Today is one of my most favourite days of the book blogging community- the beginning of Top Ten lists of 2012! This year's Top Ten of 2012 is hosted by Lisa from A Life Bound By Books, Jessica from Confessions of a Bookaholic, Jaime from Two Chicks on Books, Mindy from Magical Urban Fantasy Reads, and Rachel from Fiktshun!
5) "Soulbound" by Heather Brewer: Admittedly when I received this book from the publisher to read and review I knew nothing about it and I totally judged it by its cover (I personally am not a fan) and I am ashamed for having done so. As is evident from this being on this list this book is one of my most favourite reads of 2012- if not ever. It totally blew me away and still, months later, I think about it on an almost daily basis- especially with its ending (I am PRAYING that I can find the time to reread it sometime over the next couple of weeks). "Soulbroken", its sequel, is one of my most highly anticipated books of 2013.
7) The Lost Girl by Sangu Mandanna: In all honesty I'm not too sure what made me request this book, but I did and am I ever glad that I had! This book in my opinion is, without a doubt, is the most under-appreciated YA book of 2012. There are SO MANY books out there that I don't think that are worthy of the hype that the receive and this book deserves ALL THE HYPES. I also love the fact that this book could go either way- as a standalone or as the beginning of a series.
Honorable mentions: It's kinda cheating, I know, but I couldn't not at least mention these books since they were so gosh darn satisfying:
