"

I've been wanting to read Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell for some time now...sure you don't like it just because it has your name on it? :P

Mine would have to be:

Boy's Life
Titus Groan
Gormenghast
Lizzie Bright and The Buckminster Boy
Legend
Among Others

um... I guess that's it. I read a lot of books I liked last year, but disappointingly few I loved. Here's to a better haul for 2013!

The Book Thief
Frankenstein
Tipping the Velvet
The Night Circus
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society
The Moth Diaries
