I have been lucky this year and a large proportion of my reads have been 5 star reads. Because I am a dork I know it is about 25% so far. Here they are ranked from most favorite to, well, favorite.
- The Magicians: A Novel by Lev Grossman – Review
- The Passage: A Novel by Justin Cronin – Just look at the key words: Vampires, post-apocalyptic, dystopia, what is not to like.
- Clockwork Angel (The Infernal Devices, Book 1) by Cassandra Clare – This was the book I wanted to read when I envisioned Steampunk. Victorian sensibilities mised with gears and gadgets and paranormal.
- Godmother: The Secret Cinderella Story by Carolyn Turgeon – Review
- Grave Peril (The Dresden Files, Book 3) by Jim Butcher – I will never forgive SyFy for not casting James Marsters in this and giving it more time. But at least I have him reading the audio books.
- Monsters of Men: Chaos Walking: Book Three by Patrick Ness – I great end to this trilogy.
- Locke & Key V. 1: Welcome to Lovecraft by Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez; Locke & Key V.2: Head Games by Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez; Locke & Key: Crown of Shadows by Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodriguez – Great art, compelling story, horror and supernatural and keys.
What is amazing here is how many of them lead to things I am excited for this year (or next).

- The Twelve by Justin Cronin (2012)
- Clockwork Prince (Infernal Devices) by Cassandra Clare (Hardcover – Dec 6, 2011)
