Favourite Reads In 2012

I have read so many great books this year - it is so hard to choose!  I have definitely been on a contemporary kick this year (which is showing no sign of abating!).  So, after much deliberation, here are my Top Ten Reads of 2012:

10: If I Die by Rachel Vincent
I LOVE Rachel Vincent and I adore this series!  I'm going to be gutted when this series finishes but I can't wait to read the final book.

9: Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver
I loved Delirium and I loved this one even more!  I love her writing and the world she has created.

8: Insurgent by Veronica Roth
One of my favourite dystopian series!  Soooo good!  Can't wait for the final book in the series.

7: This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers
Many of you will probably know by now that I have loved everything Courtney Summers has written but this one is just pure awesome sauce!  I love zombies and Summers managed to make a horror story feel like a contemporary read.  Plus is seriously creeped me out!

6: Raw Blue by Kirsty Eagar
Completely exceeded my expectations - the main character's voice is spot on.

5: Saving Daisy by Phil Earle
I was so looking forward to reading Daisy's story and it lived up to all my expectations.  Brilliant!

4: Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
This almost destroyed me.  Such a great story and I loved the relationship between the main character and her dad.

3: What Happens Next by Colleen Clayton
My surprise read of the year.  I just loved everything about it but especially the friendship/romance that develops between the two main characters.

2: Wonder by R J Palacio
So different from anything else I've read this year - just loved it.  And although it made me cry it's also such an uplifting story.

1:  Pushing The Limits by Katie McGarry
I read this at the beginning of the year and I had the feeling it would be my favourite read of the year.  Nothing else quite topped it - everything about it was spot on for me.  Love Noah and Echo and I am now practically salivating for Beth's story Dare You To.

I am so behind on last year's books! Out of these, all I've read is Raw Blue, Pushing the Limits and Wonder. I liked them all though, so that's good eh?

I'm looking forward to finally reading Insurgent and Saving Daisy. Nice list!
