Top Ten Tuesday: My Favorite Books of The Year (So Far!)

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  I'm excited to participate; after all, I make lists FOR EVERYTHING!  This week it's a freebie, so since the year is halfway over, I decided that I would share my favorite books of the year....so far!  I'm not limiting it to books that were published in 2012- it's open to any book that I've read this year. And in no particular order.......

1.  Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood - one of my favorite debuts

2.  Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard - a great read if you love to travel

3.  Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins - a fantastic paranormal

4.  The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin - one of my favorite paranormal reads of the year

5.  Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson - this is heartbreakingly good and one of my favorite contemporary reads

6.  Until I Die by Amy Plum - A fantastic fantasy series

7.  Dreamless by Josephine Angelini - One of my favorite fantasy series that includes mythology

8.  Gilt by Katherine Longshore - one of the best historical reads of the year

9.  Silence by Becca Fitzpatrick - Another great fantasy series involving angels

10.  My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick - one of my favorite contemporary reads of the year

What do you think of my list? What have been your favorite reads this year so far? Let me know! 


  1. YEAH!!!! You have some of my favorites on this list as well, namely Sweet Evil and The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer, I adored both of those. My Life Next Door was fantastic as well, I can't wait to reread all of them:) Fabulous picks Christina!

  2. Yessss! I LOVE THIS LIST!

    A few of my favorites that you have are Wanderlove, Gilt, and My Life Next Door, all excellent but for different reasons. :-)

    My TTT

  3. Love, love, love The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer and Wanderlove! Fabulous top ten, those are some fabulous books :)

  4. Born Wicked just missed my list. Too many great books this year. I need to read those other nine.

  5. Great list! So many on here that I want to read. This is the first time I've been to your blog and I absolutely love the layout!!

  6. Awesome list! I still haven't read Wanderlove or Born Wicked but I wasn't a fan of Mara! My Life Next Door was great though!

  7. These all sound so good! Thanks for sharing this great list :}. You might also enjoy J. Thomas Shaw's new medical thriller, The Rx Factor, which is fast-paced and very believable. You can find the author's website here: http://www.therxfactor.com/

  8. Sadly I haven't read most of the books on your list-though I plan to! I have Second Chance Summer currently checked out from the library and I especially look forward to reading My Life Next Door.

    My favorite YA books so far for this year would include Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter, Cinder by Marissa Meyer, How to Save a Life by Sara Zarr, Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers, The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead, and Smart Girls Get What They Want by Sarah Strohmeyer.
