2012 First Annual Duckett Reader Choice Awards

(Sorry, this post was supposed to go live on New Years. So, let's all pretend like it did, okay?)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I hope you find the success you are looking for in 2013!

About a month ago I was challenged to read 100 books in a year. My first thought was, "Wow, I'm a slow reader, I could never do that." I got curious as to how many I have read so I wrote them all down. The count? 77! Including the 14 existing books from The Wheel of Time series, which are all huge books. Without shooting for a number, I'm pretty happy with that.
Me. Reading.
I decided to share my favorite books/series of the year, thus commences the 2012 First Annual Duckett Reader Choice Awards. It's completely unscientific, totally based on my bias, in no particular order, and not necessarily published in 2012--I just read them in 2012. But if you're looking for a good read, I suggest the following:

Thank you, to the ten of you, for writing amazing works and for entertaining and educating me. I'm looking forward to the books I can read in 2013!
