What are your favourite books that you’ve read this year?

The 26-Storey Tree House by Andy Griffiths and Terry Denton was chosen as the best book of 2012 by Christchurch kids.  I’m sure you’ve all read HEAPS of books this year that you thought were absolutely fantastic (I know I have).

What are some of your favourite books that you’ve read this year?  They might be new books or old books, fantasy or adventure, set in the past, the present or the future.

We would love to hear about your favourite books that you’ve read this year.
