Best Books of 2012 from The Bibliotaphe Closet
By Zara D. Garcia-Alvarez / @ZaraAlexis
The wonderful thing about the end of a year is the ability to look back in retrospect. In a year, I was able to read, rate, and review a total of 45 books, primarily literary fiction, on my blog, The Bibliotaphe Closet. Of the 45 titles, here are my top 15 choices of the books I’ve read in 2012 (not necessarily books that were published in 2012):
1. The Glass Boys by Nicole Lundrigan
2. I Am Forbidden by Anouk Markovits
3. The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman
4. Alone in the Classroom by Elizabeth Hay
5. This Will Be Difficult to Explain and Other Stories by Johanna Skibsrud
6. The Deleted World by Tomas Transtromer
7. The Red House by Mark Haddon
8. Half-Blood Blues by Esi Edugyan
9. The Rest Is Silence by Scott Fotheringham
10. The Bellwether Revivals by Benjamin Wood
11. The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce
12. Inside by Alix Ohlin
13. Born Weird by Andrew Kaufman
14. The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
15. Monsieur by Emma Becker
It’ll be interesting to discover which books I will read, review, and most enjoy in the year 2013.
Goodbye 2012…The Bibliotaphe Closet was filled with many new releases that have enriched my reading experience and hopefully have enriched yours.
I’m looking forward to reading a whole new batch for 2013!
What will be the first book you choose to read in the New Year?
