Yesterday kicked off Armchair BEA, a virtual event where those of us who could not attend BEA in New York City this year can still discuss books and blogging together! Yesterday was all about introductions, and you can see mine HERE if you missed it. Today I will be talking about my favorite 2012 releases as well as some books being promoted at BEA that I am dying to read and will hopefully become a favorite as well!
Best of 2012
-City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5) by Cassandra Clare: LOVE this series and of course, Jace! You can find my review HERE!
-Ten by Gretchen McNeil: Okay, I realize this one isn't going to be released until fall, but I already read it and loved it! My review will be up on the blog closer to release.
-Hallowed (Unearthly #2) by Cynthia Hand: One of the best series in the angel genre that I have read.
-Sempre by J.M. Darhower: I can't say enough how much I love this one! The story is beautiful, heartbreaking, and I NEED the sequel! Review can be found HERE!
-Fever (The Chemical Gardens #2) by Lauren DeStefano: I had chills when I finished reading this one! You can read my review HERE!
-Pandemonium (Delirium #2) by Lauren Oliver: Lauren is the queen of killer cliffhangers in this series! Gah! What I wouldn't do to get a copy of the last book, Requiem! Review is HERE!
-Insurgent (Divergent #2) by Veronica Roth: This series is becoming my all-time favorite! LOVE Tris and Four in this action packed dysptopian! Review can be found HERE!
-Article 5 by Kristen Simmons: An amazing dystopian read!
-The Fault in Our Stars by John Green: Seriously one of the best books I have ever read. EVER!
Books at BEA
-Prodigy (Legend #2) by Marie Lu: I loved Legend! I am so looking forward to the sequel!
-What's Left of Me by Kat Zhang: The whole idea about sharing souls sounds so interesting!
-Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr: Fighting in a deadly competition? Definitely want to read!
-Venom by Fiona Paul: Renaissance Venice AND a murder mystery? Yes, please!
-Through to You by Emily Hainsworth: I have been dying for this one! Thinking your girlfriend is dead and discovering she isn't, but is stuck in a parallel world, sounds so intriguing!
Don't Turn Around by Michelle Gagnon: Computer hacking! Seems so different and like something that could actually happen! EEK!
Insignia by S.J. Kincaid: Can't wait to get my hands on this one!
Poison Princess by Kresley Cole: A book about a girl who has apocalyptic hallucinations is definitely one I need to read.
Breathe by Sarah Crossan: I am a huge fan of dystopia so this was a no-brainer for me to add to my TBR list!
-Ever Day by David Levithan: I featured this recently on my 'Waiting On' Wednesday post. Sounds heartbreaking, but fantastic.
-If I Lie by Corrine Jackson: I have had this book on my TBR list for so long. So excited the release isn't too far away now!
-Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone: OMG I just had to edit this book into the post because I didn't realize it would be at BEA! I have been dying for this one! I am really into time travel right now.
I could seriously go on and on with books featured at BEA this year that I have high hopes for joining the list of 2012 favorites, but I am pulling myself away! LOL Let me know in the comments below what your favorite 2012 reads were and what BEA books you are looking forward to! Links if you got them!
