In Part 1 of my 2012 Year in Review, I went back and reviewed my January 1, 2012 post 'What I'm Looking Forward to This Year.'

I had a really hard time ranking all of these TV shows, books and movies. I'm sure if I was compiling this list two weeks ago or two weeks from now, maybe I'd put some of them in a different order. But the above list is give or take where I'd rank everything that I recommended in 2012.

Now that I've got 2012 behind me, it's time to look ahead at what's to come in 2013. As I did when I launched this blog a year ago with a post highlighting what I'm looking forward to the most, I'll do the same for this year. So keep your eyes peeled for that to be up soon.
