Luckily to keep me from too much book-anguish there has been plenty of new reading in the last twelve months.
Here are some of the highlights:
The Difference Engine - William Gibson and Bruce Sterling - a must read for any steampunks out there.
Written on the Body - Jeanette Winterson - very beautiful love story.
Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson - a good sci-fi tale of adventure in a future gone awry.
Cheerful Weather for the Wedding - Julia Strachey - random library pick based on looks - that I loved.
Virtual Light - William Gibson - a good sci-fi tale of adventure in a future gone awry... again.
Miss Dahl's Voluptuous Delights - Sophie Dahl - bio / cook book what is not to love.
Breath - Tim Winton - sun, surf, drama done as Winton does best.
Snow Falling on Cedars - David Guterson - love and history all wrapped up in a mystery.
Bird Cloud - Annie Proulx - a bio focusing on home and nature by this superb American writer.
The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie - Murial Spark - a must read for any new resident of Edinburgh.
If anyone has any book recommendations for 2013 I would love to hear them.
