Best Reads So Far In 2012 | Birthday Wish Character


This week’s TGIF! 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?

I’ve read so many great books so far this year! It was a tough decision!! So I picked 5, hahaha! And here they are, in no particular order:



Follow Friday

This week’s Follow Friday question: Birthday Wishes — Blow out the candles and imagine what character could pop out of your cake…who is it and what book are they from??

Easy. Seth Mortensen from Richelle Mead’s Georgina Kincaid series. I LOVE HIM!!! Though he’s so not the jump-out-of-a-cake type of guy, lol.

This is Eion Bailey, who played August Booth in Once Upon a Time, the tv show.

    I haven’t read this yet but if that is who you picture then I just might have to get to this asap.

      Ha! Yeah, it took me a long time to find someone who came even close to who I pictured in my head.

    Everyone is going for VA characters this week! I’ve got the first 4 or 5 books but I need to reread the first one because I read it so long ago! Who is the guy in the pic? He looks SOOOOO familiar but I can’t pinpoint who he is “/ lol.

      Well, Seth is actually from a different Richelle Mead series, not VA, but I guess it’s almost the same thing. :) The guy in the picture is actor Eion Bailey, who most recently played August Booth in Once Upon a Time!

    I have read TFIOS and Such a Rush also and adored them! I still need to finish the Shade trilogy (I know, last person on the planet not to read these).

    PS – Thanks for the pic of August Booth. That just made my morning :)

    I absolutely love how you chose 5. My kind of girl. Ahh. Something like Normal and Such a Rush… good ones. I can see my Top 10/12 of the year formulating as we speak. I loved The Sky is Everywhere but I think I might have read it too close to Survival Kit to have the same impact. It was VERY good. But just not one of my best.

    I’ve heard SUCH good things about Something Like Normal and I love TFIOS. I also love the pic you posted of Eion Bailey. Gotta look him up now.

    I just started The Fault in Our Stars yesterday and I am loving it! It is the first John Green book I have read but I think I will be checking out the rest of his work ASAP once I am finished with it :)

    I have seen your other choices popping up all over and I have The Sky is Everywhere ordered from my library… (my TBR pile is giving me the evil eye for adding more to it lol)
