The Last Holiday is among our Best Books for 2012 — a list that also features a book about the Godfather of Soul, a book from a doctor who died and met God in heaven (true story), as well as an Oprah Book Club 2.0 pick by debut author Ayana Mathis.

Our Best Books of 2012 List is both eclectic yet well-rounded, giving a little something for everyone.
