Top Ten Tuesday: Books I Read in 2012

Posted December 18, 2012 by Kara in Uncategorized / 26 Comments

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s topic is books I read in 2012. So. My favorite ten books of 2012, huh? This is going to be a tough topic because there were so many good ones! But this will also help me plan the giveaway hop I am participating in on December 30th hosted by Kat and Steph at Cuddlebuggery. GO SIGN UP because it’s not too late!
So I’m going to make this one short and list my top ten favorite books of 2012 without covers. Why short? Well, I have an end-of-year survey I am planning to do, plus you will get to see these books again when you can choose to win one during the above giveaway hop. I love giving things away and it’s easy for me to give away books I love! So here’s the list:
1. The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh
2. Ashen Winter by Mike Mullin
4. Shadows on the Moon by Zoe Marriott
5. Stormdancer by Jay Kristoff
6. The Diviners by Libba Bray
7. A Face Like Glass by Frances Hardinge
8. Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
9. The Dark Unwinding by Sharon Cameron
10. Insignia by S.J. Kincaid
Did any of these books make your favorites of 2012 list? Surprisingly this was a pretty easy list to come up with. Much easier than last year anyway. Perhaps it is because I am pickier and I also read fewer books than I did last year. Links go to Goodreads. Make sure you come back on December 30th for the giveaway hop! I’m also going to be giving away a book from a list of my ten most anticipated books releasing in 2013.

  1. I desperately need to read The Language of Flowers, A Face Like Glass and Behind the Beautiful Forevers – I’ve heard such good things about them! Wonderful list, Kara! I loved The Diviners, Stormdancer, and Shadow and Bone as well this past year – ESPECIALLY The Diviners! I already want to re-read that one! 😉

  2. Friend, I really liked or loved all of the books on this list that I’ve read. Book twin! (Only not really, but at least many of our very favorites match up!)

  3. Amy

    I loved Shadows on the Moon and The Diviners!! I never got to Ashen Winter. I totally suck. I wanted to read it so bad, but then I got behind. It’s so long that I never ended up fitting it in. 🙁

  4. Sam

    The Diviners and Shadow & Bone make it into my top ten too! I quite enjoyed Insignia earlier this year too now that I think about it. Great list! 🙂

  5. Stormdancer and Shadow and Bone were both super awesome! And I’ve decided that I need to give Libba Bray another chance and pick up The Diviners. (After I attempt to finish the Gemma Doyle trilogy, though).

  6. Shadow & Bone and The Diviners will also make it up on my list of favourite books of 2012. They were both gorgeously crafted novels! I recently found out about A Face Like Glass and The Dark Unwinding, and I can hardly wait to read both, too. Brilliant list, Kara. 🙂

    • Haha, no worries! I am still publishing ANOTHER list that’s more in detail the first week of January. This was just a Top Ten Tuesday post. I have to wait until 2013 begins. What if I finish the best book on December 31st? Unlikely, but you never know!
