What was your fave book of 2012?
I read a mere 44 books in 2012. That’s just one short of being 50% of the 83 books I read in 2011. The reason it dropped significantly is because I got hooked on BBC Sherlock and dove into the fanfic for several months. So I read A Lot, just not published works.
I track what I read, and at the end of each year I look at my list and choose the book I thought was the best book I read that year. Drum roll please!
2007: Good Omens by Pratchett and Gaiman. This has remained my favourite book of all time. Now if only I could remember who I lent my copy to.
2008: Christopher Moore’s Lamb, The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal
2009: A Tie beetween Josh Bazell’s Beat the Reaper (which is not an urban fantasy, but a thriller of sorts) and The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. If you can, listen to the audiobook of Graveyard. Neil himself reads it.
2010: I read all the Harry Potter books back to back, so I chose the entire series. I was also reading a lot of Discworld (Terry Pratchett), Thursday Next (Jasper Fforde) and Stephanie Plum (Janet Evanovitch), all of which are worth honorable mention.
2012: The Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris
