I hope everybody had wonderful holidays! The blog has been quiet this past week since I had Christmas to deal with and family and wrapping and dinners and just so much! I haven’t even had any time to read this past week. The only thing I was able to finish was the audiobook I was listening to as I drove. I was able to meet all my reading challenges this year, though it was kind of tough since I had a huge goal set for myself for my first time doing challenges. Here is my favorites recap for 2012!
Top Ten Books
Cinder – Marissa Meyer
I can’t even begin to express how much I loved this book! It’s awesomesauce on pages! Cyborgs, lunar people, Cinderella, a deadly plague, and Sailor Moon influences. How could this not turn out awesome?
Forbidden – Tabitha Suzuma
Oh man, this book! If I hadn’t been in public when I finished it, I would have cried my eyes out.
Incarnate – Jodi Meadows
Best book boyfriend ever and beautiful scenes!
Anna and the French Kiss – Stephanie Perkins
This book is the reason I even read contemporaries it was THAT good.
Daughter of Smoke and Bone – Laini Taylor
This has one of the most incredible worlds ever, plus it is my favorite audiobook so far.
Pushing the Limits – Katie McGarry
An emotional intense contemporary roller coaster and an amazing debut.
Alice in Zombieland – Gena Showalter
I loved this book so much more than I thought I was going to. Alice is an awesome heroine!
Pandemonium – Lauren Oliver
My anxiety level was so high by the end of this book, and it felt faster than Delirium.
The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
I couldn’t put this book down and it really hurt my heart what these kids had to go through.
Just for Fins – Tera Lynn Childs
I love this whole series and this one was definitely fun with lively characters.
