Lisa's Top 5 Reads 2012


(In no real order!)

Cinder by Marissa Meyer - Was one of the first books I read in 2012, and couldn’t get enough of it. I’ve seen and read many different versions of the Cinderella story, but Cinder put a new, and futuristic twist on it. I hope to read more of these types of stories from Marissa Meyer in 2013, including Scarlet!

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green - This one I read during the summer while laying out, tanning. The Fault in Our Stars is one of a few books that brought tears to my eyes in 2012 and really changed the way I think about life, and cancer. This book caused me to feel so many emotions from complete happiness one minute to sadness and tears the next.

Revived by Cat PatrickRevived is another one of my summer reads that I enjoyed along with a few hours of sun, and one or two cold glasses of lemonade. The story is something I’d usually never pick up (especially during the summer time). It follows a teenage girl, who isn’t what she seems to most people. She has a tendency to die, once due to a accident, a bee sting, and few other different scenarios, but every time she did, her “dad” and “mom” would quickly revive her, pack up their things and move somewhere new. I don’t want too give away too much, so I better stop there…

We’ll Always Have Summer by Jenny Han - I loved this summery trilogy, and I refused to read it during any other season of the year! This book contained a character I could connect so well with, a love triangle I couldn’t get enough of, and a ending I could never foresee.

Shine Light by Marianne de Pierres - This is the most recent book I’ve read, and loved! Starting this series I fell in complete love with the first book, and I admit the second was pretty good, but I still liked the first better. When finally receiving this one in the mail, I was a excited, but yet still determined that Shine Light would never top Burn Bright. To my surprise it did. What I enjoyed most was the characters and the way they developed throughout the third book.

I’m not very sure which books I’m most excited to read in 2013. I haven’t given it much thought. But I do hope to read well over 80 books before this time of year, next year comes around!
