I bet you were all thinking, just after Christmas: "Where oh where is the list of books Elliot read in 2012? It really brightens up the festive season."

Well, worry no more! Here it is, finally:

  • Lilith by George MacDonald
  • First Love by Ivan Turgenev
  • Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury
  • The Year of Our War by Steph Swainston
  • The Possessors by John Christopher
  • The Giant Under the Snow by John Gordon
  • The Bane of the Black Sword by Michael Moorcock
  • Greenwitch by Susan Cooper

  • Invitation to a Beheading by Vladimir Nabokov
  • The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin
  • The Wood Beyond the World by William Morris
  • Elidor by Alan Garner
  • The Curse of the Blue Figurine by John Bellairs
  • The Island of Dr. Moreau by H.G. Wells

Of those, I love the Jane Gaskell books, always like Barry Malzberg, really enjoyed The Possessors, Moorcock is always great, love Jack Vance, and Dandelion Wine had the best opening sequence. Lilith and The Wood Beyond the World were really heavy going.

Only 40 books. After going into hospital last September, I found it really difficult to read anything for some reason. I still haven't quite recovered my enthusiasm for books (I've only read 3 so far this year).
