This week’s top ten list was a tough one (as hosted by The Broke and The Bookish). Last week, I listed my favorite new authors I discovered in 2012. I didn’t want to have two identical lists in a row, so it took some effort to make sure there was little overlap (only Tell the Wolves I’m Home made it on both lists, it’s that good – go read it). I generally try to include books I’ve blogged about, however, as I only started this blog in July, half of 2012 isn’t covered. And it was a good half.
I love lists, but they are incredibly subjective. What one person loves, another may hate. For example, three books I’ve seen floating around on a few lists (Defending Jacob, Sweet Tooth, and NW), I really didn’t care for. I’m curious to see the other lists out there (and hoping I don’t read anything fantastic between now and the end of the year).
So, without further rambling on my part, here are ten of my favorite books (naturally, I also think they’re the best) published in 2012. For once, I’m including a couple of nonfiction as well. For those of you who are not regular readers of the review portion of my blog, I love food and a couple of beautiful cookbooks got thrown in as well…
In no particular order (except the top two are my favorites):
Favorite book of 2012? Please share, I have no desire for my TBR list to ever be manageable.
