Top 10 Books of 2012 (Read, not published)

I like making lists. I’ll admit it. I’m a list maker. So at the end of the year I like to make a lists of all my favorite things from that year. Now, in this case, these are not all books that were published in 2012, they are just books I read in 2012. I’m way late on some of these books, and I realize that.

Yallfest! Charleston Young Adult Book Festival – Nov 10, 2012

So many awesome author events coming up in the near future for yours truly! I managed to snag tickets for Neil Gaiman next month (excuse me while I flail haphazardly), one of the Erin Hunters later in the month, and now I find out about this awesome YA Lit Event coming to Charleston, South Carolina in November of this year! As I was looking through the author list, I was mildly interested in a few of the guest speakers I was seeing… and then my eyes fell on one name.

BETH. FREAKING. REVIS. Author of the Across the Universe trilogy.

AHHHHHHHH I AM SO PSYCHED.

Definitely going to add more YA books to my “to read” list over the next couple of months, so I can be up on some of the other author guests at the event. Some are writers I’ve been meaning to check out for a while anyway. Cassandra Clare, Holly Black, Deborah Harkness (I *started* reading A Discovery of Witches and really like it so far), David Levithan, Cat Tiernan, and Kami Garcia, to name a few.

It’s a good thing John Green isn’t coming, because I might actually explode with happiness.
