Out of the 60 books I read, 15 were 5-Star reads. For each of the ones I've included on the list, there's a little snippet from my book review, as well as the link to complete review if you'd like more information about each title.
Going from #10 to #1, here are my Top Ten books of 2012:
Echoes of Titanic was a great blend of mystery and history that had me glued to the pages for two solid days.
I can't remember the last time I enjoyed a Regency novel more than I enjoyed this one.
An Uncommon Grace was a very intriguing story that was both entertaining and satisfying.
Jenny has managed to write a witty, sassy, yet quite painful, novel that had me on an emotional roller coaster that I didn't want to end.
There are so many layers to the story and characters that as you go deeper and deeper, it is impossible to not be affected in some way.
Few authors capture the raw tension and depth of emotion that Katie Ganshert has in her debut novel, Wildflowers from Winter.
Siri's portrayal of a young 17-year-old debutante hoping to catch the hand of uber-rich Franklin de Vries was both entertaining as well as heartbreaking.
I loved the redemptive theme and the unfailing love of God that was present in every chapter. But if the truth be told, I really, really loved the romance.
I have been so impressed with all of Sandra's books over the years, but historical fiction is where her talents shine the brightest.
When I had no choice at times but to place my bookmark inside this haunting novel, my heart just ached to be back within its pages.
