Top Ten Tuesday: Reads of 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by the wonderful ladies over at

This week, the topic is...
Top Ten Books I Read In 2012

As always, I'm cheating a tiny bit.  I want to start with two authors I discovered in 2012, and quickly read everything by.  Frankly, these two could make up my whole list. 

  • Jennifer L. Armentrout's books have become an addiction of mine.  She writes sexual tension like no other!
  • Julie Kagawa quickly became a favourite of mine, and way back in March, I decided devouring her Iron Fey series was far better than studying for midterms.

Okay, now on to my favourite individual books I read in 2012.

Sweet Evil by Wendy Higgins
Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood
Lover Reborn by J.R. Ward
Under The Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Easy by Tammara Webber
Blood Red Road by Moira Young
Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

That's my list, now what's on yours?  Leave a comment or link to your Top Ten Tuesday!

Much love, Samantha


  1. I really want to read the Blood Red Road series- happy to hear it gets your approval!

  2. Under the Never Sky and Shadow and Bone are on my list too. YOu have a few others that I still need to read!


  3. Loved Under the Never Sky, and I've been meaning to read Blood Red Road. Great list! There are some on here that I definitely need to check out.

    Also, thanks for checking out my blog and list! I'm now a follower on GFC so I can keep up with your reviews.

  4. Good list, I loved Thirteen Reasons Why as well.

  5. JLA does write amazing sexual tension! Go JLA, but I'm dying with the end of Opal.

    I need to read Easy. I don't know why I haven't yet.

    Thanks for sharing :)

  6. I love Blood Red Road. Rebel Heart is a crazy sequel! Shadow and Bone is on my TBR list. Here are my favorites http://wp.me/pzUn5-1l4

  7. I need to hurry up and read the Lux series. I feel so left out! I adored Blood Red Road, it's on my list as well! I haven't read the sequel yet though. Great list :)
