1. Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi
I finished this book almost a week ago and I haven't been able to read. It was that amazing. I was afraid it would be disappointing after it was so hyped up, but it exceeded every expectation I had. If it wasn't only January and if I wasn't an optimist, I'd say this is the best book I'll read all year.
2. Bloodrose by Andrea Cremer
A heartbreaking end to a heartbreaking series. I'm going to miss Calla and the pack so much. Check out my review here.
3. The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith
I didn't really know a lot going into this book, but it looked adorable. Plus, I'll probably pick up any book with an English boy. Anyways this turned out to be so wonderful. It had great literary layers that I didn't expect. Read my review here.
4. Angelfire by Courtney Allison Moulton
I finally got around to reading Angelfire and it was fabulous. I had so many Buffy flashbacks while reading this book, so naturally I freaking loved it. Ellie is like a ninja and then she has the angel version of Batman to back her up. How do you not love that? Read my review here.
5. Hallowed by Cynthia Hand
I just wish I was friends with Clara. And Tucker. And even Christian. I have so much love for these characters - they kind of are friends (she says without trying to sound like she doesn't have real friends...I do, I swear). I laughed and sobbed my way through this book and I can't wait to see what the future holds for Clara. Read my review here.
And because I can't help myself: the Honorable Mention:
