Today’s suggested posting topic is “Best of 2012”
Share some of your favorite books so far this year, and/or the the books being promoted at BEA that you hope will end up among your favorites for the year!


Need help finding a book? We've got you covered! We'd highly recommend taking a look at one of our Partner's site, Edelweiss! This is a site where you'll find books and catalogs from dozens, if not hundreds, of publishers including a large number in attendance at BEA this year.

Curious about how Edelweiss works? Stay tuned! Later today Joe from Edelweiss will be sharing a brilliant guest post all about their digital egalley process and how to utilize the site.

Still having problems finding just the right books for that "best of the best" post? Why not check out Book Expo America's line up of authors as well as our Sponsors Page? There's bound to be quite a few you'd love to read this year!

Also remember, today is the FIRST day during Armchair BEA that you can participate in a fantastic Twitter party to discuss all of these fantastic books you have on your lists and much much more! Don't miss it!

  7. I'm sure your "crem della crem" is a joke on the French original "crème de la crème", right? The teacher in me had to check. ;)

  11. I love Edelweiss. I had signed uo long ago... and forgot I did.. and when I went back to it I was already registered & it was a bit twilight zone.
    I've gotten a few titles off of them, and they run a really easy-to-use site that doesn't seem to slow down to a snail's pace ;)

  12. I'm looking forward to the most anticipated books of the year! I can't wait to read everyone's favorites.

  16. My favorite books (so far) this year: cupcake @ cupcake's book cupboard. I look forward to discovering more great books!

  17. I was amazed. I've read 166 books this year and only have 4 books I gave 5 stars to. None of those were published in 2012, though. Even though I've been trying to read more new releases, none of those books were 5 stars. So, I separated my "Best of" 2012 books into categories like best mystery, best discovery, etc.
