Top Ten Books I Read in 2012:
1. Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway
This book is a reason to love the YA genre, and Robin is such an awesome author. If you haven’t read Audrey, Wait!, don’t wait, go read it now! I also got to read an ARC of her next novel Also Known As, and I’m so excited to review it!
2. Dragon Slippers by Jessica Day George
I loved Dragon Slippers (the first in the Dragon Slippers trilogy). Dragons, wittiness, and adventure, oh my! Just look at that tagline on the cover: She wanted dragon gold. She got a pair of shoes.
3. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
This was such a cute story and I absolutely adored Jennifer’s writing style! Review coming soon. I’m so excited for Jennifer’s next book This is What Happy Looks Like!
4. Regarding the Fountain: A Tale, In Letters, of Liars and Leaks by Kate Kilse
5. Flush by Carl Hiaasen
6. The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie R. King
“I was fifteen when I first met Sherlock Holmes, fifteen years old with my nose in a book as I walked the Sussex Downs, and nearly stepped on him. In my defense I must say it was an engrossing book…” and so begins the first chapter of one of my favorite books!
7. Just One Wish by Janette Rallison
Janette Rallison is one of my favorite authors ever; her books are so hilarious and unique! Just One Wish is my favorite book of hers (although I adore all her books), I highly recommend it!
8. Don’t Expect Magic by Kathy McCullough
I loved, loved, loved Don’t Expect Magic! This book is so much fun and Kathy created a hilarious and sarcastic voice for her main character; I can’t wait for the next book in the series, Who Needs Magic!
My Final 2 Choices, Where I Bend the Rules a Bit by Listing 2 ARCs I Read This Year:
9. How My Summer Went Up in Flames by Jennifer Salvato Doktorski
How My Summer Went Up in Flames keeps finding it’s way onto all my recent TTT lists! When this book comes out next year, you will most definitely want to snap it up! I’m so excited for Jennifer’s next book, Famous Last Words!
10. Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt
Going Vintage isn’t out yet, but I received an ARC of it and I loved it! This book is lots of fun and absolutely fabulous, just like its cover! Definitely a winner for me, I can’t wait to review it!
