The Best of 2012
The one that has my heart
The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater. Actually a re-read but still the best book I read this year.
The one that made me burn the midnight oil
Days of Blood and Starlight by Laini Taylor
The one that lived up to the hype
Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley
The one that was a brilliant follow up
Liar and Spy by Rebecca Stead.
The one that is the start of something special
The Raven Boys by Maggie Stiefvater
The one that I am still thinking about
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
The one my friend(s) wrote
The Right and the Real by Joelle Anthony and The Almost Truth by Eileen Cook – gosh my friends write terrific books!
The one that made me rush out and buy all the authors other books
The Peach Keeper by Sarah Addison Allen
The one that was a big surprise
I’ve Got Your Number by Sophia Kinsella – I really didn’t like the shopaholic series, but this was brilliant and incredibly funny.
The one I can’t wait for everyone to read
Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
Yaaaaay Rainbow R has a new one, loved Attachments, so cute. I am intrigued by Code Name Verity, it is on many lists.
Eleanor and Park is amazing – enjoy! Code name Verity is a must read, it's amazing.
Such a lovely list, Alexa! I love seeing THE PEACH KEEPER and THE RAVEN BOYS on here. And wasn't I'VE GOT YOUR NUMBER such a delightful surprise?
Thanks Angie and thanks for recommending THE PEACH KEEPER, I loved it. And, yes, IVE GOT YOUR NUMBER was delightful.
Sophie Kinsella's best one in my opinion, loved that book way more than expected!
