Wishing you a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year.
The last few weeks have kept me from the computer, but not from reading. I’m finishing several books in preparation for the New Year, the Long Awaited Reads Month and the TBR Double Dog Dare. I’ll be joining one new challenge in 2013, plan to continue with the 6th Canadian Book Challenge, and hope to read along with several on-going events including the Literature and War Readalong.
As for what I have read in 2012, here are some of my favorites:
Behind The Beautiful Forevers by Katherine Boo
Errantry: Strange Stories by Elizabeth Hand
John Saturnall’s Feast by Lawrence Norfolk
Lost Memory of Skin by Russell Baker
Midnight’s Children by Salman Rushdie
Osama by Lavie Tidhar
Possession by A.S. Byatt
Pure by Andrew Miller.
Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller
I seem to be developing quite a taste for historical fiction, something that is new to me. Have you discovered a new to you genre this past year? A genre that you find yourself drawn back to?
