Best Reads of 2012...

2012 was an AMAZING reading year for me. 
I read over 450 books and 62 of them made it onto my "possible top 10 for 2012 reads" list. 
(You can go read through that whole list HERE
because ALL of those books were amazingly good books.) 

But when it comes to the final list, there are some requirements that have to be met. 

First of all, reading as much as I do, I forget the details of books a LOT. The books on this list, I have NOT forgotten. 

Another indication that it will make my top ten list....rereading. I read a LOT. I also write, so my time is VERY limited. But all of the books on this list warranted at least a second read for me this year...if not even a third or fourth reread.

The ones I have read on your list are ones that I loved. I'll be adding the rest to my TBR list (if they aren't already on there).
