Top Ten Tuesday (1)

Hi! Today, I decided to join the Top Ten Tuesday weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

Today is a freebie, so I decided to do my top ten favorite books read in 2012 so far. I couldn't choose just 10, I had to choose 11! These books are not necessarily books released in 2012. I put them in order from least favorite (that is still in my favorites) to my favorite. I hope that makes sense!

11. Legend by Marie Lu
I really enjoyed this book, it was really action-packed! I can't wait for Prodigy to come out next year.

10. Tempest by Julie Cross
I love time travel books! I can't wait for the next one to come out!

9. The Maze Runner by James Dashner
I loved this book as well as its sequel, The Scorch Trials. They are amazing, and I love all the characters! I can't wait to read the last one, as well as the prequel coming out in August.

8. Beauty Queens by Libba Bray
This book was hilarious! I really should read some more of Libba's novels.

7. Matched by Ally Condie
This book was really good. I enjoyed the characters a lot. I also really liked the sequel, Crossed. I can't wait for the final book, Reached, to come out later this year!

6. Blood Red Road by Moira Young
This book was just plain awesome. A post-apocalyptic world where dust storms happen a lot? Yes! It was really enjoyable, and I read it in a day and a half!

5. Divergent by Veronica Roth
I have a feeling that this is one of everybody's favorites. This book was AMAZING. I will read it coutless times over. I actually haven't even read Insurgent yet... it's just so HUGE!

4. Shatter Me by Taherah Mafi
This book was cool-I especially enjoyed all the slashes! It was much better than I thought it would be.

3. Awaken by Katie Kacvinsky
This book was seriously wicked. I loved it! The characters, the world, the whole idea of the novel... all of it.

2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
A seriously awesome mystery thriller? How could that not be in someone's favorites? I was always asking myself questions, waiting for them to be answered. I still have some!

1. The Selection by Kiera Cass
This was my favorite of 2012 so far. I loved the world, I loved America, Maxon, and Aspen, and I loved the whole idea of a competition for being chosen as a princess.

All photos were found on Goodreads.


  1. I loved Divergent and Legend. I'll have to check out a few of the books from your list - especially Beauty Queens.

    1. Beauty Queens was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. It was a great summer read.

  2. Ooh! I loved Divergent and Matched and Tempest was very good.

    I'm dying to read the rest. I've heard good things about all of them.

    Here's mine

    P.S. If you stop by be sure to check out my giveaway for any book under $15.

    1. If I had to suggest only one on the list, it would definitely be The Selection by Kiera Cass. It wasn't a normal dystopian... it was more of a romantic dystopian. It was quite enjoyable!

  3. I loved Divergent but i haven't gotten around to read Insurgent lol Dystopia FTW!

    1. Dystopia rocks. :)

      I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who hasn't read Insurgent yet!


Hello there! (: Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one!
