Favourite Books: 2012

I’ve been recording the books I read on goodreads and making a top-ten(ish) list since 2006, so in anticipation of publishing my 2013 top ten on December 31st, I’ll be posting my older lists here. The numbering is only an approximate order.

  1. Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel
  2. Girlchild by Tupelo Hassman
  3. Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
  4. The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson
  5. Behind the Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo
  6. Tell the Wolves I’m Home by Carol Rifka Brunt
  7. The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
  8. Land of the Blind by Jess Walter
  9. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
  10. Wild by Cheryl Strayed
How many books did you read this year? 110.

How have these books stood the test of time? I actually just made this list now, so I’m not sure if I would’ve picked different books last year.
