Mary's Top 12 of 2012

According to  my Goodreads account I have read 205 books in 2012 and I needed to narrow down to my 12 favorite.  Well, it was VERY HARD, but I did it.  These are not in any particular order.

Book #1: Miss Me Not by Tiffany King
By far my most favorite book of Tiffany King!! This book is a page turning-tear-jerking masterpiece and I think EVERYONE SHOULD READ THIS!  Tiffany King has the talent to reach a variety of audiences and is an amazing person!  Her kindness and love for the character shines through every page and scenario.  In my opinion, I think that she she will be a household name in the next few years!

Book #2: The Wild Ones by M. Leighton
PICK Trick!!  Always Pick Trick!! Although I love a lot of M. Leighton's work this one stands out to me the most!! She knows how to make this city girl want a cowboy!!  I loved this book from the moment Trick graced the page!!  If you have not read this (and remember this is more of an adult book) then you need to read it!

Book #3: Don't Panic by Lindsay Paige
Lindsay Paige!  This young lady has so so so so much talent!! I cannot wait to see what else she will bring to us in the future!  I loved this book so much! Lindsay Paige brought a serious topic to these pages and turned into an amazing story of trust, love and humanity all in one!!  Like I said before, PURE TALENT!!!

I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone!  It is a great read!!

Book 4: The Reluctant King by Rachel Higginson
I will never grow tired of saying on how much I love Rachel Higginson!!  Time and time again she shows her talent through each page of her stories!!  She has created the greatest characters in the Star-Crossed Series and I will ALWAYS READ THEM!!

I am looking forward to see what she will bring in 2013, because I know that she will not disappoint me or her fans!! Though I still think I am her number 1 fan!! HAHA!

I was mesmerized by the characters, story line and everything about this book that it forever be one of my favorites!  KA Tucker is an extremely talented author and I cannot wait to see what else she has rolling around in her head!!

Book 8: On Dublin Street by Samantha Young
I would have never heard of this book if Kathryn from TSK TSK What To Read had not been pimping it so hard on Facebook (pun intended).  I am not sure how I have survived my Book Nerd Life without Braden Carmichael!  Hot, yummy Scotsman! LOVE this story and just read it again this past weekend!!  Just a great story all around!

Book 9: Wicked Fate by Tabatha Vargo
What can I say about Tabatha Vargo that I have not said a thousand times before?  She is amazing, talent and a great person!  Her debut novel, Wicked Fate, will knock you down.  It is such a great story and I know that book 2 will be just as good, if not better.  Tabatha Vargo is working on some great projects for 2013 and I can't wait.

If you haven't read Wicked Fate, then purchase it here:Wicked Fate (The Wicked Trilogy)

Book 10: Perchance by Lila Felix
*shakes head* Lila, Lila, Lila, where have you been all  my Book Nerd Life?!?!?!?!  Lila Felix is a 2012 debut author and already has 3 books published.  One, she is a writing machine.  Two, her fan demand more from her the moment we put the book down.  Perchance is my favorite of the novels she has published in 2012.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for 2013.  I know that she will not disappoint!

Perchance (amazing LOVE STORY) can be purchased here:Perchance

Book 11: Beyond The Veil by Quinn Loftis
Quinn is the Luna of all books! The Grey Wolf Series has quickly become my most favorite series.  Even though, Quinn has become the LUNA of cliffhangers.  It never fails that I am cussing at the end of one of her books because she has ripped out my Book Nerd heart and I am wanting more!  that is true talent there!  I know that 2013 will bring book 6 of the Grey Wolf series.  Along with that she is writing a new series called Elfin (also great!)

But in all seriousness, I need to THANK QUINN for bringing Decebel in my life!!

Book 12: Empty Net by Toni Aleo
If you know anything about from following me on Facebook or Twitter you know that I have a love for sports, especially HOCKEY!!  I am a Chicago Blackhawks fan through and through! Toni Aleo knows how to write a hockey book and series!  I will let it go that she is a Nashville Predators fan since she has given me 3 new fictional boyfriends!! Empty Net is my favorite of her series and I love Tate SO MUCH!!
