The Books of 2012.

>> Saturday, December 29, 2012

I read a shitload in 2012. 75 books to be exact. More than I've read in the last 5 years combined probably. And if you know me, you know I tracked the hell out of that noise. So, without further delay, here are all the books I read in 2012, in order of awesomeness. Books 1-5 are all-timers, heartbreakers, gut-wrenchers, tear-jerkers, soul-stiffeners and all around masterpieces. And should be read by everyone with at least one eye.

I haven't been following the book scene the last couple of years, so I only know a handful of your massive total of 75.
Hunger Games and Never Let Me Go I've been hearing positive things about, and watched the cinematic adaptations.
The Book Thief I attempted to read, but thought was a bit overrated, and never finished-I believe there's a movie planned as well:
