My Unforgettable Reads of 2012

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!

New Adult

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.


Women's Fiction

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.


Erotic Romance:

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?


Dark Erotic:

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.


Male/Male Romance:

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?
