Top 10 of 2012 ~ Best Books I've Read in 2012

~Best Books I've Read in 2012~


Incarnate (Newsoul, #1)

The same souls reincarnating over and over living so many different lives. I had the longest discussion about it with my friend that hasn't even read this book. LOL A thought that intrigued me for months after I finished reading.

Every Day

I still have yet to write a review for this because I could never put into words what an amazing person and life A has lead. Just pick up the book and experience a day in the life of A!

The Immortal Rules (Blood of Eden, #1)

I read this when The Hunger Games came out and I almost skipped the movie to keep reading. What will happen with Zeke? Will she see Kanin again? Is she a monster? I just couldn't put it down!

Touch (Denazen, #1)

One of those books I bought right away but then put off but once I started I couldn't put it down. Totally feel in love with the naive but sweet, killer Kale!

The Duff: Designated Ugly Fat Friend

I was told to read this book forever but since I shy away from contemporaries I put it off. Well when I finally picked it up I devoured it! And it has one of the few bad boys that I actually like. Wesley Rush!

My Life Next Door

Sweet boy next door romance with no love triangles! This book made me almost want to change my blog name!

Before I Wake (Soul Screamers, #6)

Tod! enough said!

The Golden Lily (Bloodlines, #2)

Adrian will forever be a top pick for me! He continues to amaze me with every new book.

Pivot Point (Pivot Point, #1)

This isn't out yet but be sure to add it to your TBR list! Being able to see both outcomes to any upcoming choices! If only that actually made choices easier...

Greta and the Goblin King (Mylena Chronicles, #1)

A sexy goblin?! Who knew! But Isaac definitely made this a must read!

Falling Kingdoms (Falling Kingdoms, #1)

And the cheating already begins! My 11th pick but I just recently finished this and was so impressed! I have a new love for fantasy. Not to mention it had such great drama and backstabbing treachery!

Unravel Me (Shatter Me, #2)

Oh crap wait! I forgot this one too! Oh the things Warner did to me! So I must include this too!

Top Adult/New Adult Books I've Read in 2012

On the Island   I've Got Your Number   Blood Bath & Beyond   Easy   My Heart for Yours   Here I Go Again   Flight (The Crescent Chronicles, #1)

  27. I had seen a lot of mixed reviews of Incarnate so I never picked it up. I was super excited for Falling Kingdoms but then I saw a bunch of mediocre reviews and it got me worried. I'm a huge fan of fantasy though and I have a copy coming so I'm going to read it still so I'm so happy to see it on your favorites! A ton of great books of your list! Loved The Immortal Rules!

  28. I Loved Loved Loved Incarnate! But I read it last year, so it couldn't make my top ten! The dance part, with the costumes and everything was just so beautiful and the theme also left me thinking about it for months! The Duff was great too! And the rest of your books I have on my tbr...I really must read them soon, especially if they're in your top 10 of the year :) Great picks!

  29. I loved The Immortal Rules, Falling Kingdoms and I've Got Your Number as well.
