Image
2013 is finally upon us and that means that it's time to reveal my Top Ten Favorite Books of 2012. Since the start of December I've been contemplating my list and while some books have been added or bumped I feel this final list does this past year of amazing reads justice.

I want to further explain that just because these are my favorites it does not deter whatsoever the other amazing books that I've read in 2012. From Young adult to Non-Fiction the literature put out this past year has exceeded my expectations and I can only hope 2013 proves to be the same or maybe dare I say it even better!!

Anyway I know your curious which books I've chosen. Without any further ado Let's get to it shall we?! In order from 10-1 here are my Top Ten Favorite Books of 2012:

10.) Plague by Lisa Hinsley Released: April 30, 2012

Book To Movie Monday (26)

For this weeks Book To Movie Monday I have decided to cover The Hobbit I felt it only fitting that my last Book To Movie Monday of 2012 covered The most anticipated, awesomely epic film of the year. Let's get to it shall we!


First Let's Discuss The Book. Below Is The Cover:

Now for a little back story in case some of you aren't familiar with the Novel. The Hobbit is a fantasy novel written by Author J.R.R. Tolkein. The Hobbit was published September 21, 1937 by George Allen&Unwin. The book debuted to widespread critical acclaim and due to this the publishers asked for a sequel which would later become The Lord Of The Rings. The Hobbit has been translated into over 40 languages and remains a popular staple in the literary world even to this day.


Let's look at some of the characters now shall we.

Main Protagonist

Bilbo Baggins- Bilbo is the most important character in the book. Bilbo is a Hobbit and lives in happily in Bag End. Hobbits are quite comfortable in their …

All The Broken Pieces by Cindi Madsen- Review

Cindi Madsen
Publication Date: December 11,2012
Publisher: Entangled Teen

What if your life wasn’t your own?

Liv comes out of a coma with no memory of her past and two distinct, warring voices inside her head. Nothing, not even her reflection, seems familiar. As she stumbles through her junior year, the voices get louder, insisting she please the popular group while simultaneously despising them. But when Liv starts hanging around with Spencer, whose own mysterious past also has him on the fringe, life feels complete for the first time in, well, as long as she can remember.

Liv knows the details of the car accident that put her in the coma, but as the voices invade her dreams, and her dreams start feeling like memories, she and Spencer seek out answers. Yet the deeper they dig, the less things make sense. Can Liv rebuild the pieces of her broken past, when it means questioning not just who she is, but what she is?

Shift by M.R. Merrick - Review

M.R. Merrick
Publication Date: February 1,2012
Page Length: 350

Devastated by a terrible loss, Chase is trying to balance the life he’s been left with, a family he’s still getting to know, and power he never thought he’d have. He doesn’t understand why the Goddess has named him the Protector and granted him two gifts: the Mark, a tattoo that now covers his back, and the ring. But between getting interrogated by the Circle and psychic attacks from Riley, the Mark is the least of his concern. There’s a demon inside Rayna that’s fighting to be released, and it’s not her inner witch. It’s something else—a monster threatening to tear her apart.

As Chase struggles to control his magic, his enemies are closing in. Everyone has staked a claim on his ring, and destroying it may be his only chance to stop Riley. But Chase must decide if stopping him is worth risking the lives of everyone he cares about, or if protecting the ring will be enough to save his world.


Review:

One word, Chase. Simply p…
