Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander is her first book, and the best new urban fantasy I've read this year.

Bring Up the Bodies by Hilary Mantel is the best new historical fiction I have read, but it is a sequel to Wolf Hall which you really need to read first.

Taken by Robert Crais is the best new crime novel I have read this year. It is part of a long series, but you could read it stand-alone.

Of the three, Bring Up the Bodies and Taken are very good but not the best by their authors. So if I had to pick one, it would be Nightshifted.

Hah! I came here to post this one, but you beat me to it. I agree that Mantel has done better.

That's tough. After checking several publication dates, it would seem I'm a minimum of 2-3 years behind the times.

And I was so sure I'd read some brand-new books.

This isn't an awards ceremony. The OP is only looking for some 2012 recommendations, and War Maid's Choice might be just what he's looking for.

I have not read that many published in 2012 - probably the best of those I have read is Taken by Robert Crais. It is the 13th in the Elvis Cole series, though.

I think I'll sit in the shade with you. I've got plenty of "catching up" to do myself.

I'm currently reading R is for Rocket by Ray Bradbuy and then I've got In the Days of the Comet by H.G. Wells next on my to read list. I'd probably be even less current, but the ye's, olde's and doth's give me indigestion.

Put me down also for Wool - Omnibus Edition. I haven't read a huge number of books published this year, but this was one of them and it was fantastic.

I also really liked Ana Mardoll's Pulchritude and Simon Royle's Bangkok Burn which I believe were both published this year.
