by | Dec 29, 2012 | 2012 Book Reviews, Book Reviews | 4 comments


The end of 2012 has come and the world didn’t end…those Mayans!  LOL!

Anyway, I’ve decided to create my own list of the books I’ve read and reviewed for the blog in 2012.  I had a good year reading and looking forward to fulfilling my reading resolution in 2013.

Here’s my favorites in 2012: (click on the title to read that book’s review)

1) Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury (RIP)

2) Daughter of Light by Morgan Busse

3) The Transmigration of Timothy Archer by Philip K. Dick

4) The Opposite of Art by Athol Dickson

5) Cover Her Face by P.D. James

6) Bag of Bones by Stephen King

7) The Child Goddess by Louise Marley

8) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

I’m currently reading The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell and I will not have my review until the beginning of the new year. However, I believe this will be the best book I’ve read in 2012 and I wanted to mention it with this list.

So what were you favorite reads of 2012?

    Just found your list through LT. I read Bag of Bones this year too and also loved it. I read it with a group on LT called King’s Dear Constant Readers. There is a discussion of the book on there if you’re interested.

    Fahrenheit 451 and Book Thief were on my favorites lists other years.

      Thanks for your response, paperbackpirate.

      I will check out that discussion. Bag of Bones was my first Stephen King novel and I was surprised by it. He’s a true talent.


  2. Claire 'Word by Word'

    Thanks for sharing your list, I would like to read Ray Bradbury’s book this year, I read one of his short stories last year and liked what I read about him as well, I think he was an interesting man as well as an accomplished writer.

    As you will have seen from my Top Reads of 2012
    , I picked Eowyn Ivey’s The Snow Child as my outstanding read of the year and I hope if you haven’t already, that you will be fortunate to read it in 2013.

      Thanks for stopping by, Claire.

      I will have to add your recommendation of The Snow Child to my ever growing “to be read” list. LOL!!
