Top 12 Pick: December 2011

Posted by Irish in Top 12 List3 Comments

I really need to stop reading so many good books because when I do it makes picking out one book for the month that I loved above all others all the more difficult. Although this month is far easier than last month was and there are only 3 contenders. They are:
A Rogue by Any Other Name by Sarah MacLean (review closer to release)
All three books were filled with strong and sometimes snarky characters….and all three I sat and read in a single sitting. They all held my attention right from the start and I hated for them all to end. They are all three very different books with just adds to how hard it is to chose THE one book that I loved above all others for December. But a choice needs to be made and so for my Top 12 Pick for December….I choose:
Deadly Cool by Gemma Halliday
I loved how this book reminded me of a beloved tv show. I enjoyed following the mystery and the developing relationship between Hartly and Chase. I liked how there was no instant love and I became really invested in their story. It has a gorgeous cover (although Rogue by Any Other Name has a great cover as well) and I just really really really want the sequel. I want to know more about Hartly and her friends. And while there will be more book in Sarah MacLean’s series it will be with different characters and just not the same as a direct sequel. Don’t get me wrong I am highly looking forward to it just in a different way. 
So there it is…my choice. All books mentioned are definitely worthy of your attention though as they are filling with awesome. What about you? What books did you read and enjoy this month? Let me know in the comments below.

    My favorite books for December were a tie too. The Watch That Ends the Night by Allan Wolf (about the Titanic) and I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan.

    Hands down, my favorite book for December was Lauren DeStefano’s Fever, book 2 in the Chemical Garden Trilogy. SO SO GOOD! I wasn’t exactly sure how I felt about the first one, but this was in amazing. Totally sucked me right in. Definitely worth reading when it comes out.

    My favourite book for December is Between Shades of Grey by Ruta Sepetys. Absolutely fantastic, a stunning punch straight to the heart!
