Today the topic of Top 5 Sundays at Larissa’s Bookish Life is Fave Books from 1st Half of 2012.

This was pretty hard. Most of the books I’ve read this year have been on the 3-4 stars (from five) quality.

1, Theresa Frochock: Miserere
An intense story of betrayal and redemption set in an alternate Woerld.

2, Elizabeth Bear: The Sea Thy Mistress
The conclusion to the Edda of Burdens series which is very different from the previous books and managed to greatly surprise me.

3, Cherie Priest: Ganymede
Another great book in the Clockwork Century which takes place in New Orleans.

4, Carolyn Crane: Mind Games
I really liked the world building and most of the secondary characters.

5, Christopher Golden and Nancy Holder: The Lost Slayer Omnibus
This was pure fun! A Buffy book set in a grim alternate universe.
