Top Ten Tuesday!! New Year!

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted at The Broke and the Bookish featuring her love of all things, lists!

Since I’m also a fan of lists, especially top tens I thought I’d play along!

If you like lists you should play too!

Today’s topic:

Ok, I’m cheating a bit here… But as they say, it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want to! So, I am going to add the couple of Top Tens that I’ve missed with the holidays and such. Three to be exact AND add in today’s!

December 18th Post : Top Ten Books I Read (and will never forget!) In 2012The Scourgemidnight cityBetwixt

First the paranormal (ish). All three of these could even qualify for the dark as well. Especially Scourge, but I think they were not quite as dark as the four that I put in that category.

Sophies_Turn.inddThe Book ThiefSkinnyAnd then there are the true to life ones. I absolutely love reading fantasy, but there are some books that touch you so much that you will NEVER forget them. These three are those for 2012.

And last but definitely not least, the dark and crazy!! Surprisingly I only have ONE zombie book on this list!!  I wanted to add more… but there’s the top 10 thing… Book of Paul Covergrim-reaper book reviewThis Dark Earth Book Review HumanusDiabolicusFrontCover
