And in a flash, we reached the epilogue of the 366-page tome of 2012. That year sure had some of its pages dog-eared (and rightfully so)! But before I get past 2013’s flyleaf, let me give you a list of the stories that commenced a mayhem both in my cranium and in my ribcage. Here are the stories that moved me in inexplicable ways, drove me to retreat into my cocoon of blankets to cry, teased out tickled laughter from my throat, or just plainly pinched my heart. Here are my top 12 books of 2012 (in random order):
The Storyteller by Antonia Michaelis
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake
Every Day by David Levithan
Black Heart by Holly Black
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Perfume: The Story of a Murderer by Patrick Süskind
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
Cinder by Marissa Meyer
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente (review to follow)
