Top Five Reads of 2012 (So Far!)

Okay, it's the middle of the week and it's somewhat close to the middle of the year (July 2nd, 2012), so I decided to do my top five reads of 2012 so far. :) Aaand, in no particular order, here we go!


1. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh: Deliciously creepy with a well-written romance? Um, of course this would be one of my favorites! ♥ DO NOT judge this book by its cover. It's so so SO worth the read.

2. Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins: OHMAHGAWRSH. This book is so so good. It totally seems like a generic paranormal romance, but it's way different! I don't know how to explain it. (And Kaidan was definitely one element of this book that made it my favorite!)



3. Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta: If I had to say one book from here that was my TOP all time favorite, it'd have to be this book. Gorgeous prose, amazing world building, and OH THE TWISTS. PEOPLE NEED TO READ THIS.

4. Kill Me Softly by Sarah Cross: This is a book that people need to know more about. Despite the fact I found the heroine not to my liking, the whole thing was just so good. ESPECIALLY THE PROSE.


5. Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry: Um. YEAH. Me too guys, I never expected a contemporary to be on my top five list for 2012. At first glance, I totally thought I figured out the plot and it was just going to be a cliche novel. Eh.

BUT THIS. The characters made me FEEL. The plot made me FEEL. This whole damn book made me FEEL. <3 And needless to say, it was super addicting to read!

Hehe, Nevermore... I swear, I WILL read it! I just need to find time! Unfortunately, I haven't read any of these yet, but I will be reading Pushing the Limits soon, as it is a review book. Great list! I think I may be doing this kind of a post very soon. :)

Gianna said...

Is it just me or you changed your blog design a little? 0_0 Anyways! I'm super glad to say I've already read and also loved Sweet Evil. I still have to read Pushing the Limits, and WOW, it really has to be something! Nevermore and Finnikin on the rock are SO in my whishlist <3

Gianna said...

You and me = Kaidan's fangirls. <3 Pushing the Limits is like super amazing! I'm surprised you haven't gotten to it yet. :3 And GAAAH. Read Nevermore and Finnikin soon, bby! <3

Gianna said...

Nevermore was excellent! A must read :)

Gianna said...

You better, Jen. :D I hope you enjoy PTL~ And yaay! I'll check it out when you post it. :3

Gianna said...

I know right? Cover love~ <3 And PTL was amazing! <3 <3 <3 I've got mad love for Katie McGarry and Noah! Ahhh, Noah! :D

Gianna said...

I am ashamed to say that I've read NONE of these. D: However, I do want to read Pushing the Limits and Nevermore! :D I'm so glad you enjoyed those two, Gianna. This list makes me want to read them even more!

Gianna said...

OOOOOH! I just got a review copy of Pushing The Limits! EEEEEEEEE! OK. SERIOUSLY. SARAH IS NOW SERIOUSLY CRAZY EXCITED.
Also: UGH. UGH UGH UGH. I hate myself for not having yet read Finnikin. Something else I must fix. Clearly -___-

Gianna said...

Pushing the Limits AAAAAND Nevermore were simply amazeballs! When you do get the chance to read 'em, I'll be on the lookout for your reviews ;D

Gianna said...

OKAY SARAH READ IT ASAP. <3 You will fall in love with Noah Hutchins, I most DEFINITELY guarantee it! <3 <3 <3 And read Finnikin too! SUCH a good fantasy. ;D

Gianna said...

OK, seriously, done. I'm gonna read in the next month :D

Gianna said...

:D YEEESS! I really hope you enjoy those reads! :3 Finnikin was written by an Aussie author, so it was totes filled with epicness. ;D However, if you want sexy times, just read Pushing the Limits. <3

Gianna said...

Yup, it's written by Melina Marchetta. Melina's debut novel (it's from, like, the early nineties?) is assigned reading in every high school english class since forever. You'll be hard pressed to find an aussie that doesn't know her :)

And sexy times? PUSHING THE LIMITS! WOOT WOOT WOOT!
