Top Ten of 2012

These are listed in no particular order, but Ready Player One was my absolute favorite of the year! Also, this is a list for books I’ve read in 2012, not that they were published in 2012 (though most were). I decided to go eye-candy style, and cover images are linked to Goodreads for easy adding to TBRs! (Note: I have no idea why these covers won’t line up nicely. I tried and tried to get them to play nice but eventually gave up…)

    TFIOS and Scorpio Races are tied for number 1 for me this year. They are so so so so so good! I’m actually listening to TFIOS right now, because I couldn’t go a full year without rereading. Love it so much. I also agree that Ready Player One is fantastic!!!! And I really want to read Something Like Normal and In Honor! Love your list.

    I have a few of these on my must read for 2013 list, Pandemonium is at the top of that list! I heard The Scorpio Races and In Honor were awesome, too.

    Totally loved Insurgent and Unraveling. Great picks for 2012. Can’t wait to see what you’re looking forward to in 2013.

    It’s so frustrating when you can’t get the images to line up correctly, but I still think this looks fantastic. I have read TFIOS, and In Honor. TFIOS is a definite favorite. A lot of these books are on my TBR list, too.

    Thanks for sharing your favorites 🙂
