I'd have to say my all-time favorite books in 2012 was the Shine triology by Jeri Smith-Ready. I might just be biased because the books and author are based in Maryland and i get to go omg I know that place. But the book's were well written and very fun. I do highly recomend them for people who enjoy trilogies.

It is very lush and different feeling. Not a quick read.
