Best Reads of 2012
Here is my belated list of favorite books read during 2012:
Bloodraven, P. L. Nunn
Shattered Glass, Dani Alexander
Out of the Woods, Syd McGinley
Collared, Kari Gregg
Dark Space, Lisa Henry
Cethe, Becca Abbot
Draconian Measures, J. C. Owen
Favorite series: Josh Lanyon, Adrien English Mysteries
Favorite book for sheer enjoyment value: My Fair Captain, J. L. Langley
Favorite YA: The Explosionist, by Jenny Davidson
Observations: Wow, except for the YA, all of them are M/M! It makes sense though. I’d read nothing in the genre before August. For a voracious reader nothing is better than discovering a new genre you’re really excited about. You still have all the best books left to read!
I joined Goodreads in July, but it wasn’t until the end of August that I started adding new books instead of rating ones I’d already read. The first book that I discovered through Goodreads was Morgan Hawke’s Interstellar Discipline series, which I loved. (Thank you Menage Reading Group). In one of those serendipitous readerly moments, I next found Collared by Kari Gregg, which I rated and reviewed on August 31.
I have not looked back.
Since then, I have read 62 M/M books. In four months!
(Parenthetical note that pretends to correct but is really covert bragging: that number is not exhaustive. I did not include M/M books I didn’t finish or non-M/M, most of which were newly published books from series I was already reading. More bragging: I read every book on the above list at least twice, a few of them four times).
I will be posting my reviews of all of the books on the list in the coming days.
Note: All of the links are for Amazon, except for Bloodraven, which is available at Smashwords.
