Top Ten Week, Day 1: Best Books Read in 2012!

Monday, 24 December 2012
Sorry to bring you another list today but I was literally just browsing through a few blogs when I came across this feature that's being hosted by A Life Bound by Books, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Fiktshun, Two Chicks on Books and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads and it caught my eye. Basically it's where each day (over the last five days of December) a new Top Ten topic will be put up on the hosting blogs and participants can then post up their ten choices on their own blogs.

The topic for today is... Best Books Read in 2012! :) My choices are (in no particular order);

The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna
Slated by Teri Terry
A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare
Divergent by Veronica Roth
Entangled by Cat Clarke
Milledgeville Misfit by T.L. Gray
Out of Sight, Out of Time by Ally Carter

Some other honourable mentions are Pegasus and the Flame by Kate O'Hearn, The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson and City of Bones by Cassandra Clare. :)

Since I'm in a rush I don't really have any time to put on Goodreads links but I do recommend all of these wholeheartedly as they are all FANTASTIC! I might be able to edit this post later and put on the links... we'll see. :)

What are your favourite books that you've read in 2012? (:

Happy Reading,
Rachel xoxo

PS: The second row of book covers is unintentionally smaller than the first row - thought I'd let you know incase you were thinking that it meant the top five must be better or something, haha. :3


  1. Hi Rachel! It's so nice to meet you- thanks so much for the sweet comment you left on my blog! :D Great post! I loved the sound of this meme when I first heard about because I'm kinda obsessed with making lists, but I guess I just couldn't follow through and I totally forgot! I think I may start participating in it again, though. :) OMG great list! Divergent, I think it's safe to say, is my FAVORITE book of IDK the last 2 years? Amazeballs. Oooh I actually have Slated sitting on my bookshelf so I may pick it up! Thanks for reminding me. :P
    I love meeting fellow bloggers and I look forward to reading more of your lovely posts!! <3

  2. Clockwork Prince without a doubt would be one of my favourite reads from this year! Can't wait for Clockwork Princess (though I'm also scared to read it)!

    Anyway great picks!

  3. It's so nice to see The Infernal Devices in your list. It's one of my all-time favorites! The Lost Girl looks good so I might have to check that one out. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Wow! I haven't read any of the books in your top 10 yet, though some are on my TBR list. This event sounded like a cool way to end the year, so I decided to sign up as well!
