ArmchairBEA- Best of 2012

Today's topic for Armchair BEA is Best of 2012- favorites so far or hopeful favorites to come. I'm not sure just how many of these are actually new this year (not many I expect), so its just based on what's been read.

Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1) When She Woke The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate Daughter of Smoke and Bone
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking The Book Thief Starcrossed (Starcrossed, #1) Legend (Legend, #1)
Finnikin Of The Rock Winter King: The Dawn of Tudor England Silent in the Grave (Lady Julia, #1)

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend any of these books. I already recommended Starcrossed to others, who were equally engrossed in the story.

The following books are expected out by the end of the year, or came out this year and I've not gotten a chance to read it yet, I expect great things from them

Days of Blood and Starlight (Daughter of Smoke and Bone, #2) Shadow of Night (All Souls Trilogy, #2) Reached (Matched, #3) The Necromancer's Grimoire (The Elysium Texts Series, #2)
The Last Guardian (Artemis Fowl, #8) The Song of AchillesDreamless (Starcrossed, #2)

Leave me a link if you don't log in with a way that provides it, so I can return the visit. Have fun at the twitter party tonight. I won't be able to attend it most likely, as I will be going to the Fierce Reads tour stop at Mrs. Nelson's tonight.

I want to read the new Artemis Fowl too! (I'm such a dork.)

You can try to win Shadow of Night at my blog. ^_^

Thanks for letting me know about the contest! We shall be dorks together. I love Colfer's twist to the faerie world.

I love Artemis Fowl. But I've only read the series up to book 3, gonna continue it with book 4 soon :)

Btw, if you like Artemis you should totally try the Curse Workers trilogy by Holly Black.

The Book Thief is my favorite book of all time and has been for almost four years. That's got to be some kind of record. I adored Calpurnia Tate and ranked her up there with Anne Shirley. While I enjoyed Daughter of Smoke and Bone, I am sick of cliffhangers, so I was put off by that. I will still be seeking out the second book though. Speaking of which, I had not seen the cover, and I'm glad to see it's gorgeous as well! Thanks for posting!

Poof...books! said...

What a list, you have definitely put some new book thoughts in my head. I am so waiting for SHADOW OF DOUBT too.?

Sarah Williams said...

Thanks for the suggestion. I will have to see if my libraries have it.

Sarah Williams said...

Thanks I am. That twitter party was a bit crazy tonight. Looking forward to the one Thursday

I'm getting a bit sick of this YA trilogy craze that is trending. Makes for more of those cliffhangers, and it gets torturous when you have to wait a year or more

You have a really good selection of books here both in terms of what you have read and what you want to read! Shadow of Night is my most anticipated new release of the year!

Check out my favourites so far here.

These books look really good. So far, I've only read The Book Thief and When She Woke. I really want to read Cinder. I've heard many great things about that book.
