Everyone's seen the Best Books Lists of the year, and it's the usual suspects: Junot Diaz, Alice Munro, Lauren Groff, Dave Eggers, Hilary Mantel, Gillian Flynn, and others. Book Riot, however, put together a list of five overlooked books of 2012. All five are books that look promising.
The list is a response to Slate's similar list of 20 books. As the title suggests, I haven't heard of any of them. Perhaps a few of these will make by tbr list for 2013.
