Top 10 of 2012 is a week long celebration of all that we loved in novels this year! This event is hosted by Fiktshun, Confessions of a Bookaholic, Two Chicks on Books, A Life Bound By Books, and Magical Urban Fantasy Reads.
Today’s topic is Blogger’s choice. I had a hard time decided what to do here that wouldn’t just feel like a repeat of my favorite books for the year. I also felt my reading spanned a variety of genres, so it was hard to come up with 10 for one given genre. So what to do…
Fact: I am one of those people who cries embarrassingly easy. I don’t know why and it drives me insane, but it is just something that I do. Give me an emotional read and I am guaranteed to cry like a baby. So here is my Top 10 list of books that made me tear up, and perhaps snot sob into an entire box of tissues, this year!
I love angst. Give me a good angsty story and I am hooked from start to finish. This is probably the first and only book that it hurt so good that I wanted to flounce. Just for a second. Then I kept going and just loved it all that much more! MY REVIEW
If you read the synopsis, you know that the main character’s boyfriend dies in the beginning and this book is about her regaining her memory of the events that led to it. Enough said. MY REVIEW
I must admit that the beginning was a little confusing, BUT wow. This is the type of book that stays with you. The characters are just, wonderfully written. A definite must-read. MY REVIEW
Was totally not expecting this sequel to be as emotional as it was. It truly put this series on another level for me and I just loved it.
Touching poetry slams as well as an emotional story about family and love. MY REVIEW
A paralyzed boy stuck in the hospital and develops a connection with the girl in the room next door. There is a lot of mystery ingrained in the story, but I found myself needing a few tissues for a couple scenes. MY REVIEW
These poor characters had so much going on but Noah’s story really touched me the most and was a huge part of why I enjoyed this book as much as I did. MY REVIEW
This story is about a girl who sees the ghost of her murdered childhood friend/love. Yep. I am sure you can imagine the heartbreak already, if you haven’t read it. There was a murder mystery to solve, so it wasn’t all sad, but it definitely caused a few needed breaks to compose myself.
Every single book in this series had a moment that gutted me. Sometimes made me want to throw the book, but so well done. A must-read series. When I finished the last book I immediately wanted to start all over and take the journey again. MY REVIEW 1 | MY REVIEW 2 | MY REVIEW 3
