List: Books Read 2012

No comments

Below is a list of all the books I read and reviewed in 2012, a total of 44 reads (slightly short of my unofficial target of 52)! My first full year of blogging has been great fun. I started out aiming to read a lot of Dickens but quickly realised that rushing through his body of work was far from the best way to enjoy it so stopped after three novels (although this did include the mammoth Bleak House). Still, I certainly picked up some interesting reads in 2012 - click on any of the items below to read my review.
