Reading Highlights from 2012 - Part 1


One of the things that I most enjoy about the end of the year is reading everyone's "Best of ..." lists. I devour People Magazine's and Entertainment Weekly's lists, and I read as many book bloggers' posts as possible. However, I have never written one of my own... until now!

I have always been reluctant to write a "Best of Books" list because I find it so difficult to just narrow down my year in reading to just a few favorite books. I also fear that I will leave out one or two fantastic books, and I also wonder if my list would change if I did it a few days or weeks from now.

Anyway, here's my "Reading Highlights from 2012" for Best Audio Books, Best Mystery Books, and Best YA/MG/Kids Books (in no particular order):

Best Audio Books

Best Mystery Books

Best YA/MG/Kids Books
Make sure you stop by tomorrow for Part 2 of my Reading Highlights from 2012. I will be featuring my favorite novels!

I love looking at these lists. Ours overlap a bit -- mine will go up tomorrow.

Thank you for including May B. here! I love seeing two other Schwartz and Wade books -- Rocket and Annie and Helen -- on the same list.

Happy New Year, Julie.

I've only read a few of these books but have just started The Art Forger. Wonder is on my best of 2012 list as well - in fact, it might be one of my all time favorites.

I enjoyed quite a few of the books on your list and have a couple of them on my must be read in 2013. Happy New Year.

I had forgotten about Song of Achilles - I haven't read it but have been meaning to. I loved Wonder!

I really need to read more by Tana French. I loved In the Woods when I read it a few years ago. Michael Connelly is another author I need to read more of. I adore him.

Great post!
