  1. Nice list! I just finished Gone Girl yesterday and was quite impressed. The Devotion of Suspect X was pretty good as well. I went through a Lee Smith phase years ago, and I think I read Fair and Tender Ladies then, but alas all those books are in a pre-blogging black hole and I can hardly remembers then. I ought to pick up something of hers again one of these days.

  2. HI Priscilla, Happy New Year!! I am excited to keep this list and hopefully read some of your favorites in 2013!! I have only read Gone Girl from the below list and loved it. Would you mind if I forwarded this list to my mom in CO? She is a big reader and I think she would enjoy your list. Happy New Year! Sincerely, Jen


  3. Teresa, have you read Flynn’s other books? I enjoyed them just as much as Gone Girl. I have a few other Lee Smith books to read this year, and I have several books that were pre-blogging that I am interested to revisit. My tastes continue to change since I started the blog, so I want to see how they fare now.

  4. Hi Jen! Happy New Year! Please do forward the list–that’s what it’s for! I’m glad you loved Gone Girl, and I can’t wait to hear if you read any of the others. I hope we can get coffee sometime in January! Best wishes and be safe tonight!

  5. Love reading what books other bloggers liked in 2012. Gives me great ideas for 2013. And my reading year was pretty grim, as well. I didn’t get anywhere near my unwritten goal of at least a book a week. Well, as Scarlett O’Hara would say, “Tomorrow is another day.”

  6. Gone Girl is the only one of her books that I’ve read. I’ve looked at Sharp Objects several times but never ended up reading it. I’d like to try them know though.

  7. Grad, I just bought myself a whole batch of books based on bloggers’ 2012 favorites, so I know what you mean. As far as the reading goals go, invoking the words of Scarlet O’Hara works perfectly!

  8. Gone Girl and Half Time Walk didn’t do it for me, but I loved all the others on this list that I’ve read – especially People Who Eat Darkness, Stone’s Fall and Suspect X. I hope you manage to discover some equally great books in 2013 🙂
