you.
