Year end approaches and so does our hunt for our top favourite reads of the year. Let us know of your best reads and favourite authors of the year. You can list as many as you like. Were there any unexpected favourites? Or did you revisit some of your all-time favourites this year?

We'll take a stock on New Year's Eve to see which reads were the particular favourites of our readers in the year 2012.

3. A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin
4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone by J.K. Rowling (re-read)
5. Solo by Rana Dasgupta
6. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (an unexpected enjoyment, as I rarely read classics and even rarer that I end up liking them)

8. Winter's Bone by Daniel Woodrell
9. The House I Loved by Tatiana de Rosnay
