2012 Best Fiction for Young Adults

So YALSA posted its Best Fiction for Young Adults 2012 list, and I thought I'd show you how many of the books that I'd actually read out of all of them. I have already quickly glanced at the list, and wow, I hardly read any of the books on there! :c What's so sad is that I own more of the books on the list than the actual number of books I had read on there. -__-"
