In most blog tours, a single author appears on a variety of blogs, moving around the Internet and allowing the readers of those blogs get to know the author.

In the Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour, the authors stay on their blogs and it's you, the reader, who takes the tour.

Each month, our participating authors from around the world agree to blog on a single topic throughout the month. By following the links in each month's post, you'll discover a whole bunch of new authors in a variety of genres, levels of experience, and styles of writing.

We hope you enjoy the trip and come back each month for a new spin around the globe.

Favorite Books of 2012

I don't tend to follow the bestseller lists and keep up with all of the new "must read" books by Oprah. I'm a mother of a two year old and wife to my Dear Husband. I read what appeals to me in the moment and if I don't get to the latest books of 2012 until 2013 well, that's just the way it goes!

I debated making a list of books I think I should have read or a list of books I actually might have liked from the past year but decided against either of those. Instead my list of books is one of books or series that I am currently reading (or rereading in some cases.)

Books From 2012 To Read Before the Mayan Apocalypse

I will admit that I didn't do quite as much reading this year as I usually do.

But here it is anyway, my favorite books of 2012.

LC favorites of 2012

When I read our month’s topic, I hoped that I would at least have some good books to add. I have done enough reading, but it hasn’t really involved reading entire books. Mostly it has been an article here or chapter there…

There have been few books though, which have been rather nice surprise.

Zette's Favorite books

I have a confession: my reading fell way off this year, partly because of work stuff. I was so focused on getting things done that reading dropped to the last thing on the list, and usually slipped off it without me even noticing. Work and write and work some more -- anyone who has spent time in chat with me sees how things usually go.

...A Few of My Favorite Things...

Favorite books - we all have ‘em, and this month’s Forward Motion Merry-Go-Round Blog Tour is about my favorite books of 2012. I signed up for the Goodreads 2012 Reading Challenge, setting it at fifty books. I reached my goal and then some! (I really need to update this year’s reading list — it’s stuck at September.)

Head over to my blog, In Shadows to see my top five books of the year!
