Top Ten Tuesday (10): Best of 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic. I’m a huge fan of lists, so this meme is right up my alley! 


I am posting this a little early in order to observe the Blogger Day of Silence tomorrow, December 18th.
This week’s topic is Top Ten Books I Read In 2012.  This was a hard list to make, but here they are, in alphabetical order by the author’s last name (I really couldn’t put them in any kind of ranking order!):


Crewel by Gennifer Albin (review to come soon!)
Beauty Queens by Libba Bray (my review)


Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta (my review)


Second Helpings by Megan McCafferty (my review)
Timepiece by Myra McEntire (my review)
Cinder by Marissa Meyer (my review)
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver (my review)
Some honorable mentions:  Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, Glimmer by Phoebe Kitanidis, Ten by Gretchen McNeil, A Breath of Eyre by Eve Marie Mont, and Gravity by Melissa West.  (You didn’t think I’d actually be able to whittle it down to just 10, did you?) ;)  There were tons of others that I really enjoyed as well, but I had to cut it off at some point!
What were the top books you read in 2012?  Let me know, or leave a link to your TTT in the comments, and I’ll stop by your blog!

    I loved Cinder and Pandemonium! They're both awesome books. I wasn't a fan of Beauty Queens, though. I can't wait to read Crewel and Jellicoe Road!

    Fault in Stars is on my list also and i'm not even a YA fan, I think that will past the test of time. I want to read Ten.

    I only read TFiOS from your list and really liked it. I still have to brave the rest :)

    I hadn't heard about the blogger day of silence. I looooved TFIOS. Second Helpings is my favorite Jessica Darling novel and I love a ton of books on your list. I'm listening to Beauty Queens right now.

    I enjoyed reading Cinder as well and I have preordered Scarlet already! It comes out in February. I think I might have to reread Cinder just as a refresher. Or I could read your review on it which was very good also by the way. This book made my list.
