It was quite a difficult choice to choose only 20 out of the 108 books I’ve read this year!  All the books I’ve read can be found on my Books Read 2012 page.  However, my top 20 Fiction Reads of 2012 below have been chosen from my ‘keepers’ list and no matter when I read them during the year, they still stay colourful in my mind.

  1. I haven’t read any of these books. Reading The Girl You Left Behind just now must take a note of some of the others. You get through a lot of books lol!!

  2. I love the way you have compiled your list Shaz. So much variety and great to read the different genres you’ve enjoyed and see the books you’ve highlighted. I added Saving Daisy to my wishlist after your review. I loved the Jojo Moyes book too. And there are so many here I want to read when I get chance. I love the owl at the top of the list.
    Looking forward to your reviews in 2013 and thank you for a great blog to read and for all your support of others. Happy New Year.
