I saw this post on the Thiller forum and thought it was a good thread, so I am commandeering the idea for this forum!
What are your top 5 read of 2012? I'm going to cheat slightly and say (in no particular order):
1)The Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness - I couldn't pick one out of the 3 books, they were all utterly gripping and I read them in quick succession
2) The Song of The Quarkbeast - Jasper Fforde
3) The Big Over Easy - Jasper Fforde
4) Whispers Underground - Ben Aaronovitch
5) The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry - Rachel Joyce
I also loved One Fine Day In The Middle Of The Night by Christopher Brookmyre, he is my favourite 'new' discovered author of 2012.
And the book I was most disappointed not to be able to finish was The Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. I am a HP obsessive, so I was really looking forward to reading anything she wrote in any genre but I just couldn't get into it. I think that having it in hardback was part of the reason, as I don't seem to as get much time to read in the house as I used to and do a lot of reading on my kindle on the way to work. I will try it again this year though.
