Gay Romance Challenge: 2012 Result

December is the right month for doing lists ;-) and so I though to post the 2012 Gay Romance Challenge result a little earlier, so that if you want to use it for your Christmas shopping, you are in time in doing so! BIG CONGRATS to Damon Suede and Jay Bell sharing for the second year in a row first and second position with Hot Head and Something Like Summer!!!

This is the second year I'm doing the Challenge, and I can proudly said that I have read ALL books in 2011 List (the first 100 Best Selling Gay Romances of 2011, you can find the list here: http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/1483615.html). This list and the previous one is an yearly average of the monthly bestsellers list in Gay Romance as per this Amazon link: Bestsellers in Gay Romance. At today but I read 45 out of 100 books, not bad, but less than last year :-( Real life took his toll this year.

These are the 2012 results, and to determine the 100 books I simply considered all books that appeared at least once in the monthly Bestsellers list and gave them a rate equal to their position; of course if a book appeared more than once they received a bonus point for each time they made the list and their position is the average position plus the bonus. So this is the final list (in bold the books I read with link to the review):

1) Hot Head by Damon Suede
