This week's Top Ten:
Top Ten New to Me Authors Read in 2012
Paige Toon: I just discovered her the other day while searching for a Christmasy Chick Lit. I've read Johnny Be Good and Baby Be Mine. I didn't enjoy Baby Be Mine so much but really LOVED Johnny Be Good. I can't wait to go through her backlist.
Jojo Moyes: Her book Me Before You was the perfect book to get me out of the reading slump I was in. Such great characters. I have a couple more of her books now, hoping the rest are just as good.
Sarah Maclean: The thing with historical romances is the idea of reading them is much more pleasurable than actually reading them. I was in the mood for a good historical romance and decided on Nine Rules to Break When Romancing a Rake, and loved it. It is witty and so much fun. Will definitely be reading more of her in 2013.
Elizabeth Haines: Into the Darkest Corner is one of my favorites in 2012. I read this one in one seating anticipating the climax. So good.
Gustave Flaubert: Madame Bovary is my favorite classic, EVER. It's intense, real and depressing, but o'so good. I didn't expect to love it so darn much, but I felt things I never thought I could while reading a book. I must read more of Flaubert's work.
Paula McLain: I am so happy I decided to read The Paris Wife. I thought it might be a little boring, but I went ahead and picked it up, and immediately was drawn into Hemingway's first wife life. It was interesting to see how she interacted with all these creative geniuses.
Gillian Flynn: I started with Dark Places, it's a sad engrossing story, then read Gone Girl....yeah, she has a twisted imagination. I am a huge fan now....I will read everything she writes. Brilliant.
Maria Semple: Where'd You Go, Bernadette is so freaking good. Best character hands down that I read this year.
Amor Towles: Rules of Civility. Great book. Loved the setting and period.
