Today's Topic: Favorite Books Since 2012
Holy crap this was hard! There are a lot of books I really enjoyed these past couple of years, but I've been trying to actually keep these lists to 10 (except for my season TBR lists because that will just never happen...)

13638125 11861815 8442457 10866233 
Fangirl 12578313 13517338 
7728889 12294652 18599901 

Vicious by V.E. Schwab
This book is beyond amazing. I adore it.
Winger by Andrew Smith
I almost didn't pick this one up based on this ugly ass cover, but what inside is funny and heartbreaking and just so wonderful. I cannot wait for the sequel.
Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
I'm going to do a little gloating here...sorry. I read this book a couple of weeks after it was released back in 2012 and was blown away. I actually figured out the mystery almost immediately, but was still blown away.
The List by Siobhan Vivian
This ambitious book is a slice of life. It looks at a single week in high while following 8 different girls. I've read it a couple of times these past couple of years and was just thinking it was time for another re-read. 
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
I had an arc of E&P and just couldn't get into it for the life of me. I tried to read it...twice..and tried to listen to the audio book, but it just wasn't my bag. I'm so glad I gave this one a try regardless because I adore Fangirl. I love Cath and her fanfic. 
Golden by Jessi Kirby
One of my favorite aspects of this lovely little book is the positive role the English teacher plays.
The Reece Malcolm List by Amy Spalding
Even though this has a cute romance, my favorite aspect of this story is the realistic mother-daughter relationship--something that is way to rare in most YA.
The Diviners by Libba Bray
People with special powers set during the Roaring 20s. Need I say more?
My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Swoon, swoon, swoon. I never had a dude like this living next to me...
Tease by Amanda Maciel
This book really stayed with me. I loved how it wasn't a black and white look at bullying. The victim wasn't an angel and the bully wasn't a demon. Both girls were real. This book is a truly important work, and I admired it a lot even if I didn't necessarily love it. 

Well that's it for me. What are your favorite reads from the past couple of years? Link me up!

  1. Nice choices, I've been wanting to read The Diviners and Vicious. I will make sure to do that before this year ends for sure! Fangirl is on my list as well. That book is soo good. :D I was completely clueless to the mystery of Gone Girl of course and it was definitely well done. :)

  2. I recognise a few of these titles from browsing through other blogs but I haven't read any of them. It took me AGES to put my own list together today!

  3. Nice list!! I loved Fangirl and easily could have included it on my list. My Life Next Door is still on my TBR list. I'm happy to see that you enjoyed it. I may have to move it closer to the top of my stack to read.

  5. I've read all but two of these (Vicious and The Diviners) and agree they're all memorable. Quite a few are on my list too. I'm also glad I'm not the only one who couldn't get into Eleanor and Park.

  7. This was such a tough topic for me, so hard to pick favorite books! My Life Next Door…I really liked that book, I fell in love with the whole family. And I enjoyed The Diviners…I need to reread it before the new one comes out! Great list! ~Pam

Hello, there! Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read each and every one and will do my best to respond--usually on your blog instead of on mine. I will, however, always answer direct questions. Due to serious time restraints, this blog is now an award free zone, but I appreciate the thought!
