Top Ten Tuesday #16

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created here at The Broke and the Bookish. This feature was created because we are particularly fond of lists here at The Broke and the Bookish. We'd love to share our lists with other bookish folks and would LOVE to see your top ten lists!
Top Ten Books I Read In 2012
These books are by far my top 10 books of the year and while the genres, writing styles and over all stories are drastically different from one another each of these made my shortlist of the best books I've read this year.
I loved each and every one of them and reviewed all of them, I can't say enough about how much I enjoyed them.
It Rains in February: A Wife's Memoir of Love and Loss I Dare to Say: African Women Share Their Stories of Hope and Survival The Great Penguin Rescue: 40,000 Penguins, a Devastating Oil spill and the Inspiring Story of the World's Largest Animal Rescue Lover Mine (Black Dagger Brotherhood, #8)
Forbidden Sound of the Heart (The MacDonnells, #2) The Dragon's Harp (Era Of Dragons: The Lost Tales Of Gwenhwyfar) Bared to You (Crossfire, #1)
Reflected in You (Crossfire, #2) Wildflower Hill
What are YOUR Top 10 books of 2012?


  1. I'm so happy to see Forbidden on here. It's very dark and intense, but I still wish it was more popular. What a sad ending! I thought about this one for days after I finished it.

    My TTT

  2. Interesting books. I haven't read any of these but they seem intriguing.

    Here's my top 10

    My list

  7. Bared to You and Forbidden are on my TBR list.

  8. Wow...interesting list there. Ironically...I've read NOT A ONE. *-* Cie la vie...just gives me something new to check out. ^_^ As for me, so many great reads this year...umm, one of note would have to be NORTH POLE HIGH....pure whimsical YA lit holiday fun.

  9. Ohh, unique list :) Haven't read any of these (A) But I do own Forbidden, and it sounds so good. But also so heartbreaking. Sniffs. Anyway. Awesome list :D Thank you for sharing. <3

  10. Great list! I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood!

  11. Well, I love that you included "Sound of the Heart" on here!!!! So great to see my Historical Fiction made it onto your exclusive list! I hope your readers get a chance to check it out.
    Merry Christmas!! <3

  12. Thank you so much for including 'The Great Penguin Rescue' on your top 10 list of 2012! Writing it was a labor of love (for the penguins, of course), and I am touched and honored that you loved it so much. And, can I just say, I'm in absolute awe of your ability to read 238 books in one year! Wishing you and your readers everything wonderful in 2013.
