Booklist 2008 Editors' Choice

And Booklist has put out its 2008 Editors' Choice. (Actually, it was out a week ago; I kind of dropped the ball on this one...) Here's a rundown of the 19 YA fiction titles:

The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman
Pretty Monsters, Kelly Link
What World is Left, Monique Polak
Octavian Nothing Vol. II: The Kingdom on the Waves, M.T. Anderson
Nation, Terry Pratchett
Chains, Laurie Halse Anderson
Here Lies Arthur, Philip Reeve
The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins
Graceling, Kristin Cashora
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, E. Lockhart
Impossible, Nancy Werlin
Little Brother, Cory Doctorow
Climbing the Stairs, Padma Venkatraman
The Knife of Never Letting Go, Patrick Ness
Paper Towns, John Green
The Diamond of Drury Lane, Julia Golding
Madapple, Christina Meldrum
Tender Morsels, Margo Lanagan
The Boy Who Dared, Susan Campbell Bartoletti

And if you're wondering, the Top of the List prize isn't among these—it went to Little Audrey by Ruth White, a book for middle readers.
