Top Ten Books I Read in 2012

"I'm in love with you, and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you."





"I wandered in the darkness looking for something better, something real. I found you, and I'll be damned if I'm going to lose you."









"Oh Eva." He rubbed his cheek against my damp face. "I must've wished for you so hard and so often you had no choice but to come true."









"If no one in the entire world cared about you, did you really exist at all?"










"So do you believe in second chances?" I bite my lip.
"Second, third, fourth. Whatever it takes. However long it takes. If the person is right," he adds.
"If the person is... Lola?"
This time, he holds my gaze. "Only if the other person is Cricket."






"Princess...He honestly thinks I'm a vampire princess... The strange, almost pleasurable  sensation I'd felt when he'd brushed my cheek was forgotten as reality hit me again. Lucius Vladescu was a lunatic."








"Hate isn't the most dangerous thing, he'd said. Indifference is."










"I'm sure I'll feel much more grateful when I find a guy who thinks complex wiring in a girl is a turn-on."









"Your children will be wild and undisciplined. Your daughters will run off with stable hands and your sons will become attorneys."









"I mean, if the relationship can't survive the long term, why on earth would it be worth my time and energy for the short term?"



There you have it! What were your favorite reads of 2012?

Happy reading!

    1. Ahhh, give yourself enough time to read Bared to You AND the sequel - Reflected in You. I was seriously counting down the days until Reflected in You was released... and now I have to wait 5 more months until the 3rd book is released. It is torture!
