Best Books of 2012!

Hey guys!

2012 is almost over, but I’m ready for the awesomeness that is to come with 2013! I am looking forward to all the wonderful new books that will be released in the New Year.  While I didn’t get to read as much in 2012, I wanted to share the books that I did read and enjoyed this year. Here’s my list!

1. Easy by Tammara Webber  - Easy has been out for a while now, but it's a book I didn't hear about until recently. I decided to read it right away, and I am SO glad that I did. I loved the story, and the characters, especially Lucas. He has earned a top stop on my most swoon-worthy guys list. Hmmmmm.  This is a book that I will definitely re-read over and over again.

2. Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire  - While I had some issues with Beautiful Disaster, I still adored the book. It's a book that stuck with me long after I read it, and that doesn't happen very often. Travis was such an interesting character, and I can't wait to read his story in Walking Disaster, out in 2013.

3. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGary  -  I read Pushing the Limits because I had heard that it was similar to Beautiful Disaster.  While it was similar in some aspects, it was unique enough to to be different. This was a very enjoyable read for me.

4. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin  -  Michelle Hodkin never ceases to amaze me with her writing, and I can't get enough of the Mara Dyer series. The ending of this book left me speechless, and dying to get my hands on the next book. Not too much longer now!

5. Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver - Lauren Oliver is one of my most favorite writers of all time. Her writing is absolutely amazing. She definitely left me hanging at the end of Pandemonium, and I can't wait to get my hands on Requiem!

6. Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin  - This book was recommended to me by Kathy at A Glass of Wine, and I am SO glad that I read it!  It was definitely unique, and so different than any book I had read up to that point. The characters we all flawed and fascinating. I'm eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

7. Spell Bound by Rachel Hawkins  -  I really love the Hex Hall series, and was so sad to see it come to an end. (Thank goodness for the spin-off series!) I have laughed so much while reading this series, and I love when that happens. I can't wait to read more by Ms. Hawkins.

8. Article 5 by Kristen Simmons  -  This book was one of the more realistic dystopian books that I have read so far.  It really made me stop and think, I could definitely see this happening in real life. I'm dying to get my hands on Breaking Point to see what's going to happen next.

9. Dreamless by Josephine Angelini  -  Ms. Angelini is another of my most favorite authors ever. In Dreamless, she once again drew me into the world she created and left me completely speechless. Poor Helen, the girl went through so much in this book. I can't wait to find out what happens in Goddess!

10. Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood  -  This is another book that was introduced to me by Kathy at A Glass of Wine.  It is another book that was unique enough to really stand out for me as well.  The storyline was great, and I'm practically in love with Finn.

Now that I've shared my favorite books of 2012...
Bring on the books of 2013!!!

Please leave a link to your favorite list if you have one as well!


  1. Great list, you have three books I can't wait to read (Masque of the red death, Article 5 and Born wicked) Spellbound was a good book indeed.


  2. I definitely agree about Pushing the Limits and Born Wicked! Those two were so awesome. I actually didn't like Easy all that much, but I know a ton of people who've included it in their top books of 2012 as well. Great list :)

  3. I've only read Dreamless from this list. I do have a couple of the others but still not got to them :(

  4. A great list, you've got quite a few contemps that I keep hearing are super. I've just not mustered the courage to try them out yet. Contemporary fiction is not on the top of my comfort list, I do enjoy the reads every once in a while though. I've really wanted to read Article 5 and I NEED to read Pandemonium and especially the conclusion to Hex Hall series (after all Demonglass ended on a NASTY cliffhanger). Great list and happy blogging in 2013.

  5. I am obsessed with Beautiful Disaster! OBSESSED! I totally get what you mean when you say it's a story that stuck with you. I haven't been able to pick up a book since i finished it.

  6. I only read East recently but I loved it and can totally see how it made your list!! I loved the first mara dyer book so well happy to see it made your list too, can't wait for evolution to be released here

  8. Of these, I've only read and enjoyed Pandemonium and Masque. Article 5...I really need to read this soon! Have a great year :)

  9. Ohh great picks! Loved Pandemonium and The Evolution of Mara Dyer so much. Can't wait to the third books in both series!!!
