The Best Books I Read in 2012

I had time to read in 2012. Apparently, lots of time. I read 85 books (YA and big people). Now that the little one is here, it does not look like I will have much time in 2013 to read, as I have only read two books so far, but I am trying.
Below is a list of my favorites from 2012. They are in no particular order.

Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth

 The Hunger Games and Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins (I didn't love Mockingjay enough to reread it)

The Girls by Lori Lansens

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn 

 Love, Aubrey by Suzanne LeFleur

Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth

The Year Money Grew On Trees by Aaron Hawkins

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart

One Crazy Summer by Rita Williams-Garcia

Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Powerless by Matthew Cody

Ninth Ward by Jewell Parker Rhodes

 The Tortilla Curtain by T.C. Boyle
