Top Adult Books of 2012

Well, as promised here I am with my favourite adult reads of 2012.  There are much less of them because in general I read more YA this year than adult fiction.  In no particular order here they are:

 Still Missing by Chevy Stevens: This book is so disturbing but it is done in a way that you just can't put the book down.  If you are a realtor- never read this book. 

Forgotten by Catherine McKenzie: I read all of McKenzie's books this year and I have to say this one was my favourite.  It is about a woman who gets stuck in Africa after an earthquake and when she gets back she discovers that everyone thought she was dead.  This is a great concept and it is well written.  She is a new favourite author. 

 Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn: This book is the definition of WTF.  Every time you think you have it figured out you realize that this is just the icing on the cake.  I will be reading her other books in 2013.

The Jane Austen Marriage Manual by Kim Izzo: This is a fun read but it also delves into some serious issues.  Very well written.

 Night Road by Kristin Hannah: This is the year I was introduced to Kristin Hannah and WOW!  This book was listened to on audio and I spent a few mornings on the way into work bawling my eyes out.  Not just crying but bawling.  Such a good read! 

We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver: Another audiobook selection.  This book was difficult to get into while reading but was perfect for audio listening.  It was so disturbing and it really makes you think. 

Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter: This book is not the typical kind of book I read but I really enjoyed it.  It seemed like it would be a beachy type of read but it wasn't at all.  This was a good thing!  

What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty: A book about memory loss? Yes please!

Well there they all are.  I know, I know.  How can I have so many favourites?  I just can :)  Happy Reading!
