4 & 5 Star SciFi and Fantasy Reads of 2012

I thought it would be good to list the top rated (by me) books I read in 2012.  These include both books I read and listened to, as well as, novellas, short story's and re-reads.  I pulled this info from my Goodreads profile.  Needless to say, all of these are highly recommended.

 Overall, my 2012 reading was fantastic.  Started and caught up on a lot of series, both those I started in the past and new ones.  I am really looking forward to 2013 with so many must reads coming out (A Memory of Light, The Republic of Thieves, The Human Division, Abaddon's Gate, The Doors of Stone, and many more!).
