Happily, I enjoyed the majority of them and understand why they became finalists. Also, I love all the titles that eventually won their category. There are two books I did not include: one in which I was unable to obtain a copy, one I disliked due to the narrator (and subsequently did not finish), and one is included below that I did not listen to because it is #10 in a series, and I haven't read the preceding titles. I think those are the only omissions.
Hopefully, you will find a title or two to recommend to youth, or to listen to yourself!
