New Year’s Wishes and Favorite Books from 2012

new-years1

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?
