My favorite release of this year is probably Gone Girl. That book messed with my mind


message 5: by Kevin (new)

Kevin Her is my list:
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
The Compound by S.A. Bodeen
Patient Zero by Jonathan Mayberry
And Miles To Go by Richard Paul Evans

Matthew | 37 comments In no particular order, because I find that sort of thing impossible.

Moby-Dick

The Passage

Arctic Dreams

Stay Awake

Cryptonomicon

The only one on the list published this year was Stay Awake, but these were definitely my favorite reads this year.

Kevin Of course I just realized that some of the books I listed were read in 2011. Time goes by too quickly.

Cuckoo's Nest is one of those books I will certainly re-read in my life. However, it is also one of the books I wish I hadn't already discovered, so that I could discover it anew again.

Kim These are my favourite books that I read this year. And none of them were released in 2012 (although some of the sequels were).

Rivers of London plus both sequels.
Perdido Street Station
All You Need Is Kill
Old Man's War
The Lies of Locke Lamora and Red Seas Under Red Skies
Beat the Reaper
The Sword-Edged Blonde plus the rest of the Eddie LaCrosse books.

Kevin I am listening to the audio book "The Complete Mysteries of Sherlock Holmes" right now. I am watching the show Elementary right now and it is interesting how they stay true to Holmes as a character for the most part. I would add this to my 2012 list even though it will take me through 2013 to finish.


message 11: by Kevin (new)

Kevin *"The Complete Stories of Sherlock Holmes"


message 18: by Melissa (new)

Melissa Existentialism and Human Emotions
Gone Girl
Kick-Ass (all of the comics)
The Walking Dead, Book One (comics 1-105!)
Batman: Earth One
Leviathan Wakes
Kushiel's Dart
A Game of Thrones (and the next 2 in the series)

I read quite a bit more but these were the ones I seriously enjoyed!
