Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and The Bookish. Check out the upcoming topics to start posting!
Yey, another awesome topic! This time I get to look back at all the freaking awesome books I read in 2012, how will I ever choose??? As always, the covers are linked to Goodreads if you want to check them out :D.
- Daughter of Smoke and Bone – I’m sure this one will be on a lot of lists, but wow, what a great fantasy story! The writing, the characters, the plot, it was all just so awesome :D.
- Destiny Binds – This was a great indie urban fantasy that I found this year, and I can’t recommend it enough :D.
- The Stepsister Scheme – Such a fun fairy tale retelling with some really great kick-butt heroines with some character developments I did not see coming :D.
- Elantris – More Brandon Sanderson this year of course! I was super excited to read this standalone, it was wonderful, but now I really want Sanderson to write the sequel he’s always been talking about!
- Fire – I was weird and started with Fire instead of Graceling, but still really enjoyed it and am now listening to Graceling.
- The Emperor’s Soul – This one is a novella by Sanderson released this year, which I had to get my hands on, and it was just as wonderful as I expected! A full length Sanderson idea in an action-packed novella form :D.
- Under the Never Sky – This is one of the first YA books I read this year from the suggestions of all my wonderful blogging friends :D. It was so great and I’m super pumped for the sequel!
- Heart of the Dragon’s Realm – And now to the other end of the spectrum in more ways than one! I just finished this one recently and it’s a romantic fantasy, but still a lot of fun. I liked Heart of the Dragon’s Realm because it kept my attention by being happy and adventurous instead of stressful and angsty ;-).
- On The Edge – I love Ilona Andrews, and was excited to get started on the Edge books this year. They are just as awesome as expected.
- White Witch – This was a series that I started on Netgalley and have really enjoyed. I love the white witch urban fantasy idea and highly recommend this series if you want to try out a fun YA series ;-).
You’re turn! What are your top books this year?? I love these lists for new recommendations :D. Also if you are new around here and follow me, let me know and I’ll follow you back!
