Top 10 of 2012 Day 1: Top 10 Books of 2012!

Hosted by Two Chicks on Books, Fiktshun, Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads! Every day this week has a new topic, either favorite books or covers of 2012 and more! Stay tuned for more Top 10 lists!

And just because I can…I am adding 2 more to my top 10. It’s so dang hard to just pick 10!

  1. Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout: Hands down my favorite book of 2012. I swooned, I laughed, I cried like a baby…this book had everything and more!
  2. Poison Princess by Kresley Cole: I just read this a couple days ago, and it is still dominating my thoughts! It had such an interesting premise, and I couldn’t put it down.
  3. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: After devouring the first book, I finally got my greedy little hands on this sequel and it did not disappoint.
  4. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: This book was so dang addicting and hot. It is tied with Flawed for my favorite contemporary novel this year!
  5. Valkyrie Rising by Ingrid Paulson: After reading amazing reviews, I knew I had to read about sweet Tuck and kick-ass Valkyries!
  6. Avow by Chelsea Fine: sigh…I am so sad this series is over, but it definitely went out with a bang!
  7. Something Strange and Deadly by Susan Dennard: I love the setting of this book, and I definitely have a thing for Daniel!
  8. Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter: Cole is such a protective sweetheart, and I loved how the zombies were portrayed. I cannot wait for the next book!
  9. Flawed by Kate Avelynn: This book is deep, heart-wrenching, and it will stay with me for a long time. I don’t think I have ever cried as much reading a book.
  10. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins: This is definitely my favorite take on Nephilim, angels, demons, and hunky British dudes of the whole year!
  11. The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead: Adrian Ivashkov is my mannnnn. So many Syndrian feels! I want The Indigo Spell! Like yesterday.
  12. Insurgent by Veronica Roth: As my all-time favorite Dystopian, it just had to be included on my list. I adore Tobias!

  5. Alice in Zombieland seems to be a popular pick today! Guess that means I should get my butt in gear and read it. LOL Thanks for sharing your list!

  6. I added two more too! It is hard! The only one we have in common is The Golden Lily but wooo! It is a great one! Adrian! Opal, Pushing the Limits and Sweet Evil were close calls. Really enjoyed those. I still need to read The Evolution of Mara Dyer, Poison Princess, Insurgent, and Alice in Zombieland.
