{Yearly Recap} VICKIE

Top Five Books I've Read This Year

1. The Goddess Test by Aimee Carter - Greek Gods, strange trials, twists and turns in the plot and a very attractive male love interest? Yes please!
2. Hourglass by Myra McEntire - All of your stereotypical YA-ness BUT! With characters that have personalities and an explation for insta-love!
3. Flat-Out Love by Jessica Park - I nearly died laughing at this one.
4. Wood Angel by Erin Bow - I sobbed when this was over. And three quarters of the way through it.
5. Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel - Vampires? No thanks! But Infinite Days really gives you an insight into Leah's mind and the sequel is right near the top of my to-buy list next year!

Books I Had High Hopes For But Didn't Love


Eve by Anna Carey - being a Dystopian junkie, I eagerly grabbed this one. Unfortunately the bland plot and cardboard characters really let it down.
Dark Eden by Patrick Carman - I was desperate to get accepted for this one on NetGalley - but the MC has the brain of a five year old and the plot is none-existent.
XVI by Julia Karr - There really wasn't much in the way of Dystopia in this. Apart from that, I don't actually remember much of it, except that it was pretty bad.

Books I'm Looking Forward To In 2012

(All Sequels!)
A Million Suns by Beth Revis
Fever by Lauren Destefano
Goddess Interrupted by Aimee Carter
Stolen Nights by Rebecca Maizel
The Springsweet by Saundra Mitchell
Interesting fact: The Vespertine by Saundra Mitchell was my first NetGalley book. I started reading it was like, wait, I can read all of this? Before it's published? For FREE?

  1. I was really disappointed by Eve too. I was so excited for it and then it was just blah...and the ending...UGH! So irritating.
