Top Ten Tuesday: 2012 Favorites

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

This week's topic is....
Top Ten Reads of 2012
This year I read some INCREDIBLE books. I've limited my selection to 10 but there are def others that I would include under my favorite category for the year.
I'm not going to go into each book separately. They are all favorites because they are all amazing books.  Most importantly they all made me feel lots of feelings. They have it all. For each one,  I connected with the writing, the characters and the story. Each pulled me in and I didn't want to let go.

    1. The Book Thief is definately amazing. I mean, a book narrated by death I would expect nothing less. OH MAN I FREAKING LOVED The Summer series!! soo much. I'm most likely going to reread that series come summer. It's just too perfect.

  7. Nice list! Well, I haven't read all of them, but I love DIVERGENT, UNDER THE NEVER SKY and THE BOOK THIEF. I'll have to check out some of the others you suggested.

    Glad to have found your blog :)

  8. YES, you KNOW I love seeing Daughter of Smoke & Bone and Days of Blood & Starlight! ;) Same goes for Divergent. The Infernal Devices Series is a must read for 2013 and The Scorpio Races is also on the old reading list!
