LDS Book Finalists for 2012

Hi, everyone!

We at Beehive Books are currently working on reading the book finalists for the 2012 Whitney Awards.  I am reading the romance finalists, and my mom has read almost all of the finalists from all of the categories--isn't she amazing?  Soon she and I we will be casting our vote on which book from each category should win.  Which of these are your favorites and why?  Post your comments here on our blog or on our Facebook or Twitter pages.
