I cannot believe 2012 is flying by so fast. As we hit the halfway mark I thought it worth reflecting upon some of the wonderful titles I have read year to date.
My ‘Best Books of 2012 So Far’:
A Partial History of Lost Causes by Jennifer duBois has been the pinnacle in my reading year so far. duBois displays a rare gift in this, her debut novel. Although the subject matter may be a little heavy for some, this title deserves much broader recognition than it has received to date.
Here are a few other ‘Best Books of 2012 So Far’ lists:
I am still listening to The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson (it is a long audiobook) but I can completely understand why it has made every one of these lists. On the strength of what I have heard, I expect it will make my Best Books of 2012 list too.
