I’m Back!

I took a little blogging break, but I’m back! (I know, I know–you haven’t been holding your breath).

My favorite end-of-year activity is perusing all the best of lists, making notes of all the movies and books I need to get to. In the spirit of awards season, I submit my 2012 nominees.

Best Movie I Saw in 2012

Life of Pi (As good as the book–I swear.)

Best Movie I Saw in 2012 That I Thought I Might Hate But Actually Loved

Les Miserables  (Imagine I just sang the title.)

Best Documentary I Saw in 2012

Queen of Versailles (I wanted to hate these horrid, vapid people with zero awareness of the world around them, but they were oddly charming.)

Best TV Show I Discovered in 2012

NYC Prep (How did I miss this gem when it first came out?? It’s about hateful rich kids! Who say sassy things about each other! And go to dinner parties!)

Best TV Show of 2012

Downton Abbey (I’m over Bates this season and into Branson.)

Best Book I Read in 2012

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn (It’s loaded with delicious plot twists. You better block out a weekend for this one).

Best YA Book I Read in 2012

The Miseducation of Cameron Post by Emily Danforth (The author treats issues of same-sex attraction with thoughtfulness and sensitivity. And she’s really honest. )

Best Blog Reader Who Never Stopped Asking Me When I Was Going to Update My $#@*& Blog Already

April Durrant (hi, April)

So what about you? What made your Best of 2012 list?

    I love your list! Alas, I feel best-of lists are too overwhelming, so I appreciate that you distilled it down, ’cause I never read them. Also, I really need to read Gone Girl.

    I think you need to read Gone Girl. Haley hated it, and is never taking my recommendations again. (Also, I tried to be a matchmaker for her and failed miserably, so I’m low on her list of reputable sources at this point.)
