I have read a lot of great books this year. I have come to know great characters and amazing new worlds that I didn't want to leave. I have fallen in love, become angry and even cried.

Leave a comment and tell me a few of your favourites for the year or a book that you can't wait to get your hands on next year!


  1. Wow, I love this list. Don't really get to see the 'Sad Farewell' section much, so this was a nice inclusion.

    Some of my faves from this year were Anna And The French Kiss, Fury (Shirley Marr), My Invented Life. Can you tell I'm a total contemp girl?

    There are quite a few 2011 releases I'm hoping to catch up with in 2012. Otherwise, I'm looking forward to Survive by Alex Morel, Vessel by Sarah Beth Durst and Don't Breathe A Word by Holly Cupala. That's all I can think of off the top of my head right now.

  2. I'm going to try and read more contemporary next year. You can tell I'm a paranormal/urban fantasy girl!

  3. great list! i'm going to put some of these on my goodreads to-read queue :)

    anna dressed in blood is SUCH an awesome name for a book!

    happy holidays and new year!

  4. Ooooh, I lurve your pics! It seems as if YA gets the best covers. Which is good, because I love to read YA...and attempt to write it!

    Happy New Year Komal!

  5. Gina - I love the name 'Anna Dressed in Blood' too! It sounds like such an authentic name for an urban legend.

    Amy - YA does have great covers! They're so pretty to look at.
