Armchair BEA - Best of 2012

It's the second day of Armchair BEA and everyone is sharing their favorite 2012 reads.  We mentioned them briefly in our intro yesterday.  Today we are going to share just a bit more...

Gallagher Series by Ally Carter - Shel so wants to go to Gallagher Academy to hang out with Cammie, Bex, Liz and Macey

Storm by Brigid Kemmerer - Shel is pretty stingy with her 4 and 5 star ratings.  Storm earned 4.5 stars AND Shel read it twice in one weekend.

Half-Blood by Jennifer Armentrout - Shel found the "smack-talk" she loves in this book.

The Mephisto Covenant by Trinity Faegen - It's not often Shel describes a book as phenomenal.  High praise indeed for the Mephisto Covenant.

Chase in Shadow by Amy Lane - You can't use just a few words to describe the heartbreaking journey that is Chase in Shadow.  Read Bel's review as it packs a powerful punch that compliments the book wonderfully.

The Fault in our Stars by John Green - John Green writes what he writes best.  Angst and Humor for the intelligent teen.

Let's Pretend This Never Happened by Jenny Lawson - The Bloggess is Nat's hero for taking her inappropriate and off-the-wall humor and sharing it with the world.


  1. I have The Fault in Our Stars but have not read it yet. It is a very popular title for best of so I feel very left out! I should rememdy that!

    Here's my Armchair BEA Best of 2012 post and my giveaway post for today!

  2. Storm is hands down the hottest boy paradise ever. *giggles* Great picks!

    Happy Day Two Armchair BEA to you!

  4. I'm amazed how many blogs are mentioning The Fault In Our Stars, and I have yet to read it! I feel way behind... :)

  5. Great list! Most of the ones you chose are either on my bookshelf (have read and loved), on my nightstand (waiting to be devoured), or on my TBR shelf (Why aren't there more hours in the day?).

    I hope you have a great BEA-filled week!
