Keep in mind, the list contains books I read in 2012. These are not necessarily books published in 2012, nor is this necessarily the first time I read these books. Harry Potter is my favorite book series of all time. I read it often. You'll notice it on this list but you'll notice it's not listed under my favorite reads from this year. If I highlighted it every time I read it, I'd never highlight another book.
