WI originally set a goal on GoodReads to read 100 books in 2012. In the end, I ended with 108, which is pretty respectable, I feel. Of those 108, I have 11 of them which gained a 5-star review. Maybe I am a picky and critical reader, but it is really difficult for me to get past that 4-star point while reading nearly any book. However, these are the books that managed to outshine the rest of the pack this year (although there were some of the 4-star books that tried their hardest and almost pushed their way in). Keep in mind, there is no particular order to these, as they were all so very different and lovely in their own right. They already beat out the other reads for the year, there was no way I could make them compete among each other.
