Literary Friday: The Best Books of 2012

Friday, December 21, 2012

I know y'all have been sick of my complaining about how this has not been my best year for reading.  Well.....I was *slightly* mistaken.  While going through my Literary Friday posts trying to choose three books for my list, I realized I couldn't narrow it down to just three: I have six fantastic books to share this year.  But the problem is that I read almost all of them during May and June!  Obviously I had a *great* spring for reading.  ;P  Plus I'm just now getting around to Frank Delaney's The Last Storyteller, and I can tell that it deserves to be on my best list, too.  Click on the link below each cover to read my Literary Friday post about each book.

Best of 2012

What books made your best list in 2012?  Please share.  This is a linky!

Until next time...
Happy reading!

  1. Hi Ricki! I'm checking out Kate Morton's book. The synopsis looks so interesting for me. Sorry if I can't link anything today. I'm still reading Perks of Being a Wallflower.

    Enjoy the holidays in your wonderful home.

  2. Hi little RJ! Oh, I'm so amazed at all of your reading. Now I haven't read any of these books but I know where to come when I need to find one. I appreciate your book reviews for us! Merry Christmas to you and your family.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  3. Oh, goodness- those are almost all on my wishlist! Heeeheee.....alright, in 2013 I'm hoping you have 12 or more best books. :)

  4. This is something I've never given much thought to, but I have to tell you it was fun to go back through my archives. I had so many books I enjoyed this year too. In the order I read them, this is my top 5: The Night Circus, Songs for the Butcher's Daughter, A Land More Kind than Home, The Old Country, and The Absolutely True Diary of a Part Time Indian.

  5. I love Kate Morton and haven't read this newest book of hers. I started reading Janet Evanovich books and they are addictive! It's fun to start with the first one, 'One of the Money'. It was made into a movie that is fun, too! Holiday hugs!
