2012 in books



N.B. I only started tracking my books midway through 2012 and added some retroactively, so this list is both incomplete and achronological. Thinking about where I was and what I was doing that year, I'd estimate the actual figure to be more like 20.

  1. Annie Ernaux - La femme gelée (4/5)
  2. Anne Hébert - Les fous du bassan (2/5)
  3. Irène Némirovsky - Suite française (3/5)
  4. Hilary Thayer Hamann - Anthropology of an American Girl (1/5)
  5. Virginie Despentes - Mordre au travers (2/5)
  6. Philip Oltermann - Keeping Up With the Germans: A History of Anglo-German Encounters (3/5)
  7. Haruki Murakami - A Wild Sheep Chase (3/5)
