2012 Sparkler by Creativity103

With only a few days left of 2012, I thought it would be fun to share my thoughts on the books I’ve read this year.  There’s a linky at the of the post, so if you’ve written about your favorite books of 2012 or most hated, etc, please add it to the list!

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m on track to finish the year at 80 books.  Did you know that, according to Gawker, the average reader only read 15 books this year?  (Thanks for the link Taylor!) I’m way ahead of the average, but that makes me sad too. My number would be a lot higher if I counted all the books I’ve read to my kids, but for my goal, I wanted to include books I’m reading for myself.

My favorite books I read in 2o12 were (in no particular order):

I think I recommended Gone Girl to everyone I spoke with. I just loved its twists and turns.  The other books on the list just touched me in an unforgettable way. I’m actually glad that I have two non-fiction books listed because I tend to shy away from non-fiction because I read them so slowly.
Now it’s your turn! Share with me your best and worst of 2012. Did a particular book stand out for you, whether positive or not. Leave a comment or if you wrote about it on your blog, add it to the link form below.

  1. I still haven’t read Gone Girl! It will definitely be on my 2013 list!

  2. I loved Gone Girl, too! I think my favorite of the last few months was Wife 22 by Melanie Gideon. I kept track of my books (with mini reviews) on my Pinterest board here:
