PW’s Barbara Vey & team list their Favorite Books of 2012
Thanks to Barbara & Team I thought you’d enjoy seeing their list of bests — we’d love to hear your favorites too, love to hear your recommendations!
There are best of lists popping up all over. Best books, best movies, best fashions and more than enough worst lists, but we won’t go there. Rather than name “Best Books,” we’re going with the WW Ladies favorite reads of 2012. Now this doesn’t mean the book had to be published in 2012, it just means it had to be read in 2012. In their emails to me, many lamented the fact that they could pick just one and it was a very difficult decision. Kym absolutely couldn’t make up her mind. Regardless, here’s what I finally got out of them.
Heidi - Gnome on the Range, by Jennifer Zane
Sheila – Somebody to Love, by Kristan Higgins.
Joysann – This is too hard… I don’t like to choose. There are just too many books I really enjoy a lot. Print book: Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness
Audio book: I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella
Susan - The Emperor’s Conspiracy by Michelle Diener
Kym – I can’t do it! I loved Trisha Ashley‘s newest, Chocolate Shoes and Wedding Blues, just as I love all of hers. Really liked Grace Burrowes‘s Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight and was also thrilled to discover Rena Gregory’s short story in the Five Golden Rings anthology.
Michael – Timeless (The fifth book in the Alexia Tarabotti series) by Gail Carriger (audio book)
Ashley – One Night Rodeo by Lorelei James
Barbara Vey says:
“I have to agree that’s it’s almost impossible to pick a favorite book I read this year. There were many that I enjoyed, but the two I talked about most to people were The Escape Diaries by Juliet Rosetti , a fun romp with an escaped but not guilty convict and Ready Player One by Ernest Cline, a futuristic adventure that I couldn’t put down. Neither were all romance, but did have romantic elements.”
Please take a moment to tell me the best book you’ve read in 2012.
