Well, I managed my twin challenges of reading fifty books in a year and crushing my “New To You” author challenge of forty-five books by authors who I had previously not read books by when I initially planned for thirty.
As is customary at this time of year, it’s time to take a look back at the books which we’ve particularly enjoyed throughout the year. So, here’s my Top Ten for 2012 – in no particular order, with links to my reviews.
The Railway Children by E. Nesbit (Read in January)
The Fault In Our Stars by John Green (Read in January/February)
Divergent by Veronica Roth (Read in February)
