I need some amazing books in my life. I want to read books that blow me away, the type of titles that will end up in my list of favorites. Sometimes it’s frustrating when you feel like the books that you’ve been reading are just so-so. Don’t get me wrong, I have enjoyed reading some of the titles that I’ve reviewed (life’s too short to read books that suck). I just want more novels that I can enthusiastically recommend – those that will make me excited to blog about them, titles that will induce a book hangover or novels that will make me fall in love with its characters. I need more of those right now because I don’t want to experience a reading or blogging slump. Life has been really busy lately and that will continue in the coming weeks so I’m trying to be a little choosy about the titles I pick up.
So I’m here to ask for recommendations. Please let me know about the books that you’ve read and loved recently. Based on the books that I’ve reviewed in my blog, what do you think will work for me? Also, what novels have ended up in your favorites shelf this year? I’m always interested in hearing about other readers’ favorite titles and it’s been fun going through all the best of 2012 lists for the first half of the year. I have a list of books I plan to read in 2012 as well as a TBR pile in Goodreads if you’d like to go through that to let me know what I should prioritize.
