Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic is favorite reads from 2012.
The books everyone else liked, and I did too:
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater. I can't say enough good things about it.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. Very complex and real and not cliched. But sad.
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. (released in 2011) Great characters and setting and writing.
Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I thought this was so clever in its retelling the Cinderella story.
Everneath by Brodi Ashton. Another great retelling; this one of the Persephone myth.
Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi. I loved the world and the adventure. And the cannibals.
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. I don't think I'd ever reread this. But it really made me think, long after I'd finished it.
The slightly more obscure books I also really liked:
Back When You Were Easier to Love by Emily Wing Smith. (released in 2011) Interesting YA contemporary, especially if you're familiar with LDS culture.
The Reluctant Bachelorette by Rachael Anderson. One of my first adult contemporary reads. Very, very cute.
The Selection by Kiera Cass. I didn't get a chance to review this one, but I liked it so much more than I was expecting.
What did you read and love this year?
