Over at Shiny Book Review we’ve done a “Year in Review” for 2011 by talking about what our favorite books were that we reviewed. I should note, however, that one of the problems I faced was the three of my favorite books of 2011 weren’t reviewed by our regular contributors but by guest contributors, which created a slight problem (since I wanted The Sacred Band on my top 5 list but realized I couldn’t), but all in all I’m happy with the list.
There will be a new review up tomorrow as well. I waited until the new year to tackle Robison Wells’ Variant, which is quite possibly one of my top books for 2012 already. Yeah, it came out in October 2011 but I only got around to reviewing it now. However, it was worth the wait, since the book was just that good.
Another one of those “I want to write like this” books for me. Sigh.
Have a safe and happy new year. I’ll see you in 2012.
