Top Ten of 2012!

This year I have read a total of 128 books. I have laughed, cried, and bonded with the characters throughout my reading. I want to share with you, the top ten that impacted me the most and I hope you enjoy and find the time to check them out!


 
1. CAMP
by Elaine Wolf

Camp is a story on bullying but it comes from many different sources and has a strong main character. In the end, it'll leave you truly touched, and shocked with the outcome of it all.


2. WONDER
by R.J. Palacio
 
 
In Wonder, you meet a boy named August that will take you into his life, and show the true meaning of being strong and courageous. He left me in awe at his bravery to take on anything that comes his way.
 
 
3. NEVER EIGHTEEN
by Megan Bostic
 
 
In this book, the main character shows how to be completely selfless and reach out to make a difference in others lives, to better themselves before he is bedridden on his deathbed.
 
 
4. TELL ME A SECRET
by Holly Cupala
 
 
 
A teen having to measure up to her deceased sisters footsteps, ends up getting pregnant and struggles throughout her pregnancy, feeling alone despite her family. Finding love and compassion where she least expects, makes all the difference.
 
 
5. BEAUTIFUL CHAOS
by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl
 
 
 
A truly wonderful series that is dark and addictive, Beautiful Chaos is the third book in a four part series. I enjoyed this one the most, and I encourage everyone to check it out!
 
 
 
6. SPLINTERED
by A.G. Howard

 
 
 
Oh, so enchanting and delectable, Splintered tells a tale a tad bit different then the same ol' Alice in Wonderland story that we all know so well.
 
 
 
 
7. DARKNESS BEFORE DAWN
by J.A. London
 
 
 
 
I loved the main character and her braveness to stand up to the villain in this series. I also loved how she could open up and let her heart grow fond to someone that she most certainly shouldn't. Darkness Before Dawn is mysterious, and gripping!
 
 
 
 
8. ASUNDER
by Jodi Meadows
 
 
 
Jodi Meadows is so amazingly talented! I just love this series to pieces. It's full of uncertainty, hope, and so much more.
 
 
 
 
9. DARK COMPANION
by Marta Acosta
 
 
 
Marta Acosta has written a story so unlike others, so full of energy, mystery, and unexpected events. What you think will happen, doesn't and what you never imagined comes to light. With such wonderful characters, it's hard to put down.
 
 
 
 
 
10. THE FARM
by Emily McKay
 
 
 
 
The Farm slightly reminded me of Darkness Before Dawn, yet had a different storyline and unique characters. I loved Emily's writing and her characters where just amazing!
 
 
 
 
I hope you enjoy and find the time to check them out!

  2. Great list. I still need to read a lot of those, but I did love Splintered and I just started the Caster series and am almost done with Beautiful Creatures.
