TOP TEN of 2012: Best Books I’ve Read in 2012


Thanks to:  Jessica from Confessions of a BookaholicRachel from FiktshunJaime from Two Chicks on Books and  Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads for hosting TOP TEN OF 2012!

So today’s topic is 10 Best Books I’ve Read in 2012 (Doesn’t have to be released in 2012, just a book you’ve read in 2012). So this list is basically in order of when I read them because it would take hours upon hours for me to even assembly anything that might be a list of favourites in order, so ready…, set…, go!


(01) Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake; I Just ended up adoring this book despite not usually being into the spooky books. It was a perfect summer scare and romance.

(02) Cinder by Melissa Meyer; Definitely one of my favourite fairy tale retellings. Also the cover! Just gorgeous.



(03) Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins; So glad I discovered this series in 2012 so I didn’t have to wait for the last book!

(04) I’ve Got Your Number by Sophie Kinsella; Just so damn adorable especially the end!! (Also this was my first review on Bookmunchies! haha)

(05) Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo; Dry humour is definitely my style.

(06) Soulless by Gail Carriger;  It’s got vampires and werewolves (like Twilight which made me wary) but than I finally read it and damn if I didn’t fall hard for the witty humour and soulless fun.

Print(07) Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff; telepathic samurai girls & griffins in steampunk feudal Japan, ’nuff said.

(08) The Diviners by Libba Bray; Damn spooky and so awesome. Okay so this is definitely in  my top 3 favourite reads of the year. I can’t believe I almost never read this and forgot about it, but thankfully my unconscious self was smart enough to request it from the library (:

(09) Dizzy by Nyrae Dawn & Jolene Perry; something about this book hit all the the right notes with me, just fluffy fun and perfectly satisfying.

(10) Wallbanger by Alice Clayton;  This makes the list because I laughed so hard reading this book. It’s just ridiculous fun and Clive the cat wins all things.
