WordPress Themes are soul of one’s blog and play important part in getting readers attraction. Either using free or premium themes doesn’t matters. The theme should have enough gorgeous readability and design to stick the readers and visitors, and make them come back. A perfect wordpress theme helps in returning visitors, because it creates a image in reader’s mind.
If we take example, recently The Next Web Magazine is redesigned, and I must say the use of Ajax and jQuery is perfect there. They are using the font Benton Sans, a premium font which looks good in the headings, but doesn’t makes good readability in the content area, it is too thin. What I mean to say with all this is, a perfect wordpress theme should be properly functioning theme.
We have compiled up new wordpress themes which are released in 2012 and they will definitely make you happy if you are searching for wordpress themes for your blog. These are hand picked wordpress themes which I personally like and hope you would too.

Marisa Portfolio WordPress Theme
Again from the themeforest marketplace, the theme author says its a portfolio wordpress theme but it looks more like a review theme, and I would say its a multi-purpose theme for wordpress users.
It can be used for blogs, portfolios and review purposes. It is a premium theme that has got custom widgets for various purposes, and custom shortcodes too. It isn’t responsive though.
Nexus Business WordPress Theme
It has got Google Webfonts support, SEO Ready and this is deeply responsive. It comes with 3 custom sliders which are customizable too. If you are searching for a business theme, then this is the one you should go for.
