Scully Love Promo’s Best of 2012 Lists

best5listsWell, it’s that time again.

Bloggers love to make ‘Best of Lists’ at the end of each year and I don’t usually do it, but I thought, well why the heck not?  I didn’t read as many books, watch as many movies, attend as many concerts or write as many reviews this year as I have in the past, but that’s because I worked for myself full time in 2012 and when you’re self-employed, there just aren’t enough hours in the day!  However, when I do want to unwind, I turn to the things I love the most for entertainment: music, books and film.

So here are my top 5 favourite CDs, concerts, books, movies and television series that I experienced in 2012 (although they might not have been released in 2012):
