Reading Retrospective 2012

Well, 2012 wasn’t as good as 2010 (with 74 books read, and a new record), but it was better than last year (in which I only read 40 books). Despite continuing my Masters program, it seems that I found a little more time to read (or I organized myself in a much better fashion). The final count was an even 60!

Just like previous years, this one was interesting. I broke into a few new genres and series, which subsequently started a few book obsessions; I did some much needed re-reads of some of my favourite novels; I finished some series (as far as have been currently published); and classics took a larger part in my reading list, but graphic novels an even larger one.

The two most read authors, this year, were Abigail Roux (at nine novels) and Steven James (at seven novels). Each of these authors were new adventures into different genres (or a different extension of a favourite genre in the case of James). Roux was also the reason for one of my newly formed book obsessions.

As always please take a gander, and I hope you find something you like.
