Best and Worst Books Of 2012

I read 55 books this year! Not too shabby :) I had several favorites, but the best one for this year was On The Island by Tracy Garvis Graves. This was such a great book! From beginning to end I loved it. The worst book ever? The Gathering by Anne Enright. OMG this book was horrific! We spent book club talking about how bad it was! Two other great books was Girl Gone by Gillian Flynn and And When She Was Good by Laura Lipman. Both of these are just great reads. Campy fun? The Immortals series by Kresley Cole, love them, lots of fun too read and read four of them one after the other. If you're a fan of paranormal romance pick them up. Most hyped disappointment? The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. It wasn't bad, but not the great read it was pumped up to be. I will give it this, I tend to hate over descriptive books, but this one made you "see" where they were. Nicest surprise goes to That Boy by Jillian Dodd, very cute story and easy quick read. I usually hate Young Adult, but I read a few this year that were decent books. After Twilight I vowed never again, but I'm glad I read these- Flat Out Love, Because Of Low, and Easy. Are you looking forward to anything special in 2013? With sadness I am anticipating Charlaine Harris' last in the Southern Vampire Series (True Blood) come May. I have no clue how she's going to wrap this up and I'm scared! My To Be Read pile is a mile long, I don't think it'll ever shrink :) There is no such thing as too many books, just too many books and too little time ;) Happy Reading....


  1. Happy New Year Paula, I will have to read On The Island. And definitely want to try LauraL this year.

    I know I am in the minority but I just didn't enjoy Gone Girl, hate the 'clever' type style, knew they would end up together and hated that, uggh.

  2. Happy New Year, Paula.

    I put On The Island on my to read list after your review. One of my libraries has it but it had a long wait list at the time I searched it. I'll have to keep on it and see if it's available.

    Everyone's talking about Gone Girl, but I've heard so many mixed reviews. I'd still like to read it to see what the deal is.

    Easy is also on my list!

    I hope 2013 is a happy, healthy one for everyone.. with lots of books! :)

    1. Gone Girl was a real page turner for me. i,liked it even though I literally hated the two main characters :)

      I think this year will be a great reading year!
