Top Ten Favorite Books This Year

I really like doing these top ten posts. I've done my favorite boys/girls/bad guys, and now I think it's time to do my favorite books I've read this year. Hopefully I've already written reviews for all of these and they will all be in my Review Page.
These are in no order. Just whatever came to my mind first.

1. Paranormalcy by Kiersten White
Gah! I can't get over how much I adored this book!!!!!!!!! Evie is one of my favorite leading ladies now, along with Lend being in my top favorite fictional boys list. Awesome.

2. Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
Does this one even need explanation?

3. The Body Finder by Kimberly Derting
Unique story plot, well written, and a fantastic love story. That's all I need in a book.

4. Nevermore by Kelly Creagh
This is a book I can't seem to get enough of. It was so well thought out and so well done that I fell madly in love with it.

5. Iron Daughter by Julie Kagawa
The second one in this series was even better than the first. I'm dying to know what happens in the final book!!!!!!

6. Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison
I'm madly in love with Kim's works. It's not like that's a secret at all so of course this book is going to make it on my list. Duh.

7. The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade
I thought this was a really fun debut novel. The idea of a cheerleader and a goth falling for each other has been done many times (ie twice alone on this list. Nevermore) but it was still great.

8.You Wish by Mandy Hubbard
oh this book was so much fun! I couldn't wait to see what crazy past wishes were going to show up next. I've heard rumors of this being turned into a movie and I hope that's true. I loved this book enough that I ran out and bought Mandy's other books.

9. Fablehaven: Secrets of the Dragon Sanctuary by Brandon Mull
Out of all the books, this one had the ending I never saw coming. I even freaked out about it to Brandon when I went to his signing. He thought it was funny. *Sigh*

10. Spirit Bound by Richelle Mead
Did anyone else see that ending happening for this book? No? Me either. That's why I love it so much. How the hell is Rose going to get out of it this time?

If you haven't noticed before, but the ending of a book/movie is what really matters to me the most. The book can be fantastic all the way through, have a crap ending and I will hate it. This is why most of the books on this list had either a really happy ending that I loved, or a very shocking ending that gripped me.

Anyone have any good book ideas that have fantastic endings to them that I haven't read yet? Cause I'd love to hear about more great books.

p.s. also if you look over to the right side, you'll see I'm almost done with my 100 book challenge!!!!!! I AM SO EXCITED! I'm going to make my challenge the first year I tried. woo hoo!


  1. That is a great list!!!! Good picks!

  2. Great list!

    I read The Hunger Games this year too, I'm a little bit into Catching Fire. And I enjoyed The Iron Daughter more than The Iron King. Didn't think it was possible but happened!


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
