Best Books I’ve Read in 2012





I'm not going to agonize over the order so in no particular order these are my favorite books of the year!

Out of the 91 books I read this year (according to Goodreads)

MY TOP 10

I was VERY close to giving up on this series but Deity was so good that I'm dying to read the sequel. This is one book Half Blood fans should not miss out on!
If there's one contemporary novel YOU NEED to read this year it's this one! Pushing the Limits breaks your heart and puts it back together again! I cannot wait for the sequel!

THIS NOVEL IS NOT YA.
This is the 5th book in the series and it was a nice surprise. I had VERY low expectations because the previous book was AMAZING and I didn't think anything could surpass that... I was wrong.
CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK #6 i.e Magic Rises.

I read both If I Die (Soul Screamers #5) and Before I Wake (Soul Screamers #6)  this year itself but If I Die was THE BEST BOOK IN THE ENTIRE SERIES and I'll always cherish this book forever. 

I AM OBSESSED WITH THIS BOOK! I've read it atleast twice and re-read my favorite parts atleast 10 times! I was suffering from Storm withdrawal (because I had lent my copy to SOOO many people) and I convinced my friend to lend me her copy of the sequel, which is also pretty great, just so I could be in the Elemental world again.Definitely worth a read!
THIS BOOK IS NOT YA
I LOVE THIS BOOK! I've never been so fascinated by a book before especially one that's not YA or for children. I discovered a wonderful genre called Urban Fantasy through this book.
Moon Spell by Samantha Young.
Samantha Young is an AMAZING author! This book is an indie novel but it's SO GOOD! I wouldn't be surprised if it got picked up by a publishing house soon (I mean On Dublin Street got picked up so there is a chance). This book is definitely one of the most amazing werewolves novels I've read! The kindle edition is dirt cheap so if you're looking for an entertaining read this Christmas GO 
BUY THIS!


Another AMAZING Kate Daniels book I read this year! This book is a gamechanger! LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT! Definitely worth the wait.

I had read this book before it got picked up by Penguin but this was an AMAZING indie novel so I'm sure the Penguin version will be just as good if not better ! It's till pretty cheap for Kindle I wonder if Penguin will increase the price.... Anyways Reid was always my least favorite character in the series but in this novel I actually liked him! So kudos to Ms. Webber   for that! 
I love fairy tale retellings and Robin Hood has always fascinated me! This book gave a nice and unexpected twist to the story we all know so well and I loved the characters! The female characters are great in this novel and the feminist in me was very satisfied with this book :)

HONORABLE MENTIONS
I have only 4 honorable mentions (I can't leave them out!)
The writing style and the characters were unforgettable.The story unfortunately was.

THIS BOOK IS NOT YA!
I was very disappointed with the latest Cat and Bones novel but this new series had me on my toes!

This is not the type of book I usually read or enjoy but I really liked it.


Poison Taster and Assassins with magic thrown in as well.. Need I say more?
