Top 5 Books of 2012

Posted by on Jan 2, 2013 in Reviews | 0 comments

In 2012 I read 40 books, and I have to say that most of my favourite reads of 2012 were re-reads of old favourites. Here, however, I will post about my top 5 new books I read. They weren’t necessarily new books published in 2012, but were new books to me that I read for the first time in 2012. You can check out all the books I read in 2012 at goodreads.

1. The Price of Spring by Daniel Abraham

ThePriceOfSpring
This is book four of the Long Price Quartet. It is telling, but for a lot of series this year, including some on this list, I enjoyed the final book the best. The series starts with A Shadow in Summer, and it started off good, and by the end was great. The world is medieval Asian inspired, where we follow Otah and Maati through their lives. This series is a must read, and I believe I will follow anything that Daniel Abraham writes.
