Every year, I put out a list of what I think the best books of the year were. And every year I agonize over just picking ten. Some years, this is pretty easy as sometimes there just aren’t that many great books throughout the year.
This year has been exceptionally tough to choose. I’ve read over three hundred books by this point and have a few more to read during December. I have found it absolutely impossible to just pick ten books. There was no way this year with so many amazing books out there.
So I’ve decided just to list the books I love, in no particular order. I’ve even posted links to all the reviews or blog posts I’ve written about each of them (and there are a LOT!). There are over 20 books on the list this year and more coming as December isn’t over yet!
But for now, why not take a click around and check out the current list of 24 books? There will be another shorter post with the rest of the list and then I’ll post them all together. Sweet!
So click around and check out the Best Books of 2012, Part One! Part Two will be coming later this month! Woooot!
