Best Books of 2012

Here are my favorite books of those I read in 2012.  The books that I have already reviewed in this blog have links to the post where they were reviewed.

Fiction: I read a lot of fiction this past year, most of which I enjoyed tremendously.  Books like Delirious Summer by Ray Blackston, which was a great light-hearted laugh; Last of the Breed by Louis L’Amour, a tremendous adventure; and a reread of the 100 Cupboards trilogy.  But certainly my favorite fiction read of the last twelve months was The Chiveis Trilogy by Moody Bible Institute theology professor Bryan Litfin.  It was not only a fun adventure and romance, but also a thought-provoking theology about life without God’s Word.

Our favorite family read-together books were Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Peace Like a River by Leif Enger.  Once we got into the last one, it was hard to keep my daughter out of it on days we couldn’t read together.  It was that good in parts.

Nonfiction:  Even though Killer Angels is rightfully considered fiction, I put it here as one of the best because the history in it was so carefully researched, and I learned a lot from it.  In the category of Christian Nonfiction, Joseph Stowell’s Radical Reliance gets the best book nod.
