Top 10 of 2012: My favorite books

Posted December 23, 2012 | 25 Comments


It’s that time of year!  I’m going to share my Top 10 books read in 2012.

I’m not putting these in any particular order, because it was hard enough narrowing the list down to 10.

The titles link to my reviews on Goodreads.



  • Every Day by David Levithan -I LOVE this book so much! I even bought it for a couple of people and they loved it too.
  • The Hallowed Ones by Laura Bickle – This was all kinds of creepy goodness!  I seriously wasn’t expecting how great this book would be.
  • Hounded by Kevin Hearne – This series rocks! This was actually published in 2011, but I’ve read the first 4 books in the series since March 2012.  And Atticus is swwooooon!


  • Partials by Dan Wells – Sooooo good!  I love Dan Wells.
  • The Uninvited by Liz Jensen – I’m so glad I got this one in before the end of the year, because wow, it was great!
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer – I almost didn’t read this one, but thankfully my love for Cinderella prevailed.  This was a  wonderful book.


  • Grave Mercy by Robin LaFevers – Another one I almost didn’t read, but ended up loving!
  • Everneath by Brodi Ashton – This turned me into a blubbering mess. ♥
  • Rage Within by Jeyn Roberts – This is the 2nd book in the Dark Inside series, and is one of my all time favorites!
  • The Twelve by Justin Cronin – Book 2 in The Passage trilogy, and it was so worth the 2 year wait!


  Other books that deserve a mention

Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

This Is Not A Test by Courtney Summers

Royal Street by Suzanne Johnson

Flesh & Bone by Jonathan Maberry

The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa


 Believe me, I could add more.

Are any of these on you Top 10?

      Maberry got a mention, but he’d be in the top 15 this year. I love Darynda, but but I loved these more. I’m so curious to see yours!

      I was going to do the whole week of Top 10 and have different categories, but changed my mind. Just kept it simple with the books I read in 2012. I can’t wait to see yours.

  1. Mine are posting later this week – The Hallowed Ones made it! Pushing the Limits and Royal Street would be in my Top 20, definitely. I’m sure if I’d have gotten to them, Every Day, Hounded and either of Cronin’s books would be there too but I was too far behind. 🙂

    Great, great list!!

      The Hallowed Ones was such a surprise. I loved it!You DEFINITELY need to read Hounded… you will love Atticus. Can’t wait to see your list.

      Merry Christmas!

  2. I love your list!! Much better than mine – I think I may have to revisit my rating system. Or maybe it’s just the books I read this year – oh I have no idea!! I read a lot of the same ones as you but I had a lot of 5 star ratings.

    And the reason why Atticus wasn’t on my list is because he was a re-read for me so he didn’t show up on my stats, I read the series initially LAST year. So I didn’t even have it come up on my radar (oops!). That’s what I get for relying on Goodreads 😀

    Merry Christmas!!

    Great choices — totally agree with Every Day, Cinder, Everneath, Grave Mercy and the Hallowed Ones. I haven’t read all the others!

  4. Great list, Christy. I’ve downloaded Hounded the other day so I’m looking forward to that. I almost picked up a couple of Justin Cronin’s books on my bookstore jaunt yesterday! Now I feel bad that I didn’t. Oh well.

    I hope you had a great holiday season, Christy. xoxo
