Filipino Friday (5): Celebrating the Best

Hello, dear readers! It's the last Filipino Friday! I am sure to miss this meme, as it's been really fun connecting with other Filipino bloggers, readers, and fellow book lovers through the posts. And I'm so excited for tomorrow, which is ReaderCon 2012!

This week, it's all about the best reads so far in 2012. Hmmmm... tough question, as I usually make my best and worst reads list at year end. However, since I already read 63 books this year, I'll try to come up with a simple list and one focusing on debut fiction.

What are your favorite books in 2012 so far? 
This year, I've read a lot of debut fiction which have turned out to be some of my favorite reads. Just click on the links for my review.
I'm currently reading another debut novel by Maria Semple entitled Where'd You Go, Bernadette? And it's one very funny novel. Very postmodern narrative, if I must say.

Have you read any awesome Filipino books in the year?
Unfortunately, I've read just a few Filipino books so far. But I did enjoy most of them. In fact, I think I'll come up with a separate post for that. I don't want to preempt the event tomorrow at ReaderCon, where the 1st Readers' Choice Awards will be held.

So that's it for Filipino Fridays. I can't wait for next year already! And see you tomorrow at the ReaderCon!
