Best of 2012!

2012 has been a phenomenal reading year for me!
After three years of hard work and partying I regained time for reading- I've read 50 books since June!
So my last post of 2012 is a quick round up of my 2012 favourites! I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year!

Favourite Debut
I picked this one up with nothing to go by and I loved it!

Favourite Start of Series
Divergent perfectly set the scene and the action for the rest of the series- just need to read Insurgent!

Favourite Standalone
 Morgan Matson is a firm summer time must read for me! I loved all the emotions and memories in this one!
 
Unexpected Favourite
I got this one free when I preordered Sophie Kinsella's latest book- I loved it! Very rarely does a free book surpass the one you paid for!
 
Favourite All Around
Dash and Lily had everything! Humour, sweet moments, stupid moments and action!

Favourite Latecomer
One of my last books of the year and one of my favourite! I'll be reviewing it next year!

The One I Should of Read Earlier!
Everyone's been raving about The Hunger Games for ages and I eventually picked it up in June this year- should have picked it up earlier!
 
Favourite End of Series
I was so happy to finally finish Ruby's story- I've loved her neurotic ways since 2006!
 
Favourite Sequel
I loved If I Stay but Where She Went had a little more resolution and perspective! Brilliant sequel!

Favourite 'Indie' Author
A random download led me to Abbi Glines! My favourite Indie author of 2012 because her books encouraged me to try other indie authors! 
 

Favourite Author
This one was hard! Veronica Rossi wrote a beautifully crafted world, a wonderful prequel and is very interactive! I'm already scouring my local bookshops for a freak early release!


Favourite Genre
 

 Before The Hunger Games I'd had no real interest in Dystopia but now I love it! I love all the different interpretations of the world, the intriguing mysteries and the characters. Not a fan of some of the love triangles but you can't love it all!


What were your favourites of 2012?
Happy New Year!
Much Love!

STSmall
What is Stacking The Shelves all about?
Stacking The Shelves is hosted by Tynga all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts and of course ebooks!

Apparently Christmas = £0.77 books! Which was a little too tempting!
Most of these were sitting on my Amazon eBook wish list so it was easy to notice the price change :)
 

Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines
My love for the Sea Breeze series is well documented so I'm excited for this new series! I've heard it has a cliff hanger ending so I'm trying to wait until closer to the release date of #2!

A Toast to The Good Times by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt  
I loved Lengths- the first collaboration between Liz Reinhardt and Stephen Campbell so I feel confident I'll love this too!

The Truth About Faking by Leigh Talbert Moore
I've been desperate to try out Leigh Talbert Moore's writing and this book so it's high on the TBR!
 
The Perfect Game by J. Sterling
I sampled this ages ago so I was thrilled that it was on offer! Fingers crossed it's as good as I hope!
 
 The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden by Jessica Sorensen
All the teasers Jessica posted on her blog and my love of Ella and Michael makes me excited to read this one!
 
Dizzy by Nyrae Dawn and Jolene Perry
 I have loved Nyrae Dawn's writing and Jolene Perry's so a collaboration peaked my interest!

Charade by Nyrae Dawn
Another longtime resident of my wish list, I sped through it almost as soon as it was downloaded! Review to come soon and it made my 2012 Top Ten Contemporary Reads !

Have you read any of these? Are they as good as I hope they are?
Much Love!

Top Ten Contemporary Reads of 2012!



 
 I'm a bit late to this meme but it is Christmas! Hope you are all having a fabulous celebration!
I've chose Top Contemporary reads as my topic because I've read loads of contemporaries this year and I kind of already had this post written, so I just tweaked it! 
Easy by Tammara Webber
I have been re-reading this one like crazy! I love the side cast of characters, the theme, the romance, Jackie, Lucas... Everything really! Reviewed in October.

 
If I Stay and Where She Went by Gayle Forman
No surprises here! I loved these two books- brilliantly unique contemporaries with a fantastic cast of characters and a brilliant use of flashbacks! I loved how the two books are from two different point of views and both felt very emotionally deep and real. Reviewed in July!
 
Second Chance Summer by Morgan Matson
Morgan Matson has been one of my go to summer contemporary authors since Amy and Roger! I loved concept and plot line of Second Chance Summer and the complex characters. Reviewed in July.
Dash and Lily's Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
A fun festive witty contemporary read which incorporates so much of New York City and it's diversity! Reviewed in October.
Because of Low by Abbi Glines

 
I have gushed over Abbi Glines Sea Breeze series it's no surprise this one made it on this list! Because of Low was so sweet and based around family drama which I loved. Reviewed in September
 
Lengths by Steph Campbell and Liz Reinhardt


I loved how hot and sweet this was! I liked how Whit seemed to be the more troubled on as usually in YA/NA the guy is the most 'broken'. Such an unexpected great read. 
 
Derailed by Alyssa Rose Ivy.
 I liked the setting and the pace- it really surprised me with how much I enjoyed it! So glad I got the chance to take part in the tour! Reviewed in December!
 Charade by Nyrae Dawn
Sped through this on Sunday- it is so amazing! I can't believe I waited so long to read it!
Review is on it's way!
 
What has been your favourite contemporary read of 2012?
Much Love!

Adding to my Clayton Falls day- a cover reveal!
 
 

When your past catches up, it's time to stop running.
Jake Mathews messed up yet again— but this time his misstep lands him in the hospital. He wakes up to find the girl of his dreams and the memory of having his deepest secret revealed.
Emily Taylor needs a break. She's been working double shifts as a nurse just to pay the bills while trying to heal a broken heart. The last thing she needs is to fall for a patient.
Strapped with community service and the knowledge that he's disappointed everyone in his life, Jake is determined not to let Emily slip through his fingers. Emily wants Jake, but can she really open herself up to heartache again?


I'm so excited to read Jake's story- He's been intriguing me since the very beginning of Derailed! I love the cover- definitely my second fav of the series!

Veer Blog Tour- Veer by Alyssa Rose Ivy




Welcome to the Veer Blog Tour! Time for a review of Veer!
 
Only when you let go can you learn to live.

Between the death of her mother and pushing through law school without her best friend, it's been a tough year for Becca. Needing a break from Boston, she moves to a tiny coastal North Carolina town for a relaxing summer. After bumping heads repeatedly with a local cop, she realises her summer will be anything but quiet.
Three years after a career ending injury ruins his chance to play Major League Baseball, Gavin has a distrust of northerners and lately girls in general. He wants nothing to do with a girl who is only in town for the summer.
When the two give in to their impossible attraction, they realise that they may just have found the key to freeing themselves from the ghosts of their pasts.

 
I started this one straight after Derailed- I couldn't wait to read more about Clayton Falls! Brilliant follow up!

What I loved:
  • The Premise- I liked that the series continued through Gavin and Becca two minor but important characters from Derailed. I loved that the pairing hadn't been obvious in Derailed and that the book told the background and the story of both characters so well. The actual storyline of Gavin and Becca was really intriguing too, Gavin's injuries, Becca's past etc were such good plot points!
  • Jake- I loved seeing Jake in a completely different light! He really intrigued me with his bad boy persona and all the little bits we learnt about him, like the fact he was starting Quarterback! I'm now really excited to read his story, Wrecked!
  • Side Cast- Molly and Ben were back! I always enjoy seeing the progress a couple has made from the last book so I was thrilled to see them stronger than ever! I also loved Kelly and Tom playing their role of established couple who always give great advice! I'm intrigued by the slight tension Becca saw between Molly and Kelly towards the end..
  • Compromise- I liked that Gavin and Becca actually made compromises for each other- especially at the end! It was very realistic and made a great ending! 
What I didn't love as much:
  • Gavin's family- Mainly the women! They were so over the top especially to Becca- no wonder she got scared! If you want a girl to marry your brother don't suggest wedding planning and babies the first time you meet...
  • Conflict Resolution- Gavin and Becca had a massive argument after the visit with Gavin's family and it didn't feel like they ever really resolved the issues or discussed it fully :/ It just annoyed me!
This book kept me guessing to the very end! I loved revisiting Clayton Falls and cannot wait for more!
Check out my review of Derailed- the first in this series and stay tuned for a cover reveal for book #3!

Have you read Veer? Opinions?
Much Love!

Veer Blog Tour- Derailed by Alyssa Rose Ivy


Welcome to  the Veer Blog Tour! Starting with a review of the first book in the Clayton Falls series!
When you're lost, sometimes the only place you can go is home.

Broken over the death of her fiancé, Molly leaves law school to return to her childhood home in North Carolina. Expecting to lay low until she can figure out what else to do with her life, she finds herself in the arms of her high school sweetheart, the boy who represents everything from the past she tried to leave behind.
Looking for an escape, she instead finds a way back to the girl she almost forgot existed and a future she never dreamt possible.

I was so looking forward to reading this one! It's been on my Amazon wish list for ages so I was thrilled that it lived up to  my expectations!

What I loved:
  • Plot- I loved that the plot was full of familiar elements but with an unique take! Like the high school boyfriend but he'd matured, the new fiance but he'd died etc. I loved how the twists were slowly revealed to the audience and then to the characters- it really made it an intriguing read! I also loved the connection with the title and Molly's life, which had in sense been derailed since before she left home! 
  • Pace- I liked that the story was set a while after Adam's death- so Molly had had some time to grieve and try to move on. It really annoys me when fictional people move on super fast after the death of their partner so I was glad that wasn't the case!
  • Kelly- I loved her down to earth and realistic attitude. Kelly was there for Molly, encouraging her, cheerleading her and generally being an ace best friend! Only thing that annoyed me was the wedding date thing- little bit awkward!
  • Ben- I loved him! I liked that he had actually matured and owned his past. Perfect example of why breaking up can be good! he was so supportive of Molly and knew her well enough to know how to handle her!
  • Side Cast!- You know I love a good side cast! I liked Molly's family, especially Shayna, She was a good sister to Molly even though Molly hadn't been the most inviting! Gavin, he was far too sure pf himself and persistent but he had the potential to be a good guy, just not for Molly.... Jake, he really intrigued me! He was more like Molly than Ben. I really want to know what he did between Molly leaving for college and her return!
  • Setting- I loved the setting! It sound so picturesque and serene- the perfect place to relax and heal!
What I didn't love as much:

  • Names- I'm a big fan of matching family names- Shayna and Molly didn't sound like the children of the same parents which kept annoying me! I think it's just my own issue though!
  • More- I wanted more! More of Molly's family and Ben's family. More on their future and their past.. But I guess that's the point of a series! 
I loved this book! I loved the characters, the plot and the setting! Definitely an Alyssa Rose Ivy fan!

Did you love Derailed too?
Stay tuned for my review of Veer!
Much Love!

Cover Reveal! I Choose You by Bethany Lopez

 

Up until now, Nicole's life has been mapped out for her. She'd go to college, marry Jake and become the upstanding minister's wife. When she leaves that life to begin again in a small town in Texas, she finally has the freedom to live as she chooses. There, she meets Kent, a guy whose charm and passion make it hard to stick to her morals.
Dodging his father’s fists and protecting his twin sister made Kent into the man he is today. He learned by watching his mother stay by his father’s side that it’s better to keep relationships simple. Then he meets Nicole. Her sweet smile and genuine response to him land like punches to his resolve. After a lifetime of learning to protect his heart, can he finally let down his guard?



I did the cover reveal for Make It Last, the first of The Friends & Lovers series so I'm glad to continue revealing the lovely covers! I love the sound of this one too- everyone loves a protective bad boy! I Choose You releases January 8th 2013!

Have you read Make It Last?
Much love!

Finding Mia Blog Tour!


 
 
Intelligent and fiercely independent, sixteen-year-old Mia Marchette has never had a childhood. After her father’s disappearance when she was six, she has alone borne the burden of her mother’s bipolar disorder.
When her mother is institutionalised after a failed suicide attempt, Mia is abruptly forced to live with the estranged father she has not known for ten years. She is shocked to discover that he has created a new, picture-perfect life for himself, and is now living with a stepmother and a half-sister Mia never knew she had. Together, Mia and her new family must face the bitterness, mistakes, and long-hidden secrets that threaten to destroy their precarious happiness.
Finding Mia follows Mia's journey as she searches to find the unanswered questions from her past, leading to her own self-discovery.
Ultimately, this is a story of confronting pain and finding freedom, of letting go and learning to search for love in unexpected places.
 
Welcome to the Finding Mia Blog Tour! Here's a little sneak peek! Hope you enjoy!
 
Keith Marchette could remember the day he laid eyes on Denise as if it were yesterday. It was the spring of 1987, and an endless bout of rain had created a dampness in the air, thick and heavy from the humidity. He was on his way to catch the train home from work, weaving in and out of the chain of booths that lined the streets of Harvard Square’s fifth annual arts festival.
He spotted her in the distance, a vision in white, carefully eyeing the rows of glass jewelry that hung from one of the displays. He slowed his pace, studied her as she toyed with the crystal beads, moving each one back and forth in her hands, humming to herself. Her hair shone like a flame in the hint of sunlight that was peeking though the clouds.
Keith was prepared to keep right on strolling along, to chalk it up to yet another what-might-have-been chance encounter with a pretty stranger. Working in the city had exposed him to a new lifestyle, and he’d found himself staring at the faces of the unfamiliar as they passed him on the subway, envisioning what would happen if he acted on the thoughts that were running through his mind. But every day, they’d just smile at each other and wander past, strangers never to meet again, a question that would never be answered.
As the clouds slowly began to part, a bright ray of sun snuck through the sky, illuminating the sultry air. Keith picked up his pace in hopes of escaping the heat and ducking into the underground shade of the train station. Only he never made it that far, because Denise stepped backwards right as he was making his way his past, sending his briefcase crashing to the ground.
Her eyes went wide for a brief second, but the embarrassment of the situation seemed to escape her. She threw her head back and let her laughter ring through the air.
“I’m so sorry,” she said, clasping both hands to her chest. Her smile was like a full moon in the night sky, something that radiated and lit up everything around it. Something that, if you got close enough, had the power to drive you crazy.
It was at that moment that Keith began to think back on all the times he’d brushed shoulders with a woman on the sidewalk, all the times he’d met eyes with a stranger across the cafĂ© on his lunch break, all the chance encounters he might not have missed out on if only he’d asked.
Two cups of coffee later, Denise agreed to a date the following Friday night. Keith took her to a Bruce Springsteen concert at the Palladium, then polished off the evening with drinks at The Willow, while Denise shared stories of her semesters abroad in Paris and Florence. Keith clung to every word, helpless, intoxicated by the soothing flow of her voice, soft and warm, like the sounds of waves crashing. She smelled like lavender and wore a small purple lilac in her hair. She stirred the straw in her glass between sips. She laughed at his jokes. She had a dimple in her left cheek, a passion for photography and was fluent in three languages. Keith wondered what else about her he had yet to uncover.  
Had he known what else was lurking underneath, the turmoil it would have caused him, it wouldn’t have mattered. He would’ve done it all over again. Because regardless of the outcome, love conquered all. He, of all people, knew this at least.

Intrigued? Desperate to read it?
Much Love!

The Kiss Off Blog Tour- Sequel!

 
Hopefully you've read my review of The Kiss Off and you want to know if you can read more about Poppy's adventures?
Well..... The Kiss Off 2 is coming 2013!
The Kiss Off 2 will include:
  • A road trip with an unexpected passenger.
  • Camping.
  • The realization too late that they don't actually like camping.
  • Sunburns.
  • Accidental topless swimming.
  • Paparazzi punch ups.
  • A news-worthy (yet totally false) love triangle.
  • Obsessed fan girls.
  • A stalker.
  • And an overwhelming request from someone super-famous.
 Here's a short extract to tided you over until then!
 
The money's in! Poppy's royalties for penning the accidental hit song
The Kiss Off that shot her boyfriend's band to super-stardom are in
and she knows EXACTLY what she's doing with it.
 
“See that?” I said, pointing at the feature band name on the flyer.
“Academy of Lies are headlining Bay Fest over in Tallulah Shores.”
“They’re headlining? Are you serious?” Mads said.
I grinned. “Pack your bags, baby.”
“Shut up.”
“Two words: road trip,” I said. “One word: camping.”
“Shut up.”
“Five wor — is it five? Yeah — five words: One week by the sea.”
“Shut up.”
“Four more words-”
“Enough with the words already.”
“I’m nearly done,” I said, “four final words: you, me and Van.”
She bit her bottom lip, staring at me when her hands started wringing
in front of her again. And she started bouncing.
“No,” I said, “no, no. You shut up. You start screaming again and
you’re not coming.”
Instead, Mads squeezed me in a bear hug and planted a kiss on my
cheek. “I’m going to Babe Fest. I’m going to Babe Fest!”
Bay Music Festival. Of all the nicknames in the world, it could have
been a lot worse.
 
Sounds even more fabulous than the Kiss Off!!
What do you think?
Much Love!

The Kiss Off Blog Tour!

 
When sixteen year old Poppy Douglas writes a song about her ex-boyfriend Cam and ex-friend Nikki, she has no idea that her heartbreak is about to go global.
A local band picks up her song from Youtube and soon she’s along for the ride with her own fanbase as they blow up on the local club scene and hit the international charts. Though it turns out leaving Cam behind isn’t as easy as she had hoped.
Tangled in a web of unfinished homework, ill-considered sexting and a new lead-singer boyfriend, Poppy has a choice to make between the ex that inspired it all and the rock God whose poster lines the inside of half the lockers at school. But as she struggles to keep her emotional dirty laundry private, she learns that the truth can be hard to find when your life is in the headlines!
 
 

Welcome to the Kiss Off Blog Tour! This is the first of two posts! *due to a scheduling error it's actually the second!*
I loved the sound of Kiss Off so I was thrilled to get a chance to read it!

What I loved:
  • Poppy- I loved how spontaneous she was! She literally just picked a random boy, recorded songs when she felt it. I think the way she dealt with Cam and Nikki was very realistic, regardless of semantics it was a betrayal- the song was only an issue as it was so popular! The whole 'sexting' issue was again realistic- Her snap decision to send it was based on the very real anxieties of any girl separated from their new boyfriend, especially one who feels she has been cheated on before. At least he realised it was stupid straight away! I  
  • Youtube/music- I loved the role Youtube and Music played in the book it made it seem very current! I liked how casual Poppy and her friends were about her uploading her songs until 'Kiss Off' exploded! I thought her parents were a little uninvolved with it- they really could of learnt alot about Poppy's life by watching her videos!
  • Plot- I really enjoyed the plot, it was a bit familiar but the characters and inclusion of Youtube freshened it up!
  • Ty- Who wouldn't like a charming musician?? I liked how he was honest and laid all his cards out. I felt a bit sorry for him as his fame escalated because it made everything so much harder for him! I would of liked to read more of him..
  • Side cast- I always love a good side cast! What I liked most about this one was the variety! Most main characters have one or two 'main' friends and then a few nondescript ones throw in. Ty had distinct friends and Poppy actually had a variety of different friends! They were all well written and individual. I think Mads was my favourite- I'd actually love to read her story!
What I didn't love as much:
  • Poppy- I think what I liked and disliked about her most was how she really frustrated me and annoyed me like any teenager would! She was stubborn and very wishy washy! Also if some guy recorded my song and made it a hit my first question would be, where's my cheque?! Poppy did not seem at all bothered despite the fact she was struggling to save up for a car....
  • Cam- I didn't really understand why his role seemed to morph into a completely different one halfway through... I didn't buy Poppy and him together, if he liked her so much regardless of how forward Nikki was, he would have waited for her to come home to actually talk to her before jumping in to another relationship. I also disliked how easily Poppy let him off the hook compared to Ty!
  • Location- When I found out the author was from Australia I was super excited to read a book set in Australia! I was quite disappointed when I realised it wasn't. Nothing wrong with location, I just would have preferred Australia!
  • Warning/Rating- The Goodreads description has a warning of sexual references and coarse language. I didn't think there was any 'real' coarse language and the sexual references were realistic to the age group the book is aimed at. I've read similar books with no warning and far worse situations!
 
I really enjoyed the central, plot, the reality of the characters and the inclusion of Youtube!

I'm so excited for the sequel- I posted a sneak peek!
Much Love!
