Top 10 Tuesday - Favorite Books of 2012

This week’s Top 10 from The Broke and The Bookish is Top 10 Books read in 2012. 

Even with my blogging hiatus I had to take a shot at this one.  Plus I sort of maintain this list in my Books Read in 2012 page anyway so it isn't a big time commitment.  Here are my favorite books of 2012 in no particular order.  The first seven link to my reviews.  The last three I haven't reviewed and link to Amazon.

The Fault in Our Stars - John Green

The Passage - Justin Cronin

Lola and the Boy Next Door - Stephanie Perkins
Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell

The Purity Myth - Jessica Valenti

Code Name Verity - Elizabeth Wein

We Need to Talk about Kevin - Lionel Shriver

Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn

The Language of Flowers - Vanessa Diffenbaugh

When She Woke - Hillary Jordan


  1. I just finished When She Woke and was actually really disappointed with it. I am really looking forward to reading Eleanor and Park and Code Name Verity next year. You also remind me I really need to update my own Books Read in 2012 page!

    1. I'm sorry you were disappointed with "When She Woke". I can understand though - I loved the concept of that one, but I was a little frustrated by the ending. The overall story and how well it retold "The Scarlett letter" sold it for me.

      You'll actually get to read TWO Rainbow books next year. I'm already anticipating "Fangirl" which comes out next fall.
