2012 has been a good reading year for me. I read many amazing books this year. Like everyone on Booktubing community on You Tube, I also wanted to do Top 12 of 2012. But I read 80 books this year, [14 of them are Harry Potter books (yes, I read HP twice this year)] so I found picking 12 from 66 books very difficult so I decided to do Top 15 instead.

So here are my Top 15 books of 2012 –

The-Boy-Who-Lived-Harry-Potter

It’s been over a year since I posted anything on this blog. It’s not like I dint miss blogging in the past year but its just that, since I started writing professionally, the last thing I wanted to do was come back home and write again. All I felt like doing after coming home was relax, read a book, watch a movie, eat and sleep.

But there was always a tug in my heart strings pulling me towards the blogworld. There have been numerous occasions in the previous year where I almost posted something on my blog. But then again …

I vividly remember the day when I walked hand in hand with my Grand Pa (whom I used to call Tatha) with excitement and anxiety filling every cell of my body to get my 1st ever novel from a near by library. This was done for 2 main reason; one was that I had completed all the books laying around in my home including my academic English Text Book and the two supplementary (as usual within 4 days from the purchase) and reason two was that my Grand Pa was tired of me nagging for new and innovative stories as …



the girl with the dragon tattoo

Mikael Blomkvist, a journalist who has just lost a libel case under murky circumstances is hired by Henrik Vanger, an ex industrialist to investigate the disappearance of his great-niece, Harriet 40 years ago. Unknown to Mikael, Vanger had him checked by Lisbeth Salander, a freelance investigator for Milton Security who always is an awesome hacker.

Every since I was a kid one of the 1st things I did the morning was read the newspaper. The 1st thing I read is the sports news and followed by the daily comics. And if you ask me that’s the best way to start a day… with a smile on your face reading your favorite comics. Over the years I have loved comics like Calvin and Hobbes (it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t), Garfield, Archie, Blondie, The Wizard of Id and more recently Andy Capp.

Andy Capp is the comic strip created by Reg Smythe in 1917 but
