So as it stands right now, I've read 41 books this year. Not quite there on my 50/50 Challenge, but close. And frankly, there are a few half-read or almost-finished-but-lost-interest books in the stack.
However, I thought today would be a good day to go through my read list from this year and pull out my top reads. These are the books that I can still remember when I look back at the list. Others, though I may have enjoyed them, fade and become murky. So the ones I can still remember certain characters and scenes get put on this list. Enjoy!
So I've been on a big New Adult kick lately and I've found some winners (including one I just finished this week and loved.)
Easy by Tammara Webber
Really likeable characters you were pulling for.
Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park
One of those you cannot stop reading. Worth it for the Facebook updates alone.
On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
Sexy and angsty and an Irish hero--hello.
More Like Her by Liza Palmer
Funny in parts, tearful in others.
(Warning - there is a school violence scene in this one)
The Reason Is You by Sharla Lovelace
A little romance, a little paranormal, and lots of memorable characters.
An Ordinary Girl by Barbara Elsborg
Very angsty and a tragic backstory but really enjoyed it.
The Principal's Office by Jasmine Haynes
Super smexy. And liked that it was an older heroine.
Sheltered by Charlotte Stein
Ignore the weird cover. LOTS of sexy tension in this one.
The Theory of Attraction by Delphine Dryden
A geeky, dominant hero. Need I say more?
The Angel by Tiffany Reisz
One of my favorites of the year.
Captive in the Dark by CJ Roberts
Very, very dark. I blogged about it here.
Hot Head by Damon Suede
Soooo much sexual tension. Gah. Loved this one.
Ten by Gretchen McNeil
Think And Then There Were None meets high school.
The Harrowing by Alexandra Sokoloff
College, empty dorm, ouija boards. Scary fun.
So those are my picks. What were some of your favorite reads of 2012?
