The Best Books of 2012

The BookDepository

2012 has been an amazing year for fiction - I think the quality of the books published this year has exceeded that of 2011 by a long way. I’ve recently updated my list of the Best Books of 2012 and will continue to do so if I read anything worthy of inclusion in the final few weeks of the year.

Kim from Reading Matters is also compiling a list of blogger’s favourite books of the year. She’ll be adding new books each day so it is worth popping over to see the wonderful range of books selected.

Me and My Big Mouth also has a fantastic list of 2012 books, selected by bloggers, authors and readers.

I hope that these lists enable you to discover some wonderful new books to read!

    I’m off to check these out!

  2. I’m tempted to put all of the books I haven’t read on my TBR. I agree with the books I did read, only 2, Heft and The Snowchild, they were very good.

    HhhH I still can’t imagine I’ll enjoy that – I may get it from the library at some point, not with the intention to read the whole book, just to try out a few chapters.

      Judith, I’ll be tempted to buy your entire “Best of” list too! I do think you’ll enjoy HHhH. Hopefully I’ll mention it so often that you’ll finally succumb to my pressure ;-)

    Oh dear Jackie, I think I only read one book published in 2012! It was very good (by a friend of mine) – Shrinking Violet by Karina Lickorish Quinn.

      Simon, I don’t think I’ll have read many books on your “Best of 2012″ list either. I wonder if there are any books we both like?

    I’ve got to start putting my list together. Off to check it out. (I just started The People Who Ate Darkness per your recent review … listening to it on audio.)

      Jenners, I’m so pleased to hear that you’re reading People Who Eat Darkness. I hope it works on audio.

    Oh no, so many lists to look through! Just kidding, I’m loving it of course. ;-)
