Top Ten Tuesday: Best of 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish where a new topic is given each week by the host blog and participants write up a corresponding list of ten things. Simple, fun, and great for those obsessed with lists. This week's topic is: Top Ten Books I Read In 2012!

It was so incredibly hard to whittle my list down this year...I've read so many incredible books. But I think I finally managed to do it...with only a couple runners up. xD


Runners Up:


Note: You might have realized by now that not all of these books were published in 2012...these are the top ten best books I READ in 2012. Just for clarification's sake. [:

  1. Every Day is one of my favorite books ever! Everyone loved Seraphina- I started it but never finished it. I need to get back to it ASAP. Pushing the Limits seems to be a common favorite. Great list!

    1. It was really impressive. I think its one of those books that you can really learn from with each reading. There's so much in that one little book. And I hope you get to finish Seraphina soon, it is a little slow in the beginning but it has some amazing world-building and characters. Thank you! :]

  2. I've only read one book on your list (Pushing the Limits) but it is on my TTT too. I loved that book so much. Noah and Echo. Oh my gosh!

  4. Seriously, Every Day is a total life changer. I haven't read Seraphina yet but I've heard good things and am looking for a new fantasy to delve into. Oh man and Masque of the Red Death... that's also on my TBR list. I'm a huge Poe fan, so I'm really intrigued to see how well it holds up.

    1. Masque of the Red Death was amazing and got me back into reading Poe again. I finished a collection of his poetry this year and I'm hoping to read the short story that the book was made from soon! :]

  14. Ooh, great great choices in Grave Mercy, Days of Blood and Starlight, and The Assassin's Curse - definitely among my top choices of the year, too!! Still need to read those other ones though. I've heard especially good things about Every Day! Seems like that one has been topping quite a few Best Of lists.

  19. Interesting books on your list. A lot of these I'll have to check out I guess. Some of them have been on my radar but I felt kind of "meh" about them. If they are top picks of the year though, I 'll have to check them out.
