Big Book,  Little Book

Lesley's 2012 review

What is your favourite read of 2012?
Gosh, looking through my list of reads from 2012 and it’s hard to pick a favourite, but I think I will say Divergent and its sequel Insurgent by Veronica Roth. These are fab, fab books that I thoroughly enjoyed. Discovering YA fiction over the last year or so has opened up a fantastic new genre to explore and there is always so much new stuff coming out that I always have at least one on the go!
Which book have you most enjoyed reading with your children in 2012?
Julia Donaldson is always popular here, so I think that the Gruffalo’s child has probably been our most read book this year. We also enjoyed Zog recently. These stories, with their wonderful illustrations by Alex Scheffler will last my children for a long time.
What have you enjoyed most about book blogging in 2012?
It’s been a very busy year for us, moving from Surrey to Cornwall, so for a while, book reviewing had to take a slight back seat, but I’ve not lost my passion for reading and still have a TBR pile that I can’t wait to get stuck into! I have loved the opportunity to try new books, sent out by publishers, that I might not have picked off the shelf myself and sharing about them.
What book are you most looking forward to reading in 2013?
I’m very much looking forward to reading Enders, the sequel to Lissa Price’s Starters that I read after Helen reviewed it earlier this year. It was yet another YA book I really loved! I love being able to pass my YA collection on to my 12 year old son who is a huge HP and Hunger games fan. He’s starting to get into a wider range of YA fiction which I’m very happy about! Also, as my pre-schooler is taking a great interest in reading I’m looking forward to getting slightly ‘older books’ to be able to read with him.
