Once again we come around to the time of year for "best lists." So here is my list of best "new" (to me - as I do not include rereads on my best list) books read in 2012.

I did a fairly lousy job keeping track this year. Somewhere along the way, I even stopped merely throwing titles into my calendar. So, I certainly didn't manage reviews on more than a few books. With that caveat, my reading list for the year stands at 22 books (unless or until I happen to recall one that I forgot to record). I don't include the millions of picture book readings to the toddler, but we did go through a fair number of full folk and fairytale collections together back when I would spend 20-30 minutes reading from books with few pictures as she listened and drifted to sleep. (That was fun - I miss that stage.)

Full list of 22 titles can be found on Goodreads. My overall best of the year is probably The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. But I might have to throw the "Color Trilogy" Kim Dong Hwa up as a contender for that title as well. What follows is my full best list, which can also be found here on Goodreads.
