Melissa's 2012 Rewind

What a crazy year it has been, filled with books, reviews, vlogs, various guest blogger stuff, and more books. I’ve read my fair share of mediocre books, but I got pretty lucky with the abundance of good books this year.

The first books I started out with this year put me off to a great start. The Hollow series by Jessica Verday was fantastic, and a definite reread. I loved Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, and the Vampire Academy series by Richelle Mead was amazing. I was also so glad that Lee forced me to read Unearthly and Hallowed by Cynthia Hand.

I tried some contemporary YA, too, and really liked it, my favorites being Stephanie Perkins’s Anna and the French Kiss and the companion novel, Lola and the Boy Next Door, and John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars and Paper Towns. Anna Dressed in Blood by Kendare Blake and its sequel, Girl of Nightmares, also make my list of top books for the year. I have to say, though, that Cassandra Clare’s The Infernal Devices was my favorite of the favorites.

I can’t wait to continue reading next year. I can only hope it will bring equal quality, if not better, books.


  1. Love The Infernal Devices too, Clockwork Princess is my highly anticipated read of 2013 :) I'm just discovering the VA series, and it's even better than I imagined.

    1. I'm dying for Clockwork Prince to come out. The wait is unbearable! And I too was pleasantly surprised with VA. The synopsis really threw me off, but I'm glad I read it anyway. :)

  2. I've read most of those and it sounds like you had a great year. Hope 2013 is just as great!
