My Top 15 of 2012

It’s almost the end of 2012 and once again the end of the world came and went. Sorry Mayans!

Goodreads tells me that over the year, I have read 72 books. At least, that’s as many as I can remember reading. It will be 73 if I finish Tipping the Velvet today which I hope to do. And then I have two to read over vacation: How to be a Woman and The Shadow Society.

I suspect that there were more but maybe that’s just me thinking I’m more awesome than I am. Anyway, I thought that I would try and give you a list (because end of the year means lots of lists! I started with ten, but kept finding more books that I really loved, so I made it 15.

These are books that I have read in 2012, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they were published in 2012. Some were, but you will see some older ones in there, too.

The Diviners – Libba Bray

Going Bovine – Libba Bray

Ready Player One – Ernest Cline

The Fault in our Stars – John Green

172 Hours on the Moon – Jonathan Harstad

Every Day – David Levithan

Let’s Pretend this Never Happened – Jenny Lawson

1493 – Charles Mann

Flesh and Bone – Jonathan Maberry

The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks – E. Lockhart

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void – Mary Roach

Okay for Now – Gary D. Schmidt

The Scorpio Races – Maggie Stiefvater

Days of Blood and Starlight – Laini Taylor

I am the Messenger – Markus Zusak

Also, the novel is basically done! The ending might be a little abrupt, but in a few weeks, I’ll go back and do some editing. I’ll fix it then. But for now, it’s done! And I’m on vacation for the next 11 days. I may forget how to do my job!

Thanks for reading this year! See you in 2013.
