Best Books I've Read in 2012 
1. Splintered by AG Howard. Yes it releases January  1st but I read it in 2012 and it was my favorite of the year hands down!!!!!

2. Grave Mercy by RL LaFevers. This was one fantastic historical fiction with a paranormal twist. I loved everything about this story! Assassins rock!

3. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. High Fantasy is one of my favorite genres and this makes my Top 10 all-time list!

4. The Crown of Embers by Rae Carson. Like my 3rd choice this series is on my all-time list! Rae is an amazing writer and Hector will definitely make my book boyfriends list!

5. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins. This was the first book of 2102 that I made all of my friends read. I mean I made them drop whatever they were reading to start this one!

6. Shine by Jeri Smith-Ready. Such an amazing ending to one of my favorite series. Many tears were shed.

7. Cinder by Marissa Meyer. A cyborg Cinderella set in a futuristic world yes please! This book was awesome!!!!

8. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. One of my favorite dystopian stories hands down and I loved that it was told in dual POV’s!

9. Masque of The Red Death by Bethany Griffin. Based on an Edgar Allen Poe tale with an awesome main character and two equally sexy leading men whom I still can’t choose between!

10. Unraveling by Elizabeth Norris. Set in a city near and dear to my heart with some of the best sci-fi storytelling set in a real world environment. Plus Ben reminds me of Max from Roswell and the dimension travel reminds me of Sliders J

Honorable Mentions

Renegade by JA Souders. A dystopian tale set in a lush underwater world with one of the most evil villain’s I’ve had the pleasure of reading about!

The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead. I love Richelle’s books and this one kicked my ass! The ending *gasps*

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I love Jennifer’s books and even though I just recently read Opal. Onyx was just a little bit more of a favorite.

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa. Loved this one! Love all of Julie’s books!

For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund. A modern retelling of Jane Austen’s Persuasion that rocked my world! It was a sci-fi/dystopian that I adored!

  1. Great List! Sweet Evil did make it onto mine as well.

  2. Oh yes! I adore Splintered. The only reason it isn't on my list is because I didn't add 2013's so I gave it an honorable mention instead :) love these picks

  3. I think I could have guessed that you would pick all of these books. :)

    My Top 10 Favs Post

  5. Sweet Evil was so good! I remember flying through it. Under the Never Sky was another one I loved too and probably would have made my list, but I read it at the end of 2011. Excellent book though. So excited for the sequel. So many books on your list I have been wanting to read so bad but just haven't had the chance to yet! I will definitely fix that in 2013. Thanks for sharing! :)

  6. Great list of books Cinder, Never Sky, Unraveling, Immortals! Loved them!

  7. Awesome picks! I absolutely LOVED well . . . most of your choices! Especially Shadow and Bone and Masque of the Red Death (HUGE Poe fan here!).

  8. Amazing list! I actually still haven't read any of these, although they're all on my tbr list!
