The Book Connection's Best Books of 2012



It's time to list my top ten favorite books of the year. My taste in books remains fairly consistent, with mysteries, Christian fiction, thrillers, and historicals being my favorites. This year, I expanded a bit to include Amish fiction to my regular reads, and branched out to read dystopian fiction, a speculative fiction book and a space western novella. I should note, this list only contains fiction.  Though I did have a few non-fiction favorites, There wasn't enough for a complete list.
