Favourite Reads of 2012

In American, Literature, Russian on 26/12/2012 at 18:23

Back in 2011 I wrote a post about my favourite books I’d read in the past year. The post turned out to be unexpectedly popular so I’m following it up with my list of favouritre reads from 2012. This year has not been great to me. It has been full of dissappointments and failed plans. But at least I got to read a lot.

Megan Abbott- Dare Me (2012); The Song Is You (2007)

Raymond Carver- Beginners (2009)

Anton Chekhov-The Fiancée and Other Stories (1986)

F. Scott Fitzgerald- The Great Gatsby (1925)

John Green- The Fault In Our Stars (2012)

Dashiell Hammett- The Glass Key (1931)

Ernest Hemingway- Men Without Women (1927)

J.D. Salinger- Franny & Zooey (1961)

Walter Tevis- The Man Who Fell To Earth (1963)

Jim Thompson- The Killer Inside Me (1952)

Leo Tolstoy- Anna Karenina (1877)

Daniel Woodrell- Winter’s Bone (2006)
