Best Fiction Books of 2012: Free Samples

This time of year the web is full of Best Book lists from everyplace imaginable.  Best mysteries, best non-fiction, best teen books, and best historical fiction to name a few. 
I've taken a sampling of the best fiction books of 2012 from lists by Publisher's Weekly, The Christian Science Monitor, The Washington Post, Esquire, The New York Times, and Entertainment Weekly.  Each of the following titles were all chosen by two, three, or four of the previous publications.  So, the experts have spoken and you can check out all of their great choices here at the library.
