2012 Reads Recap: history, fiction, comics oh my!

2012 Reads Recap: history, fiction, comics oh my!

Facebooktwitterredditpinterest

This post is out of control. I read lots of books this year, most were great, some were not. The books are broken up into three categories: graphic novels/comics, non-fiction, and fiction. Within each category they are ranked 1 out of 5 (5 is best) and alpahbetically within each ranking. If you get overwhelmed, just look at the top five below then go read them.

For number junkies, here is a stat breakdown:

  • 16,027 total pages
  • 300 average pages/book
  • 54 total books
  • 44 paperback
  • 29 fiction
  • 15 graphic novels/comics
  • 11 borrowed from library
  • 9 non-fiction
  • 9 hardcover
  • 4 borrowed from friends

These are books I read in 2012, not books that were published in 2012.

  1. Berlin 1 & 2 by Jason Lutes
  2. On Being Certain by Robert Burton

  1. Nice list. Dandylion Wine is a great read. Well, anything by Bradbury is, but it’s not his usual stuff. And thanks for pointing out Berlin to me.

  2. Wow! Great list! I have read only about a handful of the books listed. It looks like I need to do some catching up. Just finished “Shadow of the Sun” by Merrie P. Wycoff, a perfect read for those interested in ancient and Egyptian history. I have been searching around for new books to read. It looks like I hit the mother load here! Thank you for pointing me in the right direction!

  3. Heh, I used to have a Mary Poppins anthology with three different books – wonder what ever happened to it?

    I actually really liked In Cold Blood. Didn’t realise No Country was based on a book (though I really shouldn’t be surprised). Fantastic movie, not surprised the novel is too.
