2012 ~ Year In Review

     It's New Year's Eve everyone!
     Let the festivities begin for the last day of 2012! Oh wait, I'm pretty sure they started wayyy earlier than today, XD. Or maybe not. :3 And let's just get this out of the way: it's a pretty long post. But most are lists, so no worries on hurting your eyes. (If you're worrying...) You can also go ahead and skim to the lists if you so choose.
     I've read a lot this year, though Goodreads will say otherwise because I didn't join UNTIL September this year. (That totally explains why it's 15 books. It'll be more next year. :)) There's also not a lot of reviews on Bookwyrming Thoughts due to the fact it got started this year. Excuse the fact that if the book is listed and there's no dates read on Goodreads, I likely read it earlier than when I joined Goodreads. And if there's no review on this blog or Goodreads... I likely finished reading it before November 2, 2012, when the first post was made. (How in the world do you remember that date? o-o Answer: Obvious... :3)
     I now give you the list of the Top 12's of 2012. (Because it sounds cool and I'm cool as a cucumber. Though I'm sure plenty of other peeps are doing Top 12's as well. :p) Oh, and just because you're not on the list doesn't mean you're not my Top Author, or Top Book or Top Whatchamacallit, it's just that there's only 12 spots and only so many can fit into 12. But oy, I'm not playing favorites so... they're not in order. :) (No hard feelings please? There's always next year.) Book links that have a review will lead to the review so you can check it out :3
