Oceana's FavoritesWhen people asked me what my favorite read of 2012, quite easily, I responded, 'Stolen by Lucy Christopher'. What I didn't realize is that when I was asked this, they meant books published in 2012 that I loved.
Oops. There goes the blonde in me.
So in this post, I'll be re-counting my top 10 favorite reads of books published in 2012. Just so you don't get confused.
10. The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa
|A disappointing spin-off, but great by itself.|
|Likable characters and a beautiful plot.|
|ASDJKLLL TUCKER MARRY ME|
|Incredibly creepy, dark, and gruesome.|
|Inspirational messages and themes.|
|There's something in these books. Like drugs.|
|Here's a box of tissues.|
|Her writing is inhuman.|
|One of my favorites of all time.|
|SEE HOW MUCH I LOVE IT? I was willing to take an embarrassing picture with my precious.|
Woah, I can't believe the year is over already! I can't believe that it's already been a year since I sat down by my laptop, who is now departed (RIP dear laptop), and decided that I would start a book blog and review YA books.
Though it's only been a year, I think that I've grown a lot since then, not only in my tastes in books but everything. Not to be vain, but I think I've made some pretty good choices as well such as leaving Shelfari (another book site) and joining Goodreads and finally working up the courage to talk to Oceana (yeah, it all spiraled from there).
Okay, to close this rambling introduction, I'm going to tell you this is actually a "Top Ten Favourite Reads" post not a weird mushy post about my emotional journey through the year.
|Deeply moving and brilliant.|
|Different and original with beautiful execution.|
|An interesting take on a zombie apocalypse.|
|Horrifying and wonderful.|
|Walking Dead + Vampires = Awesome|
|Jodi Lynn Anderson's writing is up there with Laini Taylor's (Oceana disagrees)|
So yeah, that's it. I didn't have as many "ZOMG I LOVE THIS BOOK" moments as last year (remember that was the year when I loved Twilight). Hope you enjoyed! What were your top ten reads this year?
