  2. Ohhh, Sever! I'm totally looking forward to that. And I got Sweet Evil for Christmas, so I should be reading that sometime soon. Time Between Us! Oh, Bennett and Anna. They were adorable.

    Great list and ahppy New Year!!

    Just a Booklover:

  3. I loved The Raven Boys, it really took me by surprise. I can't wait for Sever to be released, and I'm excited for Through the Ever Night too. I need to get started with Shatter Me, especially as everyone seems to love it!

  4. I NEED to read Time Between Us, I've heard so many great things about it!

  5. I just started Raven Boys last night and really love it so far!

    Unwind was so eerie and amazing! I didn't expect it to stick with me so long after I read it. My mom already read the sequel, UnWholly and said it is AMAZING. I can't wait to read it!

  6. Time Between Us and Shatter Me were both awesome =)
    Great list =)

  7. There are some awesome books on your favorites list! I read and loved Sweet Evil and Under the Never Sky. And while I read Unwind in 2011, it's in my Top 5 favorites of all time. It was totally amazing. I also really enjoyed Incarnate. It also seems like we're looking forward to the same books!! I'm pretty much dying for Through the Ever Night. Veronica Rossi keeps posting these teasers and they're hurting my soul! ;) I want that book like yesterday.

    Fantastic lists Anna! <3 I hope your 2013 is filled with just as many amazing books as 2012.

  8. Great lists Anna! I definitely loved Incarnate, Smart Girls, Shadow and Bone, amd Sweet Evil too! Definitely excited for Siege and Storm, Sweet Peril, and Asunder! Happy New Year! :)

  9. Wasn't A Monster Calls so great? Patrick Ness knows how to get the tears out of me and that book left me SOBBING.

    I am really looking forward to Siege and Storm too.

    Happy New Year!

  10. The only books I read on your list are Sweet Evil and Shatter Me and I loved them too. All the other books on your list I have been wanting to read for a while now, but never got around to reading them yet.

  11. Aw, I love your picks! I also loved A Monster Calls, The Time Between Us, Raven Boys, Every Day, Unwind, and Shadow and Bone. I'm SO looking forward to Siege & Storm, too!

  12. I need SIEGE AND STORM like I need air. No, I'm not exaggerating. *cries* I LOVED SHADOW AND BONE, as I think I've said...way too often this year. Haha. Also loved SEND ME A SIGN, HEMLOCK, and we've talked a bit about TIME BETWEEN US. :D

  13. This is a great post! :) I love reading all your favorites. I also love your format and it inspired the one I used on my blog! Thank you!
