Top 12 Favorite Books of 2012

Sunday, December 23, 2012
It was incredibly difficult to pick only 12 of my favorites from this year's reads! Did anyone else have a hard time over this? These picks were all published this year and are listed in no particular order.
1. The Crimson Crown by Cinda William Chima 
This was a flawless ending to The Seven Realms series! ALL THE STARS FOR YOU, CINDA. My emotions were everywhere when I realized I'll never read any more stories about these characters. 

2. Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
I can't say too much or else I'll spoil, but my goodness this book was amazing. If you haven't read Daughter of Smoke and Bone yet then you should. Seriously. Go read it. 

3. The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater

4. Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers
I've been raving about this book to everyone throughout the whole year! I absolutely love EVERYTHING about Grave Mercy.

5. Arcadia Awakens by Kai Meyer
It's a mafia story people!

6. The Last Echo by Kimberly Derting 
CHILLS. I didn't think it could get any darker, but it did. I still look behind me when I walk because of this book. 
7. Something Like Normal by Trish Doller (review)
Slow claps for you, Trish Doller. Slow claps all around. 

8. Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard
I wanted to grab some plane tickets and go backpacking to all the beautiful places that Kirsten described.

9. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry
Noah & Echo <3 That is all.

10. My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Absolutely LOVED how family played such a huge part in the story.

11. Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein (review)
SO MANY EMOTIONS. I'm pretty sure a bunch of bloggers have been raving about this including myself. 

12. The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (review)

What were YOUR favorites of 2012?


  1. I enjoyed My Life Next Door as well, and I loved the role that family and politics played. And ugh, I really should read Code Name Verity some time soon. It keeps getting incredible amounts of praise, so I feel bad that I haven't.
    Great list and good luck picking a top 13 next year! (I too have a hard time picking my favorites and am not very excited to make my list, which I have not yet done.)

  2. Something Like Normal will be on my list, too! Of course, I haven't posted it yet.

    I read Pushing the Limits and My Life Next Door but didn't love either of them.

    The rest of these I haven't read, but they are all on my TBR pile. Clearly I've got a lot of catching up to do.

  3. Ahh great list, Vy! I loved Something Like Normal as well. I still need to read Mara Dyer. >.< So many of these are going on my 2013 list, like Grave Mercy, Code Name Verity, My Life Next Door.. DoSaB... yeah, I'm missing out, big time. Thanks for sharing! :)

  4. All the books on your list I've been wanting to read! I literally just finished The Evolution of Mara Dyer tonight and I totally loved it too! I just bought the first book in Daughter of Smoke and Bone series and am hoping to read it soon. I bookmarked this page so I can come back and make sure I've read all of them! Thank you for this awesome list, it looks like you had a great 2012 in reading! Happy Holidays! :)

  5. DoBaS and Wanderlove would totally make my list as well! I loved those two and The Raven Boys, Code Name Verity, and Pushing the Limits were all fantastic as well! Amazing list! :)

  6. I've read The Raven Boys, but you have several others here that are on my list to be read!

  7. I still have to read Grave Mercy and Cinda's books, lol. But I did love Pushing the Limits and I'm reading Mara next I think. Great list Vy!!!
