As 2012 comes to a close, I’ve been thinking about which books and/or authors I’ve most enjoyed this year. With the proliferation of e-readers and free Amazon Kindle apps for your phone and PC, if you haven’t already – expand your horizons, read a book today.

Never thought I’d say how much I love my Kindle and yes, it’s overtaken my love for a printed book. It’s super easy now to take a small e-reader to the beach, on vacation, work, etc. and have all my books at my fingertips not to mention instant gratification to get a new one after trying a free sample by clicking a button.

Below in no particular order are my faves for this year:

JR Ward Black Dagger Brotherhood series

Deborah E Harkness Discovery of Witches and sequel

George RR Martin Game of Thrones series

Kim Harrison Hollow series

Sherrilyn Kenyon Dark Hunter and Born series

Diana Gabaldon Outlander series

Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy

Elizabeth Hoyt Maiden Lane Series

Patricia Briggs River Marked

Margret Maron Deborah Knott series and way too many more to mention…
