Top Ten Books of 2012





 




 Top 10 of 2012 is featured over at Confessions of a Bookaholic, A Life Bound By Books, Fiktshun, Two Chicks on Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads  . I think it may be cohosted over at other sites, which I will look into so I can recognize them too. It will be featured on my blog all week. I thought this would be an amazing way to finish up my year. Hopefully this will help you guys learn more about me and my reading tastes.
 
This week's topic is my Top 10 Books of 2012. Unfortunately, I already answered this in a Top Ten Tuesday meme, which you can read here. Because of this I decided to still my top ten books but from the category of paranormal/ supernatural books. Keep in mind that they weren't all published in 2012 but I did read them in 2012.

 

Top Ten Supernatural/ Paranormal Books of 2012 


 
 
From Bad To Cursed by Katie Alender: This is a creepy story about ghosts. Yet, it was a creepy story in a good way and I can't wait to finish the trilogy.
 
Vanish by Sophie Jordan: The main character of this story is a dragon. Not just any dragon but a special dragon, and she gets into a lot of trouble because of it.
 
The Golden Lily by Richelle Mead: This is a series about vampires. But it's different from any vampire series I've ever read and one of my favorite books for a reason.
 
Rapture by Lauren Kate: This was the finale in a series about fallen angels. Adventurous yet romantic with heart- stopping action, it was everything I was looking for.
 
The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin: This book reminded my of the movie Inception. It messed with my mind and left me desperate for more.
 
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater: The thing I liked best about this book were the Raven Boys themselves. They were like a family and the best friends anyone could ever ask for. It didn't hurt that Maggie Stiefvater wrote it either.
 
Endlessly by Kiersten White: This was the perfect ending to a stupendous trilogy about a war with paranormal beings.
 
Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer: This is the ending to a trilogy about an alpha werewolf. Her name was Calla and she was a strong heroine who would die for her pack.
 
Until I Die by Amy Plum: This book is about zombies- pretty zombies, but still zombies.
 
Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor: This is a book about an otherworldy war with angels. It had a fantastic plot and writing. I NEED the next book. Now.
 


Top Ten Fantasy/Dystopian Books of 2012

 
 
 
Soulbound by Heather Brewer: Kaya is the strongest heroine I've ever had the pleasure of reading about. She never backs down and makes the most of herself despite the circumstances thrown at her.
 
Seraphina by Rachel Hartman: This is a book about dragons. The thing that sets it apart from other dragon books is that the dragons can shape shift into humans.
 
Scarlet by A. C. Gaughen: This is a fairy-tale retelling of Robin Hood. One of Robin Hood's band is a girl. And she has a secret past that's catching up to her.
 
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo: This is one of the most unique fantasies I've ever read. What makes it even better is the writing, which is eloquently written.
 
Grave Mercy by Robin LaFever: It's about a girl trained by nuns... to be an assassin.
 
Cinder by Marissa Meyer: This was a dystopian that happens to have a Cinderella element to it. However, it's not what it seems.
 
Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver: This book was mind-blowing. A lot of things happened in it and there was a major twist at the end. I am eagerly awaiting it's sequel.
 
Fever by Lauren DeStefano: This is a dystopian like no other. It started out fast- paced and ended with a cliffhanger.
 
The Selection by Kiera Cass: I liked this book mainly because it was an entertaining read. It had it's flaws but I still enjoyed it.
 
Masque of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin: I loved this book so much perhaps because of the main character. She was a partier and had a good life. Despite this she learned to help the people less fortunate than her. People who had no protection from the plague...
 

 That concludes my list. What did you think of it? If you participated in this meme, I would love it if you commented with your link. Enjoy your day! I'd say Merry Christmas, but I'm posting something tomorrow. Then again it doesn't hurt to say it twice. Merry Christmas everyone!
