Favorite Books of the Year

top 10

The year is coming to an end, in a few hours actually, and I thought I should make a wrap-up by listing my 10 favorite books of the year. It was a tough decision, and let me just note that picking only ten was seriously hard. Like really hard! …But here they are, in no particular order:

  1. On the Island by Tracey Garvis-Graves [Review]
  2. What a Boy Wants (What a Boy Wants #1) by Nyrae Dawn [Review]
  3. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
  4. Back to You by Priscilla Glenn [Review]
  5. Second Kiss by Natalie Palmer [Review]
  6. Easy by Tammara Webber [Review]
  7. Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles #1) by Kresley Cole
  8. Notes from the Blender by Trish Cook and Brendan Halpin [Review]
  9. Betwixt by Melissa Pearl [Review]
  10. Angelfall (Penryn & the End of Days #1) by Susan Ee

……………………………..

There is not much left to say. 2012 has been a wonderful year in some aspects, and not so wonderful in others, but I’m grateful for everything. May 2013 be our best book year yet! There are plenty of books to look forward to, so let’s get on with it! 😉

Q: What is the last book that made you cry? Tell us about the scene…

I don’t have to go far back at all to answer this question. How about just this morning?

Yup. I finished reading Back To You by Priscilla Glenn this morning, and man did it make me cry. And it wasn’t just one scene, actually. It was more like the whole book! LOL

It wasn’t a sad book, not at all. But just the situations made me cry. I was on the verge of tears for a good 20% at the end.

It was amazing, though. A favorite without a doubt. I really recommend it.

Now it’s your turn, what’s the last book that made you cry? Let me know in the comments!

Review: It’s in His Kiss by Caitie Quinn

Book: It’s in His Kiss

Author: Caitie Quinn

Published: June 2011

My Rating: 5/5

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Jenna’s been letting life pass her by as she works on her career. But, when she needs to do some research of this kissing kind, things may get a little more heated than she expected.
Research has never been so fun.

This 11k short has no vampires, shape shifter or scorching sex, but it might make you snort your diet Coke out your nose.

My Review:

[This is a short story and as such it is reviewed differently than full lengths books]

Eeek! How can such a short story be so damn good?!

It was beyond cute. And so funny!

Jenna is a writer. She writes a YA series and her character is in serious need of her first kiss. The only problem is Jenna can’t write it. Why? Well, write about what you know they say. If only Jenna’s first kiss wasn’t one she’d like to forget. Continue reading

Review: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor

Book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Daughter of Smoke and Bone #1)

Author:  Laini Taylor

Published: September 2011

My Rating: 5/5

GoodReads | Amazon | B&N

Book Description:

Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages—not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.

When one of the strangers—beautiful, haunted Akiva—fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?

My Review:

Oh. My. God.

When I finished reading this book I was an emotional mess, and now as I write this review I have to say I still am, and it’s just as intense. Can I say it again? Oh. My. God. Again? …Okay, no. I’m just kidding, but… Oh. My. God. Okay, I’m stopping now.
