TGIF at GReads - This feature is for Fridays to re-cap the week's posts & to propose a question for my followers.

Hey folks!  Sorry about the lack of posting this week...I just started a new job so it's gonna take me a minute to get used to things! :)

This Friday's Question:
Best I've Read So Far: We're half way through the year (crazy how time flies!), which top 3 books are the best you've read so far this year?
Wow, I can't believe we're at the halfway point!  I definitely haven't read as many books in 2012 but, hey, it happens.  And while my quantity is low, the quality of my reading this year is superb!  It was really hard to choose but, drumroll are my top 3 books of 2012 (thus far):

1.  Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller - Epic retelling of an epic!

2. Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness - Wow!  Best conclusion to a series EVER!  I loved every second that I spent reading The Chaos Walking Trilogy - I was ridiculously attached to the characters in these novels.

3.  **CHEATER ALERT*** I'm wavering between Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder.  Aaaah!  They're all so different, I'm having a really hard time choosing so I'm just gonna pick all three :)


  1. I really enjoyed Poison Study & her Opal Cowan Trilogy as well. I haven't read any of the others on your list but I keep hearing great things about The Fault in Our Stars and it's on my TBR list.

    Hope settling into the new job is going well :)

    My first ever TGIF

  2. I've seen many people choosing TFiOS...I picked it too. I have Poison Study on my TBR shelf. I'll have to get started on it soon.

  3. I totally agree with you about Song of Achilles, it was amazing!!!

  4. Oh, good choices! And I love the title of your blog! :)

  5. I have yet to read Poison Study, but the story intrigues me and I'm certain I should give it a try :)

  6. I've only read Poison Study which I really liked. I'll have to check out the rest of your favorites.

  7. MONSTERS OF MEN! MONSTERS OF MEN! CHAOS WALKING!! This makes my day, seriously. WOW.
