  1. Shadow and Bone.

    My favorite debut book and read this year. I think everyone who had read this book would agree that S&B are phenomenal and the darkling are definitely hot stuff!

  2. The Blinding Knife by Brent Weeks
    The Reckoning by Alma Katsu
    Tart by Lauren Dane
    When the Duchess Said Yes by Isabella Bradford
    I’ve read so many great books this year it difficult to choose just one or to even narrow it down to just a few. Not to mention that I’m a bit behind, so some of my favs I read this year were published prior to 2012. There are so many others and my TBR list is longer than “the Song That Never Ends” …I could go on for a while. I just started Falling Kingdoms by Morgan Rhodes and already I’m loving it.

  3. I had many favorites this year, but the series I’m currently enjoying is the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. All three published so far came out in 2012, with the most recent being OPAL, which released on December 11. That’s the book I’m reading right now. 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  11. There were so many good reads this year but i got introduced to new authors and a new series which i am super excited about one is the lost and found series by J.M Madden about I love of course the crossfire series by sylvia day,

  12. I read a lot of good books in 2012 so it’s hard to pick just one, but I think the one that stands out the most is,” The Crimson League (The Herezoth Trilogy)”, by Victoria Grefer . I wasn’t expecting it to be nearly as good as it was but when I read it, I was so surprised as it turned out to be completely brilliant as she brought an entire world to life. I loved it.
