It’s that time of year again…

This is the season for end-of-the-year book lists, where book reviewers highlight the “best” books of the year. These lists are usually dominated by literary fiction and serious nonfiction, but they can also venture beyond that to include popular titles, Young Adult books and graphic novels. Sometimes snarky rebuttals to these best-of lists follow, such as Slate Magazine’s Overlooked Books of 2012.

I use these lists as a good reminder of some of the books I’ve meant to read over the last 12 months but haven’t found the time. I’m hoping to tackle a couple over the last couple of weeks of the year.  

What are your favorite books of 2012?

Thanks for all these great

Thanks for all these great links! Really helps me compile my own end of year/new year reading list!

I LOVED Zadie Smith's latest.

I LOVED Zadie Smith's latest. It was frantic and emotional, but still had a plot! Literary, yes, but she's taking risks.
