Top Ten Books I Read in 2012

Hosted over at the Broke and Bookish

2012 was a good year. And by that I mean I read some seriously fantastic novels! In no particular order, they are:

1. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
I cannot believe I put this book off until now to read because it is fantastic! Must hunt down some more Austen to read soon.....

2. Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan
I am in love. Is it weird that I want to marry this book because I love it so much? Because I do. I needed the sequel like yesterday.

3. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
This book is, hands down, my best summer read of 2012. I loved it so much I couldn't stop rereading it when I was done!

4. Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred
To say that I loved this book would be a huge understatement. This book had literally everything I've ever wanted in one story and I only wish it could have gone on forever!

5. Touch of Power by Maria V. Snyder
This was my first book by the infamous Maria V. Snyder, and after reading it, I totally get why everyone is in love with her writing! Her story is a perfect blend of fabulous characters, great plot, action, and a bit of romance.

6. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
This book crept up on me. I read it and liked it, but the more I thought about it, the more I fell in love with Stiefvater's beautiful prose and fantastically complex characters! I. Need. That. Sequel.

The Evolution of Mara Dyer

7. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
I'm pretty sure just about everyone's read this book so you probably know why this just had to be on my list. This was my very first John Green book and I am absolutely in love with his writing!

8. Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta
I never knew a book could gut me the way this book did. This book gave me so. Many. Feelings. I cried, I laughed, I cried some more, and then I experienced some serious angst when this book ended before I was ready to let it go.

9. Saving June by Hannah Harrington
Honestly I am just flabbergasted that this was Harrington's debut novel. Because it was absolutely amazing! It was beautiful and heartbreaking and full of snark (which I love)

10. A tie between Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare and The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Guyyysss, it was so hard to choose between these two! One the one hand, there was Will Herondale and all the heartbreak that CP put me through.... on the other hand, there was sheer suspense of Evolution, not to mention Noah and Mara.
So they both made the list.  ;p


  1. I really want to read The Fault in Our Stars, it's on my TBR list along with John Green's Looking for Alaska and Papertowns! Here’s my TTT list: http://aliceinreaderland.wordpress.com/2012/12/17/top-books/

  2. Loved The Fault in our Stars! Have you read Sense and Sensibility yet?

  3. Can you believe that the only one I've read is Touch of Power. Lots of them are on my tbr, but I need to get cracking.
    Happy reading,
